The more important clash is the Premier League head-to-head on Saturday, so it would appear that this would be the ideal time for numerous first-choice players to be rested.
Cahill is also in jeopardy of losing the Chelsea captaincy after Sarri said earlier this month that he has decided who should wear the armband, but wants to talk to his players and the club before announcing his choice publicly.
"We are going to play against a fantastic team, so we need to rest and be ready for both games", he said. "The coach will obviously make some changes". "They were all used to other football teams". We want to be strong and show them that it won't be easy for them at Anfield. With James Milner and Gini Wijnaldum both playing a lot this season, it would make sense if they get replaced in the midfield.
"It is a completely different competition and a coincidence that we play them again in a few days".
That run could be under threat against Chelsea, who are unbeaten in their last seven games against the Reds at Anfield - a run rolling back to a 4-1 defeat in the Premier League in 2012.
Robertson's breakthrough at Liverpool came as a result of Moreno's misfortune last December when the latter sustained an injury during the Champions League clash with Spartak Moscow.
Trump assails Boulder woman accusing Kavanaugh: ‘She admits that she was drunk’
That argument was echoed by White House officials attempting to poke holes in the report. "I've never sexually assaulted anyone". Trump said the Senate must confirm Kavanaugh to protect the integrity of judicial nominations. "The second accuser has nothing".

West Ham hopeful key striker will be fit for Chelsea clash
But Marko Arnautovic gave West Ham a two-goal cushion again after finishing off a fine move in the 60th minute on Merseyside. The 31-year-old insists that West Ham have a good squad and need to make sure they can keep winning at the London Stadium.
"The biggest change I ever saw in such a short space of time, wow!" he told a news conference.
The Italian said: "It is an important game".
"It's never the competition that we say: "It's only the League Cup and the final is in March or whatever".
"We'll take it seriously".
Jurgen Klopp has heaped praise on Maurizio Sarri for implementing his philosophy so quickly at Chelsea. Although the Cup game is likely to be more of an undercard to the more fancied Premier League clash this weekend, the presence of some of the so-called fringe players who will be hungry to prove themselves could make it an interesting game.
"But the situation of nobody in this this team at the moment is bad, they're all in a good situation. We will try to be competitive".
