Sadio Mane has been named on the Liverpool bench for tonight's must-win match against Chelsea at Anfield.

Jurgen Klopp's Reds go into the crunch clash on the back of three consecutive home defeats and were so desperate to get Mane back from the African Nations Cup that they sent a private jet to pick him up.

That plan met complications of it's own but Mane is back on Merseyside and named among the Liverpool subs.

Daniel Stfurridge is also among the Liverpool substitutes.

Liverpool (v Chelsea): Mignolet; Clyne, Lovren, Matip, Milner; Henderson, Can; Wijnaldum, Lallana, Coutinho; Firmino.

Chelsea: Courtois; Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Cahill (c); Moses, Kante, Matic, Alonso; Willian, Diego Costa, Hazard.
