Chelsea FC head up to Anfield to face Liverpool in the weekend’s biggest Premier League fixture riding a bit of a hot streak. Ever since Blues manager Antonio Conte switched his formation to a 3-5-2, implementing the wing backs, they have looked much more impressive, and extremely formidable.
Conte has hailed the change as being the catalyst for the uptick in form.
The Blues have won four in a row since their disaster at AS Roma in the UEFA Champions League group stages, but find themselves slight underdogs in this one.
Here’s the lineup prediction that we’re going with for the Blues in this one (3-5-2)
Alvaro Morata Eden Hazard
Marcos Alonso Cesc Fabgreas N’Golo Kante Tiemoue Bakayoko Cesar Azpilicueta
Gary Cahill Andreas Christensen Davide Zappacosta
