Liverpool take on Chelsea this Friday night, as our tricky start to the Premier League campaign rolls on.
We have to travel down to Stamford Bridge, which will be our fifth away game in six all in all this term, against Antonio Conte’s impressive outfit.
The Italian has started well with the Blues, and they look like title contenders already – especially with the brilliant N’golo Kante in central midfield.
But thankfully for Liverpool, skipper John Terry is unlikely to feature according to the Echo, meaning David Luiz will probably come into the backline alongside Gary Cahill.
The ageing centre-back picked up an injury against Swansea yesterday and left the Liberty on crutches.
Brazilian David Luiz, who was re-signed this summer for big cash, is a defensive liability – and while he’s very good on the ball – we’d much prefer to be facing him than Terry, who’s still one of the best in the business.
In terms of our own centre-backs, it’ll be interesting to see whether Jurgen Klopp recalls Dejan Lovren to start alongside Joel Matip, or if he sticks with Lucas despite our own Brazilian’s mistake on Saturday…
