Chelsea vs Liverpool: Team news & key stats

For Chelsea, a knee surgery will keep Ben Chilwell out for the rest of the season while Timo Werner recovers from COVID-19. Whereas Ruben Loftus-Cheek may not be in contention since testing positive for the virus.

Thiago Silva and Reece James have hamstring issues and Andreas Christensen suffered a back problem in their last outing.

Liverpool defender Nat Phillips will take another few weeks to recover from the fractured cheekbone, with Harvey Elliott also on his way back from a serious ankle injury.

Andrew Robertson's ban stands after his red card in the Premier League tie against Tottenham on December 19, while Spanish goalkeeper Adrian is out with a calf strain and Takumi Minamino doubtful due to muscle fatigue.

Divock Origi and Thiago Alcantara are also a duobt for this match following an injury and a positive coronavirus test respectively, though the latter has returned to training.

Key Stats:

  • After losing four consecutive Premier League games against Liverpool between 2019 and 2020, Chelsea are unbeaten in their last two against the Reds (W1 D1), though both of these games have come at Anfield.
