Chelsea are riding high after snatching the UEFA Super Cup and prevailing in their London derbies against Arsenal and Crystal Palace. Thomas Tuchel's team will look to re-signee Romelu Lukaku again to lead the attack, but the Blues have plenty of other options, especially since midfielder N’Golo Kante is likely to be back from injury. Unfortunately, Christian Pulisic tested positive for COVID-19 before the Arsenal match and will likely be unavailable against Liverpool as well.
Jurgen Klopp also has multiple scorers at his disposal, led by Diogo Jota, who notched goals against Burnley and Norwich City. Keeping Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Trent Alexander-Arnold in check will also present a difficult task for Chelsea's defenders. The Reds, for their part, will be counting on ace defender Virgil van Dijk to try to contain Lukaku.
