    The Reds dropped to ninth in the table after losing 3-0 to Brighton last time out while Potter’s side sit one place below them on goal difference.

    However, the Blues did get back to winning ways against Crystal Palace at the weekend thanks to Kai Havertz’s second-half winner. 

    At the halfway point of the season, the two giants are sitting in midtable and this game could have a huge impact on the trajectory of the remainder of their campaigns.

    Liverpool will remain without Virgil van Dijk through injury while Diogo Jota, Luis Diaz and Roberto Firmino continue their recovery. 

    Darwin Nunez will be battling to be fit for the weekend after missing the Reds’ defeat to Brighton last time out in the league. 

    New Chelsea signing Mykhailo Mudryk could make his first appearance in a Blues shirt after signing for £88million this week.
