Chelsea will feel hard done by after their last Premier League match where they drew 2-2 away to Swansea.

Gary Cahill looked to have been fouled on the way to Swansea's second goal and despite Diego Costa's late equaliser, Antonio Conte's side could only salvage a point.

The Blues will be focused on getting back to winning ways this Friday night. Chelsea will also welcome back Davis Luiz into the side, with John Terry out with an ankle injury.

As for Liverpool, they come into the game after a 4-1 thrashing of league champions Leicester. Jurgen Klopp will want his side to continue this form as they travel to Stamford Bridge.

It’s a big game for…

Daniel Sturridge: The Liverpool striker was once a Chelsea player but it did not work out for him at Stamford Bridge. He was eventually sold to Liverpool after a loan spell at Bolton Wanderers.

Best stat…

Liverpool have only beaten Chelsea once in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge since 2011.

Former Chelsea player, Glen Johnson,  scored the winner in the 87th minute to give Liverpool a 2-1 victory.

Remember when...

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes Chelsea striker Diego Costa is back to his world-class best.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes Chelsea striker Diego Costa is back to his world-class best.

In the 2002/03 season, when Claudio Ranieri's Chelsea came from one goal behind to beat Liverpool 2-1 at Stamford Bridge and earn a precious Champions League spot.

Player to watch…

Diego Costa: The Spanish international scored two goals in Chelsea's 2-2 draw on the weekend, including a spectacular overhead kick.

He has a total of four goals from four Premier League games for Chelsea this season, as well as two for Spain, and looks like he could be back to his best for the Blues.

Chelsea team news

David Luiz will start for Chelsea in place of captain John Terry when they host Liverpool on Friday night.

Defender Terry suffered an ankle injury during the 2-2 draw with Swansea on Sunday and was ruled out for around 10 days.

Boss Antonio Conte confirmed Luiz would make his first appearance for Chelsea since his £34million deadline-day switch from Paris St Germain in Terry's absence.

Provisional squad: Courtois, Ivanovic, Cahill, Luiz, Azpilicueta, Kante, Alonso, Matic, Fabregas, Willian, Oscar, Hazard, Costa, Begovic, Batshuayi, Pedro, Loftus-Cheek, Moses, Aina.

Liverpool team news

Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren is expected to return to the starting line-up to face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge after an eye injury.

The Croatia centre-back missed Saturday's 4-1 win over Leicester after sustaining a badly-bruised eye in training and midfielder Lucas Leiva had to deputise.

Midfielder Emre Can is back in training after an ankle problem but is not yet match fit, while manager Jurgen Klopp has to decide whether to bring back Philippe Coutinho after he was rested following a long trip back from international duty with Brazil.

Provisional squad: Mignolet, Clyne, Lovren, Matip, Milner, Lallana, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Mane, Firmino, Coutinho, Karius, Klavan, Moreno, Lucas, Stewart, Grujic, Origi, Sturridge, Ings.
