Recall that Frank Lampard’s side saw off Brighton 3-1 earlier this week thanks to goals from Jorginho, Reece James and Kurt Zouma.
This weekend Sunday’s clash with the Reds is set to be an altogether different challenge, however, and will provide the Blues with a marker for where they are at compared with the other top clubs.
Chelsea are set to be boosted by the return of a number of key players for the game, including summer signings Ben Chilwell and Thiago Silva.
So what is the latest injury news ahead of the clash against Jurgen Klopp’s side this weekend?
Summer signing Werner is expected to start despite concern he had picked up an injury.
The 24-year-old was seen with an ice pack strapped to his right leg, sparking some concern whether he had picked up an injury issue.
However, he declared himself ready to take on the Reds, saying: “Of course. In games like this, you’re always fit.”
The summer arrival from Leicester City is back in training having recovered from a heel injury.
The 23-year-old joined the Blues with the injury but after doing some individual work at Cobham, he is now nearing full fitness.
It means Chilwell is in line to make his Chelsea debut this Sunday.
The 27-year-old has been ruled out of the Liverpool game due to a knee injury he picked up in the pre-season game with Brighton.
He subsequently missed the league opener against the Seagulls.
Ziyech is expected to be back in the coming weeks.
The American winger is likely to again miss out on first-team involvement this weekend.
Pulisic had been expected to play against Brighton but was left out of the squad completely.
Lampard confirmed it would have been ‘a big ask’ for him to play against the Seagulls and it’s unlikely the boss will risk him against Liverpool.
The former Paris Saint-Germain captain is, like Chilwell, in line for his first appearance in a Chelsea shirt.
The centre-back has been in training with the first-team squad over the past couple of days and should feature against the champions.
Silva should be a valuable addition to the backline as he hopes to replicate his success in France over the next couple of seasons with Chelsea.
Young Scottish midfielder Gilmour remains a long-term absentee from the senior squad.
It’s down to a knee operation he had to undergo earlier this summer following the win over Crystal Palace towards the end of last season.
At the time, boss Frank Lampard said: “His attitude will get him back as quick as he can, his character is fantastic, particularly with his age.
“The personality he has shown to get himself into the first team, I’m very sure he will show the same character in doing everything right with his rehab.”
Gilmour is not expected back until October at the earliest.
