Chelsea host Liverpool in the fifth round of the FA Cup tonight as the Blues welcome Jurgen Klopp’s men to Stamford Bridge.
The Reds suffered their first league defeat of the season when they fell to a shock 3-0 defeat to Watford at Vicarage Road at the weekend, although they are still highly likely to lift their first Premier League title at the end of the campaign.
Klopp has been criticised for naming a young team in both the Carabao Cup and FA Cup due to fixture congestion in the earlier rounds, but has named a stronger team for the trip to Chelsea.
The Reds have made seven changes for the game with Virgil van Dijk, Sadio Mane, Fabinho and Andy Robertson retaining their places from the loss against the Hornets.
