The title-chasers travel to Merseyside to take on the Toffees in what many regard as their last major challenge of the season, and, as usually happens, the Blues tweeted out their line-up earlier this afternoon.
But some supporters were rather surprised to see that Thibaut Courtois had been replaced by the man who left for Arsenal back in 2015:
Of course, the tweet was quickly deleted, but not before thousands of fans had seen it and probably taken a screenshot.
A few had some questions for the Chelsea account:
@ChelseaFC We all saw you first put Cech in goal like it was 2012 all over again. Then you deleted the tweet.

Sadly for Chelsea supporters, it isn’t 2012, and Petr Cech – your Champions League winning hero – does in fact still play for Arsenal, and you can see him turning out against Tottenham Hotspur later today.
Wishful thinking, lads.
