Both Liverpool and Chelsea are without their first choice on the right wing as they gear up for the big clash at Anfield.
The Blues have been blessed this season when it comes to injuries, and this has allowed manager Antonio Conte to field his first choice starting XI throughout most of the campaign. He does so once more against Liverpool, with only Willian replacing Pedro in his 3-5-3 set-up.
On the other hand, Liverpool have been dogged by injury woes recently. Manager Jurgen Klopp has fielded right-back Nathaniel Clyne despite injury concerns, but Senegalese winger Sadio Mane hasn’t made the starting XI.
Mane has just returned to Anfield, after his international commitments were brought to an end by Senegal’s elimination from the African Cup of Nations (AFCON).
