Chelsea host Liverpool tonight in the Premier League as they look to keep their unbeaten run intact.

Liverpool come into tonights encounter in high spirits after defeating last seasons Premier League champions by a 4-1 scoreline last weekend.

The Reds have suffered a blow going into the game following confirmation from Klopp that Emre Can will not play according to the Independent.

“Emre is not injured any more, which is good, but now he needs to train and that’s how it is. He had a difficult preseason with coming back later than most of the other players then a little injury here and a little problem there,” Klopp was quoted by ESPN as saying in the lead up to the game.

Liverpool will also be without the in-form Roberto Firmino due to a groin strain.

However, the German tactician has restored Dejan Lovren to the starting eleven after the Croatia international recovered from an eye injury.

David Luiz will make his second debut for Chelsea in place of an injured John Terry.
