Picking the Best Potential Chelsea Lineup to Face Liverpool on Saturday

Loading...








Chelsea are back in domestic action this weekend as they head up north to face Liverpool in Saturday's evening kickoff.


The visitors are coming off the back of three successive wins but will have to stay strong on Saturday, with their opponents having a lethal strike force.

Saturday will be a big test for the Blues as they come back from Azerbaijan, and with that in mind, here is how Antonio Conte could line his Chelsea side up at Anfield.

​Courtois has been impressive with Chelsea in recent weeks and another game beckons where he will need to stand up and be dominant between the sticks.

​Gary Cahill was rested in midweek, albeit coming on in the 68th minute, but is set to come back into the side for Saturday's trip.

Another player rested was youngster Andreas Christensen, who didn't play a single minute on Wednesday night, and it looks as though Antonio Conte has put his trust in the Dane to face Liverpool.

Cesar Azpilicueta has played every minute in the league this season and will most likely feature again here.

Victor Moses is still a doubt for Chelsea and won't be risked. Zappacosta will retain his spot, whilst on the opposite flank Marcos Alonso will once again start.

The Blues switched to a four-man midfield against Qarabag but they are likely to revert to the 3-5-2 which has brought them success.

Cesc Fabregas and N'Golo Kante occupied the two roles during the week and should be joined along with Tiemoue Bakayoko​, who was another absentee on Wednesday after he was given time to rest.

A false nine won't be in order on Saturday evening as Alvaro Morata is set to return to the starting XI after being dropped against Qarabag.

Michy Batshuayi remains sidelined and Morata needed some rest, but the Spaniard will come back in at Anfield.

Eden Hazard has been sensational since recovering from injury but is in full swing now and will be looked upon to create chances and fire Chelsea to victory against Liverpool.
