Chelsea Team News
Under the management of Antonio Conte, Chelsea is looking much better after a pretty long time, and that is why they have upraised their position to the 2nd following a 2-2 draw against Swansea City at Liberty Stadium. Chelsea’s current statistics seems impressive since they haven’t lost any match in this season. Although they brought against Swansea City, the defeat mark has not been gained by them.
The Spanish striker, Costa is on fire, and his two goals help Blues to get the score levelled at Liberty Stadium. Conte is managing Chelsea tactically, and his style of gameplay seems more than impressive for a team like Chelsea. However, the bad news is the skipper, John Terry, won’t be available against Liverpool at Stamford Bridge because of having an ankle injury. That implies, Ivanovic, Azpilicueta, and Cahill need to manage the defense lineup with another defender.
However, it seems Conte will continue with the 4-1-4-1 formation since that structure is giving him a positive result. Costa is coming back to the position, but Oscar needs to be more careful since he missed some chances in the last match against Swansea City. On the other hand, the Frenchman, Kante, is being utilized by Conte, which will certainly help them to grow.

Courtois; Ivanovic, Cahill, David Luiz, Azpilicueta; Kante; Willian, Oscar, Matic, Hazard; Costa.
