Confirmed Teams: Chelsea vs Liverpool | Premier League
Chelsea face Liverpool in the Premier League and the confirmed team news is in from Stamford Bridge.
The hosts welcome Jurgen Klopp’s side to the capital on Tuesday night, with Bruno Saltor taking charge of Chelsea for the first time on an interim following the sacking of Graham Potter on Sunday.
“What can I say? The elephant in the room is probably why I am still sitting here, in this crazy world! Last man standing!” responded Klopp, when asked about Potter and Brendan Rodgers’ departures.
“I respect them a lot, I like them both. Fantastic managers still, but things can go the wrong way. We all accept that in the football business. It’s a strange week, (Antonio) Conte, (Julian) Nagelsmann, and now these two.”

Saltor is now in charge as Chelsea look to get back to winning ways after the 2-0 defeat to Aston Villa on Saturday, which proved to be the end of the road for Potter in west London.
The Spaniard has picked his first ever starting XI and hopes his players will see the Liverpool game as an opportunity to represent Chelsea in the best way possible.
Bruno said: “We are representing Chelsea. A club with an amazing history, it is about winning, it is about dominating and what we need to do is prepare for the game. Preparation helps a lot for performance and that is what the players need to focus on.”
