Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp makes one change to the side that started at Hull City last time out for the Premier League clash with second-place Tottenham today.
Midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum returns to the starting lineup for Emre Can, who starts on the bench today.
Holding midfielder Lucas will continue at centre-half, as Dejan Lovren injured and Ragnar Klavan is only fit enough to earn a place on the bench.
For Tottenham, they are still without defenders Danny Rose and Jan Vertonghen, but manager Mauricio Pochettino kept faith with the same team that beat Middlesbrough last weekend.
Attacking midfielder Dele Alli and striker Harry Kane will be hoping to continue their impressive recent form for Spurs, who will close Chelsea’s lead atop the Premier League standings to six points.
Chelsea play Burnley on Sunday.
Liverpool, meanwhile, are aiming to win their fist Premier League in 2017. They dropped to sixth in the Premier League standings before kick-off.
