Liverpool predicted XI v Chelsea: Fabinho and Alisson both start

Liverpool face Chelsea at Anfield this evening looking to give their Champions League push a massive boost.

The reigning champions ended a run of four straight defeats in the Premier League with a 2-0 win over Sheffield United at the weekend but there is still work to do.

Chelsea were held to a goalless draw by Manchester United at the weekend and they too will want to claim an important win tonight.

Ahead of this evening’s contest under the Anfield lights, we looked at the team Klopp could choose to go with.

In goal and back four

Alisson missed the win at Bramall Lane due to the sad passing of his father but he could return this evening.

Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson will continue in their usual positions at full-back.

At centre-back, there could be a chance as Fabinho looks set to return from a spell on the sidelines.

The £100,000-a-week player could partner Nat Phillips who was very impressive once again at the weekend.

Midfield

Gini Wijnaldum has been one of Liverpool’s standout performers this season and he looks set to start this evening.

 

Curtis Jones fired Liverpool in front against the Blades at the weekend and he is likely to keep his place in the starting line-up.

Completing the trio will be Thiago Alcantara who will face the team who he made his Premier League debut against.

In attack

There isn’t a lot to see here as Klopp is likely to stick with his tried and tested front three.

Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane should all start the game tasked with firing Liverpool to victory.

Egyptian striker Salah has been in decent form this season but the other two could do with a confidence-boosting performance.

Diogo Jota could return to the bench this evening.

Here is how Liverpool’s team might look this evening:
