Chelsea football club will take on Liverpool in their second game of the season on Sunday, with the blues looking forward to a home win here are all you need to know before the match on Sunday.
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is boosted by the return of Mateo Kovacic for Sunday’s big match with Liverpool.
The Croatian midfielder missed their opening game of the season against Brighton due to a one-game suspension after being sent off against Arsenal in last month’s FA Cup final.
With the midfielder back, we think the boss will need to drop one of those who started the match against Brighton last week.
Kovacic is set to partner with N’Golo Kante, and it seems Jorginho will be the one to leave the way for the Croatian International.
The boss may look to bring in Antonio Rudiger for Andreas Christensen as the German’s pace could be handy against Liverpool’s speedy forward line.
In attack, we think although Werner did a great job against Brighton, Olivier Giroud will be a more preferable option as the Frenchman will be able to match Virgil van Dijk’s physicality.
With Olivier Giroud as the main striker, we think Timo Werner will likely start on the left-wing. That will give Kai Havertz the chance to play on his favorite wing, which is the no 10 position.
Christian Pulisic, Hakim Ziyech, and Ben Chilwell are still out on injuries.
with Christian pulisic still out on injury we think Mason Mount will be on the right, that will to complete the Chelsea attack.
THE predicted XI to face Liverpool is a (4-2-3-1) formation.
With Kepa on goal; James, Rudiger, Zouma, Alonso in the defense; Kante, Kovacic; Mount, Havertz, Werner in the midfield position, and finally Giroud as the number 9
