Liverpool's manager Jürgen Klopp issues instructions to captain Jordan Henderson during the FA Premier League match between Liverpool FC and Southampton FC at Anfield

Chelsea have received an unlikely boost ahead of their Premier League showdown against Liverpool as Reds' defender Virgil Van Dijk is struggling to be fit in time for tomorrow's match.

"Me and Alisson work together on a good basis, our relationship has been good ever since we came together and then we've got a few younger boys who are pushing us forward as well".

Here are three key battles that could decide the outcome at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Signed in the summer from Stoke City for a paltry £13m, the Swiss midfielder has made a bright start to life on Merseyside.

Kante came off the bench with his side trailing 1-0, so imagine his heartbreak when Emerson equalised... and then his ecstasy when Hazard pops up with the victor five minutes later. "The whole bunch of players was in one direction where we shot the ball then actually, and if he can send Mo in a one-on-one situation in the last situation of the game it would have been not too bad".

"I spoke with N'Golo on the bench and he told me he didn't want to take a penalty, so the only solution was to score", he told Sky Sports. "It was just a tactical thing, like something off the free-kick we should do better". Have your say in the comments section below.

Having won the league the previous season, Jose Mourinho's men made a flying start to their defence with nine straight wins, scoring 23 goals in the process and conceding only three times.

"I can easily respect that, but no player is not defendable".

It's hard but we are hard to defend. So far, we played Tottenham, PSG, Southampton and Chelsea so we are half-way through, and so far we did really well. "All competitions we are in, we want to win", he added.

He said: "How do we defend Jorginho?" If you give Sadio Mane the ball in the wrong space then you can not get him anymore as an opponent. "But we have to make sure we close the right spaces and if we have a challenge we should try to win it a bit more than we did in that situation".

Naby Keita put in a better performance at Anfield but I still think he'll drop out with Jordan Henderson and Georginio Wijnaldum recalled to the starting eleven alongside James Milner.
