All eyes will be on Fernando Torres as the Spaniard takes on his former club once more having faced the Reds in his very first game for Chelsea after completing his British record £50 million switch from Anfield nine months ago.
Torres has stuttered in front of goal of late having look to have finally found his form at Chelsea before his red card against Swansea stopped him dead in his tracks, and now the pressure will be on the former Atletico Madrid man once more to get Chelsea’s title challenge back on track.
He won’t be the only target of vitriol for the travelling Liverpool support, with former Red Raul Meireles likely to receive his fair share of jeers having followed in Torres’s footsteps over the summer.
Stephen Gerrard will miss the trip as he continues his prolonged spell on the sidelines with an ankle infection, although the Liverpool skipper is expected to be back playing later this month.
There was some better news for Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish, who will be able to call upon the services of talismanic defender Jamie Carragher, who has shaken off a calf complaint.
Michael Essien remains in the treatment room as he continues along the long road back from a knee injury, but Didier Drogba is available for selection once more to offer Torres some competition for a starting place having used his three game suspension for being sent off against QPR wisely to undergo minor arm surgery.
Luis Suarez is a minor worry for Dalglish having been rested for Uruguay’s mid-week win over Italy with a back problem, with the forward undergoing a late fitness test ahead of the game.
