Chelsea Predicted XI: We predict Chelsea manager Frank Lampard’s starting XI as they host Premier League champions Liverpool at Stamford Bridge.

This afternoon at 4:30pm will show the first clash of the top four teams as old rivals Chelsea and Liverpool go head-to-head for three Premier League points.

Following their 3-1 victory away at Brighton on the opening weekend of the season, Lampard will be desperate for another positive performance and some kind of a result.

Of course, Lampard would probably take a draw if asked now, but both sides will be expected to play for the win and it should make for a fascinating game of football.

Here we predict Chelsea’s starting XI…


After a rollercoaster of a season last term, Lampard has openly backed his number 1 Kepa and he looked assured in this season’s first outing on the South Coast. There’s no doubting the 25-year-old’s talent, but he has been known to make mistakes, especially in the big games.
