Premier League
 
Teams: Chelsea v Liverpool
 
Venue: Stamford Bridge, London
 
Time: 2.45pm
 
Chelsea have only managed one win in their last seven games in all competitions, but have not lost against Liverpool in their last eight meetings.
 
The Blues were known for their solid defence when they claimed the league title last season, but currently have the third worst defensive record, having conceded 19 goals in 10 games.
 
Meanwhile, Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool have drawn their last three Premier League ties and have won only one of their last 10 away league games.
 
The Reds have not won a game at Stamford Bridge since 2011, when they claimed three consecutive victories.
 
In team news, Chelsea's Diego Costa and Pedro are doubts for the clash, Nemanja Matic is back after his ban, and Branislav Ivanovic and Thibaut Courtois remain sidelined.
 
Liverpool will have Christian Benteke back in the fray after his knee injury, but Daniel Sturridge is still unavailable alongside Kolo Toure. James Milner is back after a one-match suspension.
 
Here's how the teams line up: 
 
Chelsea: Begovic; Zouma, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta; Mikel, Ramires; Willian, Oscar, Hazard; Costa.
 
Liverpool: Mignolet; Clyne, Skrtel, Sakho, Moreno; Lucas, Can; Milner, Lallana, Coutinho; Firmino.
