How Chelsea could line up against Liverpool


It is just a football team with a specific way of playing.

Mignolet made secret of his desire to leave in the summer after Klopp splashed out £65m on Brazil goalkeeper Alisson.

"That's completely normal. There's no time frame to say: "I give you that, I give you that, I give you that".

"Six games in, it's very hard but I'd go Liverpool or Man City, then Chelsea, Man Utd or Tottenham and Arsenal sixth", Souness told Sky Sports.

Andreas Christensen will also be hoping to make a rare start this season but David Luiz was rested in the Europa League game last week so Sarri may be tempted to start him away to a risky Liverpool side.

"No, I don't think so".

The more important clash is the Premier League head-to-head on Saturday, so it would appear that this would be the flawless time for numerous first-choice players to be rested. It is one competition we have to play, not four, so that's how we will take it; with all concentration, with all focus, with all intensity.

"If we go to the next round - I don't know when the next round is - then we will go into the game with all we have".

"It looks like the more Eden plays, the better he gets", Zola said of Hazard, who was voted the seventh-best player in the world at the Best FIFA Football Awards in London on Monday. For this one, you needed somebody to overlap and make it hard to defend, so that one defender at least is busy.

"It's only because the game is so quick and so intense that it needs to get natural". To improve something you need half a year to make the next step.

The coaches will be getting used to each others' company over the next five days, Liverpool and Chelsea meeting in the Premier League this weekend. But the situation is nobody in this team at the moment is bad. It's Wembley and I remember when we were there we wanted to win it - we were close, but we didn't.

Cahill is in the final year of his contract, meaning he can begin negotiations to join other clubs on a free transfer next summer anytime from January 1 and Chelsea are unlikely to receive a significant fee for selling him in the winter window. We will try again.

"Now we want to show that we are ready for that as well".
