It’s finally time for Lampard vs Klopp

And he will hope Timo Werner and Kai Havertz help fulfil this aim as the two summer signings start for Chelsea.

There is no Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva or Hakim Ziyech for the Blues, however, as they all remain injured following their moves to Stamford Bridge.

Two of Liverpool’s three summer signings play a role at Stamford Bridge today.

Kostas Tsimikas, the left-back, begins on the bench alongside Spain midfielder Thiago, who completed his much-anticipated move to Anfield on Friday.

Diogo Jota’s transfer went through on Saturday, however, which means he was not registered in time to feature today.
