Chelsea midfielder Mateo Kovacic and former Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren will face off when the Blues get their Champions League campaign underway against Zenit this evening.

Chelsea will go into the fixture off the back of a convincing 3-0 win over Aston Villa on Saturday, with Romelu Lukaku scoring a brace either side of Kovacic's strike that doubled their lead. However, Zenit will be no pushovers, with the likes of Brazilian international pair Claudinho and Malcom likely to be hungry for goals at the top of the pitch.

An interesting battle could arise between Kovacic and Lovren, who joined Zenit from Liverpool last summer.

Kovacic will be hoping that Lovren does not make him pay for his previous dig at the Zenit skipper when they go up against each other this evening.

The Chelsea playmaker name-dropped Lovren when giving his verdict on Liverpool's title chances during a charity event with Croatia back in 2018.

The jokes began after the film had ended, with Kovacic declaring: "Liverpool will not be English champions. Why? Well because they have Dejan Lovren!".

Kovacic's prophecy came true, with the Reds missing out on the Premier League title to Manchester City despite earning 97 points over the course of the campaign.
