Liverpool are without captain Jordan Henderson and centre-back Joel Matip. James Milner should recover from a knock, as should Dejan Lovren. Xherdan Shaqiri returned to play a late cameo role in the last game.
Chelsea may rotate after their FA Cup semi-final win at the weekend saw them revert to 3-4-3. Fikayo Tomori and Billy Gilmour are injured, while N’Golo Kante is a doubt.
Liverpool: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho, Keita, Wijnaldum; Salah, Firmino, Mane.
Chelsea: Kepta; Azpilicueta, Zouma, Rudiger; James, Jorginho, Kovacic, Alonso; Willian, Giroud, Pulisic.
Much depends on the two teams’ mentalities and ability to avoid errors, as the Reds will want a party after a victory but Chelsea have more to play for on the day.
