Chelsea boss Frank Lampard made one change to the XI that started the 3-1 victory over Brighton, with Mateo Kovacic replacing Ruben Loftus-Cheek in the starting XI for the Liverpool game.
Explaining the reason behind his team selection against Liverpool, Lampard said: “It’s a change from my point of view.
“Different games bring different problems. We’re playing the team that were the best in the country by a long way last season and Kovacic gives you some presence in midfield.
“We want to play and get on the ball. Against Brighton it was tough for us to do that for different reasons but today hopefully we can get more of the ball there.”
