The Brazilian was forced off after half an hour in the Reds’ win over Aston Villa, suffering a hamstring injury that Jurgen Klopp has confirmed will keep him out of this weekend’s final.


Klopp has at least confirmed that Fabinho will be fit in time for the Champions League final later this month, but for now it appears Jordan Henderson is the most likely to play as the deepest of the three midfielders.


“We can cope, having him or not having him is a difference but it is all fine,” Klopp said on Thursday.


“That’s normal stuff that happens. It’s never in a position where you have 12 options, it’s always in a position where you [don’t].

Romelu Lukaku has given Thomas Tuchel a selection headache after scoring three goals in his last two games to move clear as Chelsea’s leading marksman. In that kind of form, it will be difficult for Tuchel to leave out the £97.5million club-record signing.


But Kai Havertz has established himself as the preferred option at the point of attack. His work-rate and link-up play could also be crucial against Liverpool’s quality — not to mention his record for scoring important goals.


Mount-James double act


Leeds got a taste of the damage Mason Mount and Reece James can cause when combining on the right — and it is a partnership Chelsea have been robbed of for long periods this season.


If Liverpool had anyone watching at Elland Road, they will have identified that pair as the key threat. James’s power down the right should also work to keep the attacking ambitions of Andy Robertson in check.


Exploit Fabinho absence


Klopp has confirmed Fabinho is out of the match, which leaves a significant hole in Liverpool’s midfield. They have more than enough cover, but Fabinho is a key figure for them and Chelsea must look to take advantage.


News that Mateo Kovacic could play is a major boost, as his driving runs have proved the basis of so many of Chelsea’s attacks this season.


After some very straining and turbulent months, finishing the season on a high by winning the FA Cup would be quite welcome. Liverpool may have bested us in the Carabao Cup final, but now it’s our turn. With the top-four all but secured, we definitely need to go all in for this game.


The WAGNH community agreed that the 3-4-3 formation is once again the right choice over the 3-5-2 (19%), as has been customary. The same is unsurprisingly the case for Édouard Mendy in goal, who easily keeps his spot ahead of Kepa Arrizabalaga (8%).


The backline stays the same after Antonio Rüdiger, Thiago Silva and Trevoh Chalobah all played well against Leeds; Andreas Christensen (23%) and Malang Sarr (2%) don’t come close. Similarly, Reece James and Marcos Alonso continue to keep César Azpilicueta (32%) and Kenedy (1%) out of the side at wing-back.


Mateo Kovačić (2%) and N’Golo Kanté are questionable for this game, but the latter is more likely to play and thus gets the community’s vote, next to Jorginho in the pivot. Ruben Loftus-Cheek (52%) is not far behind; the same can’t be said of Saúl Ñíguez (2%) or Ross Barkley (1%).


A Romelu Lukaku goal in the final is the redemption arc we all want to see, so he keeps his spot after scoring three times in our last two games. Mason Mount is an obvious choice, but the third spot was certainly up for grabs, with Kai Havertz narrowly edging out Christian Pulisic (52%). Hakim Ziyech (8%) and Timo Werner (31%) remain on the bench.


3-4-3 (74%)


Mendy (91%) | Rüdiger (98%), Silva (97%), Chalobah (53%) | Alonso (86%), Jorginho (87%), Kanté (54%), James (99%) | Havertz (56%), Lukaku (69%), Mount (96%)

Jurgen Klopp's team will be aiming to win their second piece of silverware this season after they beat the Blues in the Carabao Cup final on penalties back in February.


The Reds also remain in the hunt in the Premier League title race with two games to play and have the Champions League final to look forward to against Real Madrid at the end of the month.


“We have a few players. Hendo came on and played incredible [against Villa], he has played super games this season at number six so that is not a problem.”


Andy Robertson and Mohamed Salah didn’t start at Villa Park but should come back into the side, with Klopp’s two big decisions coming at centre-back and up front.


Joel Matip and Ibrahima Konate are competing to partner Virgil van Dijk in defence, with Konate potentially getting the nod as he appears more suited to deal with the threat of Romelu Lukaku.


Luis Diaz is likely to start alongside Salah and Sadio Mane in the front three, which would leave Diogo Jota having to settle for a place on the bench.


Predicted Liverpool XI (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Thiago, Keita; Salah, Mane, Diaz

helsea and Liverpool meet once again at Wembley as they look to secure FA Cup glory in this afternoon’s final.


The two sides played out an eventful 120 minutes earlier this season in the Carabao Cup final, which ultimately saw Liverpool come out on top as Kepa Arrizabalaga came off the bench to have a penalty shoot-out to forget.


Since then, the talk has been of a quadruple for Jurgen Klopp’s side and those hopes still remain alive, even if the Premier League seems to be slipping away from the Reds.


For Chelsea, it’s been a frustrating few months that has seen them fall away in Europe and domestically - Thomas Tuchel will be desperate to finish the season on a high and with another piece of silverware.
