A host of 1st choice returns
Chelsea played a somewhat inexperienced squad against Manchester United last weekend. While Lampard will probably continue his policy of giving the younger guys a chance in the league, he is most likely going to rely on experienced hands in important matches such as tonight’s game.
A number of injuries and late returns forced Lampard’s hand in the season opener but with most of his squad at his disposal, Liverpool are going to face a tougher and replenished side tonight. N’Golo Kante, Alonso, Pedro, Willian and Giroud are all set to return to the team, giving Chelsea much more experience, formidability and stability to the side.
