‘Lost already!’ – Chelsea fans make Hudson-Odoi point over Lampard’s lineup to face Liverpool


Chelsea’s starting XI to take on reigning champions Liverpool has been confirmed.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek drops out of the team that won 3-1 away to Brighton and Hove Albion on Monday night, with Mateo Kovacic getting the start after serving a suspension last time out.

Kai Havertz and Mason Mount look likely to play behind Timo Werner in a 4-3-2-1, with Jorginho and N’Golo Kante joining Kovacic in midfield.

The back five remains the same from the win at Brighton, with goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga retaining his place.

Chelsea fans have been reacting to the presence of Kepa, and indeed the absence of Callum Hudson-Odoi, who they feel should be starting.

Here’s what they have had to say on Twitter.

The full team is as follows:

Chelsea: Kepa Arrizabalaga; Reece James, Andreas Christensen, Kurt Zouma, Marcos Alonso; N’Golo Kante. Jorginho, Mateo Kovacic; Kai Havertz, Mason Mount; Timo Werner.

Subs: Willy Caballero, Cesar Azpilicueta, Fikayo Tomori, Ross Barkley, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Tammy Abraham, Olivier Giroud.
