Fernando Torres starts for Chelsea as he makes his debut against his former side Liverpool at Stamford Bridge this afternoon (4pm kick off).

His replacement at Liverpool Luis Suarez is named on the bench as Kenny Dalglish sticks with Dirk Kuyt up front.

Chelsea name Torres up front alongside Nicolas Anelka and Didier Drogba.

Jamie Carragher returns for Liverpool for his first appearance since late November, Dalglish names the centre back alongside Martin Skrtel and Daniel Agger in what will presumably be a 3 man defence with Martin Kelly and Glen Johnson as wing backs, as they were against Stoke in midweek.

Liverpool: Reina, Kelly, Carragher, Skrtel, Agger, Johnson, Meireles, Lucas, Gerrard, Maxi, Kuyt.
Subs: Gulacsi, Aurelio, Suarez, Jovanovic, Kyrgiakos, Ngog, Poulsen

Chelsea: Cech, Bosingwa, Ivanovic, Terry, A Cole, Essien, Mikel, Lampard, Anelka, Torres, Drogba.
Subs: Turnbull, David Luiz, Malouda, Ferreira, Kalou, McEachran, Sala.

Referee: Andre Marriner
