Chelsea vs Liverpool Preview, Team News & Possible Lineups:
Thomas Tuchel has trouble on his hands as we speak with Romelu Lukaku not very happy with the current system how Chelsea operates and there are some issues arising in Chelsea camp as we move to new year. Having lead the league for most of the first half of the season, Chelsea have dropped off due to several poor results against teams they were expected win.
Liverpool have similar issues as they dominate most of the games but somehow keep dropping points leaving them 12 points behind City but they do have two games in hand including Sunday’s big clash against the blues at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea have issues in defense with Reece James and Andreas Christensen joining Ben Chillwell on the treatment table. Timo Werner is still missing while Thiago Silva is a doubt which means Malang Sarr might start in defense. However Kai Havertz is available again and it will be interesting to see whether Lukaku’s recent comments have any repercussions regarding his place in starting lineup.
As far as Liverpool are concerned this will be Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Naby Keita’s last game before they fly out for international duty. Andry Robertson will be out due to suspension. WhileMinamino and Thiago will both miss the Chelsea game. Which means Oxlade-Chamberlain to start in midfield alongside Fabino and Henderson.
