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.


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.


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.
