Later on Saturday, Liverpool's 44-match unbeaten run in the Premier League came to an end as they suffered a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Watford at Vicarage Road.
Here, Sports Mole selects a combined XI, using only the players who are expected to be available for the midweek clash.
Despite conceding five goals in his last two outings, Alisson Becker is the obvious choice between the sticks, with neither Willy Caballero nor Kepa Arrizabalaga finding any consistency for the Blues.
Although Reece James has enjoyed a solid period with Chelsea, Trent Alexander-Arnold gets the nod with us, and the England international is inevitably joined in defence by Liverpool teammate Virgil van Dijk.
However, with Joe Gomez potentially being on the sidelines on Tuesday, we are partnering Van Dijk with Kurt Zouma, despite the Frenchman having only been provided with two opportunities since January 25.
While Andrew Robertson would be most people's selection at left-back, the recent goalscoring form of Alonso cannot be ignored, and the Spaniard is preferred here having scored goals in his last three halves of Premier League football.
Regardless of Jordan Henderson's absence through injury, the rest of the starting lineup can only be made up of Liverpool players, with Fabinho taking on the holding-midfielder's role.
That would allow Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain and Georginho Wijnaldum to be involved further forward, rather than Mateo Kovacic being deployed in a two-man partnership with the Brazilian.
The only Chelsea attacker who may have been able to stake a claim for the front three is Tammy Abraham, but the Blues frontman is currently sidelined with an ankle problem.
That leaves Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino to feature in the final third, despite their rare off-day against the Hornets.
