      Liverpool 1-1 Chelsea: In game and Post Match discussion
      Aug 28, 2021 04:30:32 pm





      Anfield waiting to host the European Champions to beat them




      Starting XI: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho, Henderson, Elliott; Salah, Firmino, Mane

      Subs: Kelleher, Konate, Thiago, Keita, Gomez, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Minamino, Jota, Tsimikas.

      Andy Robertson returns for Liverpool’s Premier League clash with Chelsea at Anfield this evening.

      The full-back makes his first competitive appearance of the season after recovering from an ankle issue as the Reds make three changes.

      Fabinho is named in midfield, while Roberto Firmino returns in attack, with the trio replacing Kostas Tsimikas, Naby Keita and Diogo Jota.

      Jurgens showing big balls playing Elliot. Normally likes a condensed midfield against the big teams but looks like he wants to go for it. Jota to come off the bench to score the winner. Haven’t been so pumped for a match in ages! Come on lads!

      wow, Jürgen throwing Elliott in the deep end of the pool. Elliott instead of Keita is the only surprise, i thought Naby has played very well and didn't deserve to come off. Ditto for Jota but i can understand the tactical approach to Bobby and his ability to press and drop deep to break up play in the middle.

      Hadn't realised Fabinho was back available.  Good to see him back in the team.  Henderson and Fabinho giving Chelsea a lot of respect, which to be fair they probably do deserve.

      Big call going for Firmino over Jota.  Good luck lads.

      Surprised to see Harvey there but I'm sure he'll rise to the occasion. Not surprised Bobby is back in though, think we will need his link up play today.

      Come on Harvey, show the world that we do not need to spend millions. Bold and courageous but either you have it or you do not.

      Jota and Keita will feel a little down but they will be off the bench wanting to make a point.

      When i saw the starting lineup my reflex reaction was to think "oh god, don't tell me Keita is hurt AGAIN", but took a sigh of relief when i saw he's on the bench. He's so damn good when healthy.

      and it doesn't even include Jones in it. But we have no depth, i have been told.

      I can only guess Elliott has trained superbly this week. Same as Firmino? Jürgen's definitely one to play those who has shown everything in training. Big day for Harvey!

      I do not agree with Jürgen about Robbo, but I agree with him about Elliott. If he brings Harvey in such a game you know the kid has it, just like TAA back then.

      Jürgen's opinion is the only one that matters.

      Big call on Elliot? maybe,but  Think the lad deserves to keep his place after his standout performance last weekend lagainst Burnley moreover the lad has got a set off balls.

      Could be the proper beginning of a great Liverpool career, not the first match but the first really big one.

      Glad to see Robbo back.

      A bit surprised to see Jota on the bench, but as Jürgen would say, he can only select 11.

      They just showed the stadium and it looks like the fans have learned to arrive a little earlier (at least for now). Anfield looking gorgeous in the sunshine. Come on boys!
