Chelsea are sweating on Mateo Kovacic and Hakim Ziyech after the pair went off injured in Tuesday’s Champions League win over Lille. Callum Hudson-Odoi faces a late fitness test, Reece James is unlikely to be considered having just returned to full training after nearly two months out, while Ben Chilwell is ruled out for the rest of the season.

Liverpool forward Diogo Jota is a doubt having missed the last two Premier League fixtures due to an ankle injury sustained in the Champions League win at Inter Milan. Roberto Firmino is also in a race against time to prove his fitness after being sidelined by a muscle injury.
