Thiago Alcantara is named among the substitutes for Liverpool’s Premier League clash with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge today.

The midfielder, who completed a transfer from Bayern Munich on Friday, makes the Reds’ matchday squad for the first time after signing a long-term deal, while Kostas Tsimikas is also on the bench.

However, Jürgen Klopp’s side are without Joe Gomez (minor knock) and Joel Matip (minor muscle issue), so Fabinho lines up alongside Virgil van Dijk in the centre of defence.

Liverpool: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho, Van Dijk, Robertson, Wijnaldum, Henderson, Keita, Mane, Salah, Firmino.

Subs: Adrian, Thiago, Milner, Jones, Minamino, Tsimikas, Origi.
