Hot off the back of a huge 2-1 away win on Wednesday against Liverpool at Anfield, Maurizio Sarri’s side will be desperate to keep the momentum going and will no doubt feel good about winning again against the Reds.
Eden Hazard is set to return to the Chelsea starting XI on Saturday after a wonder goal winner at Anfield and will be confident of adding to his six goal haul this season.
Kepa’s return between the sticks for the Blues is absolutely no surprise, but will have been encouraging for fans and the manager to see such a confident performance by Willy Caballero at Anfield midweek.
Not all is rosey for Maurizio Sarri as the injuries have been mounting – there are doubts over Antonio Rudiger, Andreas Christensen, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Pedro ahead of Liverpool on Saturday.
The defensive woes might force a Gary Cahill / David Luiz partnership on Saturday, but it could be that Azpilicueta moves in the centre and Zappacosta comes in on the right-hand side.
CFCnet’s predicted Chelsea line up vs Liverpool is based very much on the doubts surrounding certain players’ fitness ahead of the weekend’s undoubted top fixture, however the Chelsea team news will likely become clearer in the 24 hours leading up to kick-off.

Goalkeeper: Kepa Arrizabalaga
