15.00 Afternoon liveblog fans.
If you feel like this is 443rd time these teams have played one another in the
last 10 years you are not far wrong.
It's actually merely the 274th, but that's still enough for it to be a fixture
that holds few surprises and plenty of examples of unexciting games.
These are times of transition for both clubs though, with Chelsea managing the
renewal process far better than their practically strikerless foes from
The home side are overwhelming favourites today, but drew disappointingly with
Swansea last time out.
Liverpool will want a statement-of-intent result but would probably settle for
a credible point, given that this season already has the look of one to
write off before the proper rebuilding starts next summer.
I'm somewhat occupied with Manchester
City v Spurs on the other side at the moment, but will pop back here
to give you the teams when they arrive.
In the meantime gere's a lovely preview:
Sunday, November 11
Kick-off: 16.00 GMT
TV: Live, Sky Sports 1, Highlights BBC ONE Match of the Day2.
Chelsea (Possible, 4-2-3-1): Cech; Ivanovic, Terry, Cahill, Bertrand;
Ramires, Mikel; Mata, Oscar, Hazard; Torres.

Liverpool (Possible, 4-3-3): Jones; Wisdom, Skrtel, Agger, Johnson;

Test: Reina (hamstring).
Referee: Howard Webb. Matches: 6, R1 Y26.
Ashley Cole will once again be missing for Chelsea in Sunday's Premier League
game against Liverpool.
England left-back Cole sat out Wednesday's Champions League win over Shakhtar
Donetsk with a hamstring injury and manager Roberto Di Matteo hopes he can
return for next weekend's trip to West Brom.
John Terry will be pushing for a start on Sunday after he was surprisingly
left on the bench in midweek, while Frank Lampard is still out.
Meanwhile, England full-back Glen Johnson is set to return for Liverpool for
the Premier League trip to his former club after a hamstring injury.
Goalkeeper Jose Reina is also making good progress in his recovery from a
similar problem and is not yet ruled out, although the following week's
clash with Wigan may be more realistic for the Spaniard.
Manager Brendan Rodgers is set to restore most of his first-choice line-up
after resting a number of stars for Thursday's Europa League clash against
Anzhi Makhachkala in Moscow.
There is a certain irony to the fact that Fernando Torres, former Liverpool
hero and sold in 2010 for £50 million, is perhaps now the one Chelsea player
who would not get into his old team.
Both clubs are attempting this season to play a more expansive style of
football but, although Liverpool have the outstanding striker in Luis
Suárez, Chelsea's overall strength in depth should be too much.
Betting: Home 17-20, Away 5-2, Draw 12-5.
Stat of the game: Liverpool need one more stalemate for 100 draws in
the Premier League. This is their 783rd game in the competition.
Jeremy Wilson's prediction: Chelsea 3 Liverpool 1.
