Premier League Preview: Liverpool v Chelsea

N'Golo Kante and James Milner battle for possession in midfield

Liverpool midfielder James Milner is expected to be fit to return to the squad for the final home match of the season against Chelsea.

The 34-year-old missed the last two games - a draw with Burnley and defeat to Arsenal - with a minor muscle problem.

With a week's rest and a three-year unbeaten home league record to preserve manager Jurgen Klopp is likely to field his strongest available line-up, with only Joel Matip (foot) and Jordan Henderson (knee) ruled out.

N'Golo Kante will miss Chelsea's trip to Anfield.

The France midfielder remains sidelined with a hamstring problem and will not be available to face the Reds.

Kante suffered his latest hamstring issue in the 3-0 win over Watford on July 4 and the Anfield trip will be the fifth match he has missed.

Provisional Liverpool squad: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Van Dijk, Gomez, Robertson, Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Keita, Salah, Firmino, Mane, Adrian, Williams, Lovren, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Milner, Minamino, Origi, Elliott, Jones, Shaqiri.

Provisional Chelsea squad: Kepa, Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Zouma, Alonso, Jorginho, Kovacic, Mount, Willian, Pulisic, Giroud, Caballero, James, Christensen, Tomori, Emerson, Loftus-Cheek, Barkley, Hudson-Odoi, Pedro, Abraham.
