Confirmed: Liverpool and Chelsea line-ups for the League Cup semi-final

Here are the sides for Liverpool v Chelsea in the League Cup this evening.

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

Subs: Ward, Enrique, Lambert, Manquillo, Lallana, Borini, Rossiter

Chelsea: Courtois; Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry (c), Filipe Luis; Matic, Mikel; Willian, Fabregas, Hazard; Diego Costa

Subs: Cech, Zouma, Azpilicueta, Ramires, Oscar, Remy, Drogba

Liverpool will be looking to make the most of their home advantage with Brendan Rodgers likely to be keen on his side stretching out an advantage ahead of the second leg at Stamford Bridge.

The Reds have been solid in this competition so far this season and are always difficult to get the better of in front of their own fans.

This is a real opportunity for any fringe or youth player included in Liverpool’s line up to step up and impress the boss ahead of further important matches over the coming weeks.

Jose Mourinho will be delighted with the way his team played last weekend and will be keen for his side to cash in on their momentum.

Chelsea have a good recent record at Anfield and that will give the team the confidence that they can secure a result and make the second leg slightly easier for themselves.
