Mario Balotelli and Steven Gerrard have both been restored to Liverpool’s starting line-up for Saturday’s clash with Chelsea.

Enhanced odds: Get Liverpool to win or draw at 5/1 or Chelsea to win at 6/1!

The duo started the midweek Champions League defeat by Real Madrid on the bench but will both feature against the Blues.

Meanwhile, Ramires is back for Chelsea, and striker Diego Costa gets the nod to start up front for Jose Mourinho’s men.

Liverpool: Mignolet; Johnson, Skrtel, Lovren, Moreno: Can, Henderson, Gerrard; Coutinho, Sterling, Balotelli.
