Georginio Wijnaldum returns to the starting lineup as Liverpool prepare to take on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in Sunday’s marquee fixture.
Jurgen Klopp has made one change to the side that was beaten by Napoli in the UEFA Champions League earlier this week as Liverpool get set to face off against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. There are no shuffles at the back, however.
Adrian keeps his place in goal for Liverpool, with Alisson Becker still out injured. Up ahead, the defensive line remains the same, with Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson retaining their places as the two full-backs, while Joel Matip continues to partner Virgil van Dijk at the heart of the defence.

The only change of the day comes in midfield, with James Milner making way for Georginio Wijnaldum. Wijnaldum has Fabinho and Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson for company in the middle of the park, with Milner dropping down to the bench.
The three-pronged attack remains unchanged, with Roberto Firmino reprising the false nine role once again, while Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane complete the front trio. Xherdan Shaqiri is the viable attacking backup.
Liverpool Starting XI: Adrian; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Wijnaldum; Salah, Firmino, Mane
