Chelsea FC – 2nd
In midweek the west London outfit required a late Victor Moses header to win 3-2 against a very strong Shakhtar team. John Terry will be available for selection after serving his ban. England internationals Ashley Cole and Frank Lampard are still injured however Juan Mata and David Luiz are fit after playing in midweek.
With Terry expected to return to the centre of defence, Chelsea will be looking to gain three points. They have had a great start to the season however they have had a slight blip in recent weeks. The return of Juan Mata will help as the Spaniard has been in great form, earning himself Player of the Month for October.
Liverpool FC – 12th
A weakened Liverpool side lost 1-0 against Anzhi Makhachkala on Thursday. Both Glen Johnson and Pepe Reina could return from short injury layoffs. Liverpool may be in poor form but their history against Chelsea is impressive. They have won home and away against the Blues three times in the past four seasons.
If Liverpool are going to win Luis Suarez is going to have to be on the score sheet. He has scored five goals in his last five league games. However at times his finishing has been below par. With a lack of other goal threats, Liverpool will need him at his best to gain any points this weekend. Even though they are unbeaten in their last five league games, Liverpool have been unconvincing at times.
