Liverpool face champions Manchester City, who are now in second, on Sunday, presenting the opportunity for Chelsea and Leicester City - who are third - to make up ground on the top two.

The Blues warmed up for the game with a dramatic 4-4 draw with Ajax in the Champions League that saw the Dutch giants have two players sent off as Chelsea came from 4-1 down to salvage a valuable point.

Emerson Palmeiri is pushing for a recall at left-back while N'Golo Kante is fit to replace Jorginho in the middle of the park with the Italian serving a one-match ban after accumulating five bookings this season. Whether he will play or not though, is still open to speculation.

Antonio Rudiger has been ruled out for at least another three weeks due to an on-going groin injury while Ruben Loftus-Cheek remains on the sidelines with a serious Achilles problem.

"Lampard has done a very good job, there's no question about that - the club has done a good job in encouraging the manager and his staff to blood some of the players that had previously been out on loan", the 72-year-old said. However, he will undergo fitness tests to determine how many minutes will he be able to play.

"I am not sure on that one, he won't be in our squad".

"With Mason, he's in the squad, and we're giving him another 24 hours".

"Then we'll have to see where the match fitness comes in, because it's a long time Toni's been out now". Hopefully in three weeks' time we will know more.
