The midfielder missed the start of the season at Brighton due to suspension following his departure against Arsenal in last month’s FA Cup final.
With the Croatian midfield likely to start with Anne Gogo Conte, Jorgenho is likely to leave this man.
In defense, Lampard could consider bringing in Antonio Rudigar for Andres Christensen, as the German’s pace could pick up against Liverpool’s fast forward line.
In the attack, Lampard makes decisions around who leads the line.
Werner did well against Brighton, but Olivier Giroud is pushing to start and that could be an option as his physique could match Virgil Van Dijk.
The start of the Frenchman means the teams will deploy Werner to the left and give Kai Hartz a chance to play a role of 10 in his favor.
Christian Paulisic will be able to complete the attack by playing the right game after Mason Mount is injured.
Chelsea predict XI to face Liverpool (4-2-3-1): Capa; James, Rudigar, Zuma, Alonso; Kante, Kovasic; Mount, Hewartz, Werner; Giraud
