Liverpool vs Chelsea prediction: Combined XI featuring strongest stars

Liverpool vs Chelsea – Combined XI

Formation: 4-3-3

Kepa Arrizabalaga (GK)

Kepa has been a force to reckon with for Chelsea. If Alisson was fit, it would have been a different story but the Blues goalie certainly has an edge over Adrian.

Andy Robertson (LB)

Robertson’s quality is unquestionable and hence, he has secured a spot in this combined XI.

Andreas Christensen (CB)

Christensen has the potential to be a solid player for the Blues and he can certainly make a difference.

Joel Matip (CB)

Matip is one of Liverpool’s most reliable performers. Granted, he has had his off-colour days but overall, no one can doubt his abilities.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (RB)

The young Englishman made waves with his promising displays last season and the ongoing season should be no different.

James Milner (DM)

Milner is among Liverpool’s finest and his experience always comes in handy for the Reds.

Jorginho (CM)

Jorginho shined for Chelsea under Maurizio Sarri last season and his skills are truly impeccable. He can make all the difference on his day.

Naby Keita (CM)

A solid box-to-box ace, Keita would be an ideal fit to complete the midfield trio here.

Mohamed Salah (RW)

Salah’s pace and goalscoring instincts are second to none, thus providing him with a spot in this line-up.

Christian Pulisic (LW)

The Bundesliga is teeming with talented youngsters and Pulisic is no different. The upcoming clash would be a solid opportunity for him to prove his worth.

Roberto Firmino (ST)

Although there have been debates about Firmino’s lack of goals, one cannot deny that his contributions are far more important than just scoring goals. Thus, the Brazilian deserves a spot in this line-up.
