Chelsea vs. Liverpool: Lineups & Game Thread

Julian Finney

"The team wants to be at the top of the table. We know what we need to do, and we are always trying to do the best things on the pitch."

"It will be a fantastic game for everyone to watch. Of course we just want to win and push hard to show our power and get closer to the top of the table. I hope we can produce another great exhibition and we can win."

Well, here we go.  Mourinho presses the emergency panic button and starts David Luiz as the terrier next to Lampard in central midfield .  Up front, we get Eto'o again, in front of a trio of Hazard, Oscar, Willian.  Meanwhile, Rodgers makes just one change from midweek (Agger in, Cissokho out) and their injury issues get higlighted with 16-year-old Jordan Rossiter getting a spot on the bench.

UP THE BLUES!
