Liverpool U23 vs Leicester U23
Hours before the big clash at Anfield, Liverpool’s under-23s took on their counterparts from Leicester in the Premier League 2.
In a boost for the Reds, both Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Joe Gomez were named in the starting XI.
Both Oxlade-Chamberlain and Gomez are nearing returns to the Liverpool first team after lengthy injuries.
The expectation is that the Ox and Gomez will both feature in the Premier League before the end of the campaign.
Gomez could slot in at either centre-half or right-back.
Oxlade-Chamberlain will be looking for an opportunity to shine in Jurgen Klopp’s midfield.
Liverpool U23 line up
Liverpool U23s: George, Gomez, Lewis, Hoever, Johnston, Coyle, Camacho, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Brewster, Woodburn, Jones.
Substitutes: Christie-Davies, Atherton, Masterson, McAuley, Gallacher.
Jose Mourinho on Liverpool vs Chelsea
Jose Mourinho has previewed Sunday’s Liverpool vs Chelsea clash for Russia Today:
Liverpool-Chelsea in the Premier League is a big one, for many reasons.
Liverpool, they have to win every match between now and the end of the season, and wait for Man City to lose a couple of points.
It’s a must-win for Liverpool. At the same time Chelsea need points to finish top four.
Manchester United is there, Spurs is there, Arsenal, despite their last defeat, are also there.
Chelsea needs points. It’s a must-win for both. And to add something more to the game, the last time Liverpool were almost winning the title it was Chelsea who spoiled the celebration at Anfield.
