Liverpool v Chelsea 2014: Predicted Line-ups and Team News


Chelsea  starting XI: Schwarzer; Azpilicueta, Ivanovic, Kalas, Cole; Lampard (c), Mikel, Matic; Salah, Ba, Schurrle.

Subs: Hilario, Ake, Cahill, Van Ginkel, Baker, Willian, Torres

Liverpool starting XI: Mignolet, Johnson, Flanagan, Skrtel, Sakho, Gerrard, Allen, Lucas, Coutinho, Sterling, Suarez

Jose Mourinho says that he will field a weakened team against Liverpool, but history says that the Portuguese isn’t always telling the truth in the Friday press conferences.

Memories are drawn back to the League Cup match against Arsenal earlier in the season when the Portuguese threatened to field a weakened team. The starting line-up, however, consisted of players like Willian, Juan Mata, Cahill, and Samuel Eto’o.

If this is his idea of a weakened team, then Chelsea are in with a shout to get a result at Anfield tomorrow.

Team News:

The Portuguese boss has confirmed that Eden Hazard, John Terry, Petr Cech, and Samuel Eto’o will not be available. Ramires is suspended for the rest of the league campaign. Marco van Ginkel has returned from injury and was on the bench against Atletico.

Mourinho is likely to be highly cautious this time around. Frank Lampard, John obi Mikel, Salah, and Nemanja Matic are almost certain to play since they will not be involved in the Champions League second leg against Atletico Madrid.

Players like Tomas Kalas and Nathan Ake could be expected to feature heavily while youngster Lewis Baker, who scored a stunning goal against Arsenal U21, could also play a role.
