N’Golo Kante make his first Premier League start of the season for Chelsea against Liverpool today.

Kante has been nursing an ankle problem and came off the bench during the win over Arsenal last week.

But the Frenchman starts against Liverpool at Anfield as the Blues look to maintain their perfect start to the season.

The rest of the team is unchanged from the side who won 2-0 at Arsenal, with Romelu Lukaku leading the line and Cesar Azpilicueta making his 300th Premier League appearance. Kurt Zouma, who is close to joining West Ham, is not involved.

Chelsea XI: Mendy, Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger, James, Jorginho, Kante, Alonso, Mount, Havertz, Lukaku

Subs: Kepa, Thiago Silva, Kovacic, Werner, Loftus-Cheek, Chalobah, Hudson-Odoi, Chilwell, Ziyech

Today 5.30pm BST, Sky Sports

Chelsea squad from: Mendy, Azpilicueta, Chalobah, Christensen, Rudiger, Alonso, Jorginho, Kovacic, Mount, Werner, Havertz, Arrizabalaga, Silva, Zouma, Hudson-Odoi, Chilwell, James, Ziyech, Kante, Lukaku
