Liverpool are set to take on fellow Premier League side Chelsea in the International Champions Cup in the United States of America.
Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has fielded four new signings in the form of Loris Karius, Ragnar Klavan, Marko Grujic and Sadio Mane. Youngster Ovie Ejaria is named in the starting lineup and would be a part of a midfield three along with Grujic and Kevin Stewart. Defender Dejan Lovren has been handed the captain’s armband and he will be hoping to guide his side to victory.

For Chelsea, manager Antonio Conte has deployed a 4-2-4 setup. Willian and Victor Moses are expected to start on either wings for the Blues with a strike pairing of Bertrand Traore and Ruben Loftus-Cheek. Academy product Ola Aina will play at left-back – joining three experienced defenders in Cesar Azpilicueta, Gary Cahill and captain John Terry to form the back line. Nemanja Matic and Cesc Fabregas are hoping to regain their 2014/15 season form, and will start at the heart of Chelsea’s midfield.
Team v Liverpool (4-2-4): Begovic; Azpilicueta, Cahill, Terry (c), Aina; Fabregas, Matic; Wilian, Traore, Loftus-Cheek, Moses. #CFC
