Alisson to return in goal: Predicted Liverpool line-up to face Chelsea in Premier League



Alisson Liverpool

Liverpool must be looking to bounce back from their first defeat of the season handed out by Chelsea in the Carabao Cup.

A late goal from Eden Hazard gave the Blues a 2-1 win at Anfield but the Reds made a number of changes to their regular starting XI.

Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, Georginio Wijnaldum, Alisson, Virgil van Dijk, Andy Robertson and Joe Gomez did not start the clash. Hence, Jurgen Klopp must push the team to deliver a brilliant response in our next game which is against the Blues on Saturday.

The Reds have a two-point lead at the top of the table and here is our predicted line-up for the huge clash.

Predicted Liverpool XI

Formation: 4-3-3

Manager: Jurgen Klopp

Alisson (GK)

The Brazilian didn’t play against the Blues on Wednesday and should return to the starting XI, looking to keep a fifth clean sheet.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (RB)

Another player rested for the weekend clash, Trent has to be at his best to keep the Chelsea attack quiet.

Virgil van Dijk (CB)

It will be touch and go for Van Dijk to return from his rib injury. If we want to win at the Bridge, the Dutch defender has to play.

Joe Gomez (CB)

Gomez was also rested for the clash against the Blues but he should be looking to dominate Chelsea’s attackers on Saturday.

Andy Robertson (LB)

Alberto Moreno struggled to keep Hazard tied up and Robertson will have his hands full with the Belgian in such great form.

Georginio Wijnaldum (CM)

Possibly our best midfielder this season, Wijnaldum didn’t play against Chelsea but has to start against the Blues on Saturday.

Jordan Henderson (CM)

Hendo was given a few minutes on the pitch in the 2-1 loss on Wednesday but our captain should start on Saturday, as we aim to make it seven Premier League wins in a row.

James Milner (CM)

It was a bit of a surprise seeing Milner start the Carabao Cup game but the Englishman was replaced after 60 minutes of the game, meaning he should retain his spot.

Mohamed Salah (RW)

Salah was a late sub in the game against Chelsea and our star winger has to start in the Premier League clash this weekend.

Liverpool Firmino

Roberto Firmino (ST)

The Brazilian came on as a substitute but should be in the starting line-up to face the Blues on Saturday.

Sadio Mane (LW)

Mane did start the Carabao Cup game but couldn’t get on the scoreboard. The Senegal star was replaced with 20 minutes to go and should start at Stamford Bridge.

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.

The report adds it would be difficult for Insigne to switch clubs in the winter window and we would have to wait till the summer before we make a bid for the 27-year-old.

Joe Gomez

Joe Gomez put up another incredible perforce during the international break. The Liverpool youngster is a starter alongside Virgil van Dijk for the club and did a brilliant job in England’s 3-2 win over Spain.

The 21-year-old has started nine games for us in all competitions and Liverpool have only conceded three goals from eight Premier League games.

Gomez could grow even better with more games this season but the youngster was celebrating the England performance and put up an image of the team.

The Englishman should be in-line to start our game against Huddersfield at the weekend, and a number of fans showered praise on the 21-year-old for his 90 minutes against the Spanish.

Liverpool handed triple injury boost ahead of Huddersfield clash



Virgil van Dijk

Liverpool have been handed a triple boost ahead of their game against Huddersfield on Saturday. The Mirror reports that Virgil van Dijk, James Milner and Mohamed Salah are certain of being fit for the Premier League game.

Milner had injured his hamstring in the 0-0 draw against Manchester City and was expected to be out of action until December, as per the report.

However, the Englishman has made a remarkable recovery, and the report adds that Liverpool’s medics have given him the all-clear to make a comeback.

Milner has to take part in full training on Thursday to have a chance of making it to the team for the Huddersfield game.

Salah and Van Dijk also had injuries during the international break. However, the Egyptian only has a slight muscle strain while the Dutch defender has been dealing with a rib injury that requires pain-killers, as per the report.

James Milner of Liverpool

James Milner

The forward is returning to Liverpool for further treatment and should participate in full training before Thursday, according to the Mirror.

Ronald Koeman shed light on Van Dijk’s problem and was quoted by the Mirror as saying:

“He spoke to the manager. The medical staff of the Dutch national team spoke to the medical staff of Liverpool and made the decision that he was playing only the Germany game and then after back to Liverpool.

“He is ready to play next weekend.”
