Predicted Liverpool and Chelsea line-ups for League Cup semi-final: Changes all round

Here are the possible sides for the League Cup clash between Liverpool and Chelsea.

Liverpool and Chelsea reignite their rivalry in cup competitions this week when they meet for the first leg of the League Cup semi-final at Anfield.

It’s a huge game for both sides because a good performance could see either take one step into the final at Wembley and the first chance to win some silverware this season.

It will be interesting to see whether Brendan Rodgers and Jose Mourinho go all out for the victory or whether they choose to take a more cautious approach and rotate to keep their squad fresh.

It will also be interesting to see how Mourinho sets up his Chelsea side with Liverpool likely to be going all out to take an advantage back to Stamford Bridge for the second game.

It’ a chance for both sides to temporarily forget about the pressures of the Premier League.

Here are the possible teams Rodgers and Mourinho could go with.

Liverpool: Mignolet, Can, Skrtel, Sakho, Moreno, Markovic, Henderson, Lucas, Coutinho, Sterling, Borini

Chelsea: Cech, Ivanovic, Cahill, Zouma, Luis, Schurrle, Matic, Mikel, Fabregas, Hazard, Remy
