    Liverpool 0-0 Chelsea

    Jordan Henderson lifts it in from the right and Sadio Mane attempts an audacious overhead kick.

    He connects well, really well in fact, but it hits Andreas Christensen. It looked like it was his arm but he’s about an inch away from the ball so he couldn’t do anything about it.

    The resulting corner is headed back into the six yard box by Joel Matip and Mane is inches away from getting a toe on it.

  2. Reds to press Zouma?

    This is the test for Kurt Zouma now. When he’s been asked to play out from the back do Liverpool let him have the ball there or close him down?

    Liverpool 0-0 Chelsea

    Olivier Giroud flicks the ball through and it hits Virgil van Dijk’s arm. The Frenchman is almost in a few seconds later but again, Joel Matip mops up well.

  4. Post update

    Liverpool 0-0 Chelsea

    Sadio Mane has started through the middle of Liverpool’s front three, as Mohamed Salah tries to find him with a ball from the right.

    Chelsea then break through Christian Pulisic on the left but Joel Matip comes across to make the tackle.

  10. ‘A teenager’s mistake’

    If Jurgen Klopp wants to put a high press on, he’ll be getting straight at Kurt Zouma when he’s got the ball at his feet because that’s not his strength. He made a basic mistake at the weekend, giving that sort of penalty away. It’s a mistake a teenager makes. He did play well at Everton but this is a step up.

  11. ‘Giroud will be a threat’

    Liverpool v Chelsea (20:00 BST)


    Chelsea boss Frank Lampard:“This is for the team and the club. We have to have a realisation of what this cup means to the club. We know it and we are ready.”

    On Olivier Giroud starting:“We have strikers to pick from. He is a threat in the box and I had to make some changes because we have a lot of games in a short space of time.”

  13. ‘We signed him for a reason’

    Liverpool v Chelsea (20:00 BST)


    Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, speaking to BT Sport:“It is a strong team you
    have to consider all the different circumstances and all the things that can
    happen the game.”

    On Adrian starting:“We don’t have to think about it. We signed him, it was for a
    reason. He didn’t have a pre-season like other goalkeepers had.”

  14. thumped 4-0 by Manchester United at Old Trafford but Lampard says he learned “lessons” from the defeat.

    “I’m optimistic because I believe in the players. In terms of the defeat, I think you always learn as a manager.

    “The clear lesson for everyone was if you make defensive errors against good teams it will cost you.

    “The second message to the players was they did so many good things in the game, in terms of how we played – if you take out the mistakes for the goals there were lots of good things.”

  • ‘I’ve not seen Zouma develop’

    Liverpool v Chelsea (20:00 BST)

    Andy Townsend

    Ex-Chelsea midfielder on BBC Radio 5 live

    I’ve never really seen Kurt Zouma develop that much, wherever he’s been. His defending’s a bit naive for someone who’s been around long enough to have picked it up by now.
