Chelsea vs. Liverpool: Lineups & Game Thread

Blast from the past - Laurence Griffiths

Well, here we go. It's Chelsea vs. the bogey team. Chelsea need a win to keep pace with Manchester United who are currently 4 points ahead in first place, having already played and won (in yet another massive comeback fashion) this weekend. Manchester City have also super-sub'd their way back into a victory against Tottenham. Thanks for nothing, AVB.

Where once there was Luis Garcia, there is now only Luis Suarez.

How annoying.

Chelsea starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Petr Cech; Ryan Bertrand, John Terry, Branislav Ivanovic, Cesar Azpilicueta; John Obi Mikel, Ramires; Eden Hazard, Oscar, Juan Mata; Fernando Torres

Substitutes from: Ross Turnbull, Paulo Ferreira, Gary Cahill, Oriol Romeu, Marko Marin, Victor Moses, Daniel Sturridge

Liverpool starting lineup (3-5-2): Brad Jones; Daniel Agger, Jamie Carragher, Andre Wisdom; Jose Enrique, Nuri Sahin, Joe Allen, Steven Gerrard, Glen Johnson; Luis Suarez, Raheem Sterling

Substitutes from: Peter Gulacsi, Oussama Assaidi, Jordan Henderson, Sebastian Coates, Stewart Downing, Suso

Di Matteo rings the changes in the Chelsea backline, while Liverpool come out with a rather Kenny Dalglish-esque formation.
