First XI Prediction: Chelsea

After a relatively stress free Champions League quarter final against porter, it’s back to the title race and a home match against Chelsea. Here’s who I think will take to the field against them!

Two good saves, and looked a lot less nervous than in recent matches. Hopefully another clean sheet today.

Alisson:

Arnold : Porto seemed to be getting in on the inside of him, but was that due to Lovren? Has a big day today, as Hazard seems to float out to his side of the field.

Van Dijk:

Another opportunity to show why he’s the best defender in the world, up against Hazard and Higuain.

Joel Matip:

Rested against Porto, and with it probably being too early for Gomez, I can’t see past Matip starting.

Andy Robertson:

Back from his European suspension, it’ll be great seeing him running up and down that left wing.

Fabinho:

Does Klopp go for his tried and tested big team midfield, or does he go for Fabinho? I’m going for Fabinho!

James Milner:

Usually picked for the big games, I’d be surprised if that chdnges today.

Jordan Henderson:

“Hendo” has looked like a man possessed playing further up the field in the last couple of games, hopefully he can carry that form forward through to the end of the season.

Sadio Mane:

I think that Chelsea’s full backs can be got at, so this could be a huge game for Mane and Salah.

Roberto Firmino:

Firmino seems to be hitting form at the right time, finally his World Cup hangover seems to be over.

Mohamed Salah:

Played well against Porto, without scoring, hopefully he shoot down his old club today!

That’s the team I think will take to the pitch today , do you agree with me, tweet me at @ianyoungkop.
