A clash of titans is in store on the second gameweek of the Premier League 2020-21 season as Chelsea play host to defending champions Liverpool at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

The Reds were made to work hard for the three points against newly promoted Leeds United in their opening game, with Mohamed Salah hitting a hat-trick in their 4-3 triumph at Anfield.

Jurgen Klopp's side will have to step up a gear again on Sunday as they lock horns with Frank Lampard's Blues, who have strengthened considerably with a number of forays into the transfer market.

The hosts, who beat Brighton 3-1 in their opening game, have designs on the league title and they can issue a signal of intent by coming out on top against last season's standard bearers.

Timo Werner is expected to be fit for the game despite suffering a knock to his leg in the Blues' victory against Brighton.

Mateo Kovacic should be available for selection after serving a suspension, but Christian Pulisic is still working his way back from injury and unlikely to feature.

New signings Ben Chilwell, Hakim Ziyech and Thiago Silva will be closer to making the matchday squad, but their involvement will depend on how close to full fitness they are.

Possible Chelsea starting XI:  Kepa; James, Christensen, Zouma, Alonso; Jorginho, Kante, Loftus-Cheek, Havertz, Mount; Werner.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is out of the game with a knee injury, but new signing Kostas Tsimikas will be pushing for a place in the matchday squad.

Switzerland international Xherdan Shaqiri was not part of the matchday 18 on the opening weekend as he battles fitness concerns, but will be aiming for a place in the squad on Sunday.

Captain Jordan Henderson is fully fit having featured for over an hour against Leeds, so should lead the Reds out at Stamford Bridge again.

Thiago Alcantara will not make his debut following his £20 million move from Bayern Munich, with the midfielder set to take part in the Premier League match next weekend against Arsenal.
