Estonia's Ragnar Klavan

Liverpool and Chelsea meet in the International Champions Cup tonight.

Liverpool starting line-up: Karius, Randall, Lovren, Klavan, Moreno, Stewart, Ejaria, Grujic, Mane, Coutinho, Firmino.

Chelsea starting line-up: Begovic; Azpilicueta, Cahill, Terry (c), Aina; Fabregas, Matic; Wilian, Traore, Loftus-Cheek, Moses.

Liverpool and Chelsea get their International Champions Cup campaign off and running tonight as they face off in Pasadena, California.

Premier League rivals such as Manchester United, Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur have all played in the tournament so far, but now it's the turn of Jurgen Klopp and Antonio Conte.

Klopp has named a team of first-team stars mixed in with talented youngsters, as the highly rated Ovie Ejaria starts in midfield after an impressive pre-season.

There's a debut in defence for new signing Ragnar Klavan, whilst the Reds also boast a threatening front three of Sadio Mane, Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino.

The likes of James Milner, Jordan Henderson, Adam Lallana and Danny Ings are all on the bench, as is new signing Alex Manninger.

Meanwhile, Chelsea are deploying a 4-2-4 system under new manager Conte, with John Terry captaining the side, whilst Ola Aina is given a chance to impress in defence.

Cesc Fabregas and Nemanja Matic are Conte's midfield duo, with Willian and Victor Moses supplying Bertrand Traore and the shock inclusion, Ruben Loftus-Cheek - a midfielder by trade, but playing up front tonight.
