  • Chelsea visit Liverpool in the EFL Cup on Wednesday night.
  • We predict how the Blues might lineup for the fixture.
  • Do you agree with our selection, Chelsea fans?

The dust is yet to settle from Chelsea’s 0-0 draw with West Ham United on Sunday, but Maurizio Sarri already has to look forward.

Chelsea face Liverpool in the EFL Cup, with either of the first and second place teams in the Premier League set to fall at the first hurdle.

Sarri opted against resting players for our Europa League clash with PAOK last week, but he may have no choice but to for this one. We looked lacklustre and sluggish at the London Stadium on Sunday, which may force the Italian into further changes to his starting eleven.

The former Napoli manager may have changes forced upon him, also. As Physio Room report, Antonio Rudiger and Pedro are thought to miss out of Chelsea’s fixture with Liverpool on Wednesday evening.

Taking that into consideration, as well as Sarri’s need to shuffle his pack, we have devised a likely starting eleven that will take to the field on Wednesday. Let us know what you think of our selection, Blues!
