Liverpool vs Chelsea : Confirmed team news, predicted lineup and injury latest for Carabao Cup final

Share this:

Liverpool are sweating over the fitness of Diogo Jota ahead of today’s Carabao Cup final against Chelsea.

Jota suffered an ankle injury in last week’s Champions League win against Inter Milan at the San Siro and is a major doubt to face Chelsea at Wembley.

Speaking on Friday, Liverpool assistant manager Pepijn Lijnders said: “Jota, so far [has] no reaction on the things he did, so the straight-line running, the changes of direction and the ball work he did, so that’s a good sign. He isn’t ruled out but still it will be a challenge.”

Roberto Firmino has been ruled out of the game at Wembley due to a muscle issue.

Lijnders added: “Bobby we have to see in the next two days. He is pushing himself really hard but he will not be available for the final, to reach the squad.

Carabao Cup final day, and there are few difficult decisions for Jurgen Klopp.

In fact, the Liverpool team almost picks itself against Chelsea.

Which, given there are very few absentees, is a sign the Reds know their strongest team.

In goal, though, it’s Caoimhin Kelleher, reward for his patience and performances when called upon.

Joel Matip has edged ahead of Ibrahima Konate again at the heart of defence alongside Virgil van Dijk, while Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson are the full-backs.

“We hope he will be back really soon because you all see and know and feel how important he is for our way of playing, so I am happy that he is pushing himself. Hopefully he is soon back.

With Firmino injured and Jota unlikely to start, Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and January signing Luis Diaz are set to form the Liverpool front three at Wembley.

Caoimhin Kelleher will start in goal and has his eye on becoming a Liverpool legend.
