Fabinho and Mignolet to start: Predicted Liverpool line-up against Chelsea in Carabao Cup

Published

on

Liverpool face Chelsea back-to-back with our first clash coming in the third round of the Carabao Cup.

The Reds have won all their games this season and looked comfortable against Southampton on Saturday.

The game against Chelsea on Saturday could be a real test for our title ambitions but this league cup clash should see both teams resting their players.

Jurgen Klopp hasn’t made a lot of changes in a winning formula so far but we should see a number of squad players making appearances against the Blues on Wednesday.

Liverpool need to keep the momentum going and here is out predicted line-up against the Blues.

Predicted Liverpool XI

Formation: 4-3-3

Manager: Jurgen Klopp

Simon Mignolet (GK)

The Belgian hasn’t played a single game for us so far but this will be a chance for the former Sunderland keeper to star between the sticks.

Nathaniel Clyne (RB)

Trent Alexander-Arnold has kept Nathaniel Clyne out of the starting XI but the former Saint should get a start at Anfield on Wednesday.

Joel Matip (CB)

The central-defender scored in the win over Southampton and should continue as we must rest Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk.

Nathaniel Phillips (CB)

Phillips impressed during pre-season and the youngster should receive a start in this clash against the Blues.

Alberto Moreno (LB)

Andy Robertson has been excellent throughout the season but the Scot needs rest and Alberto Moreno should start on Wednesday.

Jordan Henderson (CM)

Henderson was excellent in the win over the Saints and his passing will be crucial in the game against Chelsea.

Fabinho Liverpool

Fabinho (CM)

The Brazilian hasn’t started a game for us this season but the clash against the Blues is the perfect opportunity to get some minutes under the belt.

Naby Keita (CM)

The Guinean got 20 minutes against the Saints but should start against Chelsea on Wednesday.

Xherdan Shaqiri (RW)

Shaqiri was the best player against Southampton but only got 45 minutes, meaning he should start on the wing for the Reds on Wednesday.

Daniel Sturridge (ST)

Sturridge got a goal in the win over PSG but didn’t start against Southampton. The Englishman would be facing his former side and must do a great job.

Dominic Solanke (LW)

Solanke hasn’t played any football this season but could get a run out as Klopp must save the likes of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.

“It’s gone great”, “Another one” – Some Liverpool fans curse luck with star player picking up injury

on

Sadio Mane

Liverpool forward Sadio Mane has sustained a broken thumb, according to reports (h/t Liverpool Echo).

The star was with the national side when the injury occurred during training, and the Liverpool Echo claims Mane would be assessed by the club once he returns to Melwood.

This is another injury that Jurgen Klopp has to deal with from the international break. Virgil van Dijk is still suffering from a rib problem while Mohamed Salah picked up a minor problem for Egypt.

The duo are expected to continue their treatment at Anfield, as per the report.

The 26-year-old Mane has four goals to his name this season, and it will be interesting to see if he plays against Huddersfield at the weekend. Liverpool are tied at the top of the table with Chelsea and Manchester City on 20 points.

Some Liverpool fans were cursing the international break for the number of injuries we picked up while a few believed this was good as Mane needed a rest.

Liverpool interested in signing 27-year-old superstar from Napoli

Lorenzo Insigne

Liverpool are interested in signing Napoli superstar Lorenzo Insigne, according to Rai Sport (h/t Metro).

The Italian scored a late winner for the Serie A club in our Champions League loss a couple of weeks ago. The report adds that Chelsea are keeping an eye on the 27-year-old too and would rival the Reds for any bid on the Italian.

The attacker is known to Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri during their time at Napoli. The report adds that any team looking to sign Insigne up would have to stump a huge fee since the player has four years left on his current deal.

The attacker has seven goals and an assist in all competitions for the Serie A side, so far, and helped them to second place in the league last season.

The report adds that Klopp wants more firepower for the Reds and Insigne could be the perfect fit at Anfield.

Liverpool have Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane as quality wingers and added Xherdan Shaqiri in the summer. However, signing Insigne could make our attack one of the best in the world.
