Predicted Liverpool line-up vs Chelsea - Carabao Cup final

Liverpool face off against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup final this evening. The Reds are aiming to win the competition for a record ninth time, surpassing Manchester City.



Jurgen Klopp has an almost full side to select from. He is without Roberto Firmino with a muscle injury, but Diogo Jota could feature, having made progress after an ankle issue.

Predicted Line-up:

Caoimhin Kelleher has been ever-present in goal for the Carabao Cup campaign, and looks set to play his first major final for the Merseyside giants.

In defence, it could be the usual personnel. Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joel Matip, Virgil van Dijk and Andrew Robertson are expected to make up backline.

Klopp should go with experience in the centre of the park for the Wembley showdown. Captain Jordan Henderson should be accompanied by Fabinho and Thiago.

In attack, it seems a straightforward decision for Klopp. With Jota just returning from an ankle injury, he appears unlikely to feature from the off against the Blues.

Sadio Mane could be tasked with leading the line with winter signing Luis Diaz on the left wing. Mohamed Salah should be a nailed-on starter on the right side of attack.

Salah has excelled against his former employers. The Egyptian could be key this evening, having already netted in both Premier League meetings between the clubs this term.

Predicted Liverpool line-up (4-3-3): Kelleher; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Thiago, Fabinho; Salah, Mane, Diaz.
