Starting XI – Chelsea vs Liverpool

Chelsea will want to put their disappointing FA Cup loss behind them as they welcome Liverpool to Stamford Bridge for the second- leg of the Capital One Cup semi-final.

Drogba Wants To Extend Chelsea Stay

The first-leg at Anfield ended in a 1-1 draw, with Liverpool actually having the better of the game - despite Chelsea taking the lead thanks to an Eden Hazard penalty.

Both teams are set to play their full strength teams and a win for either side will put them within touching distance of silverware this season.

Liverpool have scored in their last six visits to Stamford Bridge, but are without a win in their last trips.

The Reds are the most successful club in the Capital One Cup history, winning it eight times after reaching eleven finals. However, this is only the second time Liverpool have progressed beyond the fourth round in seven seasons

Chelsea, on the other hand, have appeared in 11 semi-finals, but have only gone through to the final six times.

Follow the Game In Out Match Centre

Last but not least, the Reds have won five successive away games in all competitions and that dates back to their 3-0 defeat at Manchester United on 14 December.

Here's how they line up:

Chelsea: Courtois; Ivanovic, Zouma, Terry, Filipe Luis; Fabregas, Matic; Willian, Oscar, Hazard; Costa.

Liverpool: Mignolet; Can, Skrtel, Sakho; Markovic, Lucas, Henderson, Moreno; Gerrard; Coutinho, Sterling
