Frank Lampard has opted to keep most of the team from the FA Cup win with Kepa Arrizabalaga coming in for Willy Caballero the only change for Liverpool game.

As expected Chelsea are sticking with the same shape since the three centre-backs; Kurt Zouma, Antonio Rudiger and Cesar Azpilicueta worked quite well in their 3-1 win over Manchester United.

The formation also suits Reece James and especially Marcos Alonso who enjoy making forward runs.

In midfield, since N’Golo Kante has not recovered from a hamstring injury, Mateo Kovacic and Jorginho who impressed in the last game keep their places.

While, Mason Mount, Olivier Giroud and Willian will fill the front three spots.

Mount has also become the first Chelsea academy product to make his first-team debut and complete 50 appearances in the same season.

However, contrary to the previous speculations about being rested, Christian Pulisic will have to start this game on the bench.

Although, Lampard previously said the American picked up a knock before Man United game.

Some Chelsea fans on Twitter have had their say on Lampard’s decision to bench Pulisic.
