VIDEO: Liverpool vs Chelsea 2-0 – EPL Highlights

The big team news as far as Chelsea are concerned is that Higuain and Giroud are both among the subs, so Hazard will play through the middle of the front three, flanked by Willian and Hudson-Odoi, who is making his third league start in a row. The visitors make six changes from their trip to Prague on Thursday, though in terms of alterations from their 2-0 win over West Ham six days ago there is just one new face – Willian coming in for Higuain.

Liverpool make two alterations to the side that beat Porto 2-0 in their Champions League quarter-final first leg here on Tuesday. Both those changes come at the back, as Robertson returns from suspension to replace Milner and Matip is preferred to Lovren. Those changes were expected, and Klopp has otherwise decided to stick with the same midfield and attack, meaning there is only a place on the bench for Wijnaldum. Sturridge, who scored a late equaliser in the reverse league fixture in September, is also included among the subs.
