Your Chelsea Starting XI vs Liverpool

For our Premier League kickoff against Liverpool at Stamford Bridge, three summer acquisitions—Robert Sanchez, Axel Disasi, and Nicolas Jackson—have been included in the starting XI.

This match marks the inaugural competitive encounter under the stewardship of our new head coach, Mauricio Pochettino. Pochettino led us through an undefeated pre-season campaign in the United States.

Notably, there are four debutants gracing the starting lineup. Goalkeeper Sanchez, secured from Brighton, takes his place in the net, while the defensive quartet comprises of new arrival Axel Disasi, seasoned veteran Thiago Silva, and Academy graduate Levi Colwill, marking his senior debut.

Leading the side as club captain this week, Reece James assumes the role of right wing-back. The midfield trio consists of Conor Gallagher, Enzo Fernandez, and Carney Chukwuemeka, with Ben Chilwell operating as left wing-back.

Following a series of impressive showings in the pre-season, Nicolas Jackson is entrusted with his Chelsea debut this afternoon. He pairs up in the attack with Raheem Sterling.
