Predicted Chelsea XI vs Liverpool: Nkunku starts in 4-2-3-1 formation

Chelsea and Liverpool will travel to Wembley to play the replay of the 2022 Carabao Cup Final where the Reds emerged victorious in a penalty shootout that ended 11-10 after extended time. While Pochettino would want his men to win Boehly and co. some silverware, the Reds will be motivated to make this a memorable season for Klopp as they bid him farewell.

1 of 3

1. Goalkeeper: Djordje Petrovic (Serbia)

The former MLS star is already proving to be one of the best keepers in the league in his first season in Chelsea colors and looks all set to drop a decisive performance tomorrow. Should be starting in goal, even if Robert Sanchez passes the necessary fitness tests.

2. Right Back: Malo Gusto (France)

The 19 year old has been super impressive covering for our club captain - Reece James all season. He also enjoyed his battle last week against City's trickster, Jeremy Doku, and will hope to get the better of Klopp's attackers too.

3. Centre Back: Axel Disasi (France)

Axel Disasi dropped his best performance in a Blue shirt and was named MOTM against City's potent attack. Watching our younger players display such accountability in the absence of experience is really promising. His ability to play out from the back could prove to be crucial tomorrow.

"“We’ll do everything to win”"

4. Centre Back: Levi Colwill (England)

Thiago Silva is still a doubt for tomorrow. Pochettino did confirm that he has a chance but would not want to risk stability if he isn't a 100% fit.

5. Left Back: Ben Chilwell (England)

Chilwell is yet to find form but it is difficult to doubt his reliability when it comes to a Cup Final. Probably picturing the trophy lift already.
