Liverpool starting lineup (3-4-2-1):
Simon Mignolet | Mamdou Sakho, Martin Skrtel, Emre Can | Alberto Moreno, Lucas Leiva, Jordan Henderson, Lazar Markovic | Philippe Coutinho, Steven Gerrard | Raheem Sterling

Substitutes from: Danny Ward, Jose Enrique, Rickie Lambert, Javi Manquillo, Adam Lallana, Fabio Borini, Jordan Rossiter

Chelsea starting lineup (4-2-3-1):
Thibaut Courtois | Filipe Luis, John Terry, Gary Cahill, Branislav Ivanovic | Nemanja Matic, John Obi Mikel | Eden Hazard, Cesc Fabregas, Willian | Diego Costa

Substitutes from: Petr Cech, Kurt Zouma, Cesar Azpilicueta, Ramires, Oscar, Loic Remy, Didier Drogba


A mostly standard, full-strength lineup from Jose, but with Mikel coming in for Oscar to provide extra steel and strength in the midfield.  Fabregas slides up to the tip of the midfield triangle.  Courtois returns to the starting lineup, but Azpilicueta's only fit for the bench.  Interestingly, neither of Schurrle nor Salah make the bench today, with Remy providing a potential attacking wide-man substitute.

For reference, here's how all y'all would've lined up, based on your votes:
