Chelsea face Liverpool at Stamford Bridge in just under an hour, and the teams are in!
In Mauricio Pochettino’s first starting XI for Chelsea, and surprisingly so, it looks like he has gone with a 3-5-2. Robert Sanchez makes his Chelsea debut after signing from Brighton this summer. He starts in goal and is supported by a back three of Axel Disasi, Thiago Silva and Levi Colwill.
Reece James takes on the role of club captain and lines up as a right wing-back, while Ben Chilwell occupies the left wing-back position.
The midfield trio consists of Carney Chukwuemeka, Conor Gallagher, and Enzo Fernandez. Upfront, Raheem Sterling partners with new signing Nicolas Jackson.
It is exciting to see how this lineup performs in the season opener against Liverpool.
Here are the full team line-ups for Chelsea vs Liverpool (kick off at 16:30 pm GMT)
