THE FA Cup final is here as Liverpool take on Chelsea in a tantalising showdown at Wembley Stadium.

Jurgen Klopp’s team qualified for the final by defeating Premier League title rivals Man City as they continue to hunt an historic quadruple.

That leaves them facing Chelsea in a repeat of the Carabao Cup final following the Blues’ comfortable 2-0 victory against Crystal Palace.

The fixture is Liverpool’s first FA Cup final in 10 years and Jurgen Klopp’s first ever.

Team news

Liverpool received a welcome boost at Aston Villa on Tuesday as Roberto Firmino returned to the bench.

However, they have been dealt a hammer blow ahead of the final as midfielder Fabinho has been ruled out.

Fortunately for Jurgen Klopp, the Reds have no further injury worries beyond the Brazilian.

Thomas Tuchel has received a boost ahead of the cup final with Mateo Kovacic fit despite being forced off at Leeds after being on the receiving end of a Dan James horror tackle.

However, Tuchel has said he is “90 per cent sure” that Jorginho and Ruben Loftus-Cheek will start in midfield.

Romelu Lukaku has now scored three goals in two games and Tuchel could offer him the ultimate shot at redemption by starting him at Wembley after a patchy season.
