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

Defenders:

It hasn’t been discussed that often, but Lampard’s squad isn’t in the best shape with quite a few injuries to contend with. New signings Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell are not ready for action yet. We expect Lampard to name the same back four that played at Brighton, goalscorer Reece James at right back, Marcos Alonso on the other side, with Kurt Zouma and Andreas Christensen in the middle.
