John Stones has to make do with a place on the bench, whilst on-loan Jack Wilshere makes his first start for Bournemouth – just as SunSport said he would.

In the Premier League last night, Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool handed Antonio Conte the first defeat of his reign with the Blues.

The Reds secured an impressive 2-1 triumph at Stamford Bridge thanks to goals from Dejan Lovren and a stunner from Jordan Henderson.

Henderson had doubled Liverpool’s lead with an absolute belter that looped high over the Belgian goalkeeper and into the top corner.

Diego Costa pulled one back for Chelsea who missed the chance to go top of the Premier League.

Costa hit back in the second half after good build-up but failed to create much as Liverpool held on for a deserved win.
