Chelsea team news: Saltor may make four changes vs Liverpool as he takes over from Potter

Chelsea are set to make wholesale changes to their starting lineup for their upcoming clash against Liverpool, with new manager Bruno Saltor taking over from Graham Potter.

The Blues have been struggling in recent weeks, losing their last four Premier League games and falling out of the top four. With the pressure mounting, Saltor has taken the reins and is expected to make a number of changes to the team.

Saltor is likely to drop several of Potter's regular starters, with the likes of Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Olivier Giroud and Antonio Rudiger all likely to be benched.

In their place, Saltor is expected to bring in a number of younger players, with the likes of Reece James, Mason Mount and Callum Hudson-Odoi all set to come into the side.

In defence, Andreas Christensen is likely to come in for Rudiger, while Cesar Azpilicueta is expected to retain his place at left-back. Midfielders Jorginho, N'Golo Kante and Mateo Kovacic are likely to keep their places, while Willian and Pedro are expected to be the starting wingers.

Up front, Tammy Abraham is expected to be given the nod ahead of Giroud, with Eden Hazard and Hudson-Odoi flanking him as Chelsea look to get back to winning ways.

It remains to be seen whether Saltor's changes will have the desired effect, but Chelsea fans will be hoping that the new manager can get his team back on track and into the top four.
