Liverpool are travelling all the way to London to face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League opener this week.

The scenario of the game is not the way Chelsea wanted it to be. It is humiliating for the defending champions to sit 15th on the table after 10 games.

Liverpool, also are not having the best of seasons, but they now have Jurgen Klopp as their manager after the sacking of Brendan Rodgers. They have a new hope about their future now that ‘Klopp for Kop’ has happened.

The game promises to be an exciting one with a lot at stake, mostly from Chelsea’s point of view. 

It is reported that Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho might be sacked if he loses the game.

Both teams have announced their starting XI for the game. Here are the lineups-

Chelsea starting XI:

Begovic; Zouma, Cahill, Terry (c), Azpilicueta; Mikel, Ramires; Willian, Oscar, Hazard; Diego Costa

Chelsea substitutes:

Amelia, Baba, Matic, Fabregas, Kenedy, Falcao, Remy

Liverpool starting XI:

Mignolet, Clyne, Skrtel, Sakho, Moreno, Lucas, Can, Milner, Lallana, Coutinho, Firmino

Liverpool substitutes:

Bogdan, Lovren, Benteke, Allen, Ibe, Teixeira, Randall
