Chelsea return to the scene of one of their biggest wins last season as they take on Liverpool at Anfield this afternoon.
Of course for Steven Gerrard, the match will bring plenty of different emotions flooding back. It was his costly slip that allowed Chelsea to go on their way to victory in their key title showdown last term, which ultimately cost Brendan Rodgers' side the title last season.
Gerrard has been at the centre of attention leading up to this game for different reasons too; the Liverpool skipper was controversially rested for his side's Champions League showdown against Real Madrid in mid-week, along with the likes of Raheem Sterling and Jordan Henderson.
Rodgers was heavily criticised for making seven changes to his starting line-up at the Bernabeu. The Liverpool boss insisted his decision was made with the game against Chelsea in mind - so the pressure is on to get three points today.
- Mourinho ready to sell £25m-rated Chelsea star
- Liverpool in danger of receiving a thrashing from Chelsea
- Liverpool owners blamed for poor start to the season
For Chelsea, they are able to call upon the services of Diego Costa once more. The Spanish international has been struggling with injury in recent weeks but is fit to take part. Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho was unhappy with his team's efforts in their 1-1 draw with Maribor in the Champions League in mid-week, so it is unsurprising to see him make changes.
Liverpool starting line-up:
Mignolet; Johnson, Skrtel, Lovren, Moreno; Henderson, Can, Gerrard; Sterling, Coutinho, Balotelli
Jones, Toure, Lucas, Allen, Lallana, Borini, Lambert
Chelsea starting line-up:
Courtois, Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta, Matic, Fàbregas, Ramires, Oscar, Hazard, Costa
Cech, Luis, Drogba, Zouma, Mikel, Remy, Willian
Chelsea of course remain unbeaten this season having won eight and drawn two of their games in the Premier League, while Liverpool are down in seventh place. The Blues have the upperhand in recent meetings, and haven't lost to the Reds in the league since their 4-1 defeat back in 2012.
