He'll be expected to apply backwards pressure on Jorginho, and is also likely to position himself cleverly to the right, in order to drag out David Luiz whose positional play has been questionable this season. He should not expect that luxury against Klopp's side on Saturday. Despite two injured players, Sarri will be anxious about just one spot in the heart of the defense with David Luiz being his other first-choice centre-back. It was taken seriously by both managers and the final result provided a mental victory for Maurizio Sarri. Stopping him will go a long way to stopping Chelsea.

Upfront, Alvaro Morata once more failed to find the scoresheet from the starting lineup in midweek and this should witness Olivier Giroud feature from the off.
"Eden Hazard has scored four times in his last two home PL games and Liverpool need to keep the Blues talisman at arm's length". In my opinion, Sarri should make a decision, then stick with it for the foreseeable future. Both managers are known for playing a high-velocity, high pressing style of football so there'll be goals in this one for sure - hopefully, more of them for the men in Red. His performances dropped last season under Antonio Conte and the team's failure to qualify for the Champions League left them vulnerable. "The attacking players benefit from that". That clash at Anfield was an appetiser. Liverpool's defence was in shambles and the entire Chelsea fanbase in raptures.
