It's been one of the main talking points for much of the week: Will Jose Mourinho field a weakened team against Liverpool on Sunday ahead of Chelsea's Champions League showdown with Atletico Madrid three days later?

Injuries and suspensions have meant some of Mourinho's decisions have been made for him, with the Blues manager confirming at his Friday press conference that Eden Hazard, Samuel Eto'o and John Terry are all potentially unavailable, per Chelsea's official website.

Ramires is also serving a four-game ban for violent conduct after he was retrospectively punished for appearing to slap Sunderland's Sebastian Larsson in last weekend's 2-1 defeat, while a dislocated shoulder means Petr Cech is unlikely to feature before the season is out.

Chelsea have plenty of talent in reserve, with the likes of Nemanja Matic and Mohamed Salah impressing in Premier League games recently, featuring prominently due to being cup-tied in the Champions League.

Outside of the familiar faces, however, who else can Mourinho call upon?

Bleacher Report highlights six players who would be capable of filling in for their more senior colleagues at Anfield on Sunday.
