Goal Scorer:

Chelsea's masterful defensive display at the Etihad came in spite of a few selection concerns at the back, as none of Benoit Badiashile (groin), Reece James (thigh), Wesley Fofana (knee) or Marc Cucurella (ankle) played in that game, and only the latter has a slim chance of coming back for the weekend.

Soon-to-be 40-year-old Thiago Silva - who has lost all three of his domestic cup finals with Chelsea - also relinquished his place in the squad against Man City owing to a groin concern and is still a doubt for the final, but Pochettino will surely see no need to alter his rearguard formula.

As such, Djordje Petrovic could retain possession of the gloves ahead of Robert Sanchez - now back from a knee problem and personal issue - but Carney Chukwuemeka (ankle), Lesley Ugochukwu (thigh) and former Liverpool target Romeo Lavia (also thigh) will be missing from the ranks as well.
Chelsea possible starting lineup:
Petrovic; Gusto, Disasi, Colwill, Chilwell; Caicedo, Fernandez; Palmer, Gallagher, Sterling; Jackson

Onto the ravaged Reds, who must cope without all of Alisson Becker (hamstring), Trent Alexander-Arnold (knee), Ben Doak (knee), Stefan Bajcetic (calf), Joel Matip (ACL), Diogo Jota (knee), Thiago Alcantara (muscle) and Curtis Jones (shin) on Sunday, and large question marks are still hovering above the heads of others.

After leaving the Brentford game a little worse for wear, neither Mohamed Salah nor Darwin Nunez were passed fit for Wednesday's clash with Luton, and Pep Lijnders said on Friday that the duo would require last-minute fitness tests over the weekend - thigh victim Dominik Szoboszlai is in the same boat.

Regardless of Nunez and Salah's respective fitness levels, Cody Gakpo has earned his EFL Cup stars this season with four goals in the competition - only Morgan Rogers boasts more with five - while Harvey Elliott ran Luton ragged in Salah's place on Wednesday and is in line for Liverpool appearance number 101 at Wembley.
Liverpool possible starting lineup:
Kelleher; Bradley, Konate, Van Dijk, Robertson; Gravenberch, Endo, Mac Allister; Elliott, Gakpo, Diaz
Prediction: Chelsea 1-2 Liverpool
