Chelsea vs Liverpool predictions. In the League Cup final replay, Liverpool will meet again against Chelsea in the FA Cup final on Saturday (14/5) evening WIB at Wembley.
Crazy Ball – Liverpool saw their quadruple hopes take a major hit over the previous weekend as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Spurs in the Premier League, leaving them three points behind Manchester City with two games to play.
While the Premier League may be hard to come by, at least Jurgen Klopp’s men still have higher hopes for the other two trophies after they reached the FA Cup final against Chelsea and the Champions League final against Real Madrid.
Liverpool have previous experience of beating Chelsea in League Cup finals when the Merseyside side took the lead on penalties to become their first trophy of the season, but Thomas Tuchel’s men will surely be on a mission to pay for their loss in that final.
The Blues will also go into this match with a positive capital after winning a landslide victory 0-3 over Leeds United to strengthen their position in the top three of the Premier League standings and stay away from the pursuit of rivals London duo, Arsenal and Spurs.
Liverpool are still ahead in the long history of this encounter, winning 83 and losing 65, while 43 meetings ended in draws. The last three meetings between the two teams ended in a draw.
Mateo Kovacic will be sidelined after picking up an ankle injury against Leeds, while Ben Chilwell and Callum Hudson-Odoi are still injured. N’Golo Kante also doesn’t appear to be available here either.
Fabinho will miss the FA Cup final with a hamstring injury he picked up in midweek.
Liverpool XI (4-3-3): Alisson Becker; Trent Alexander-Arnold, Ibrahima Konate, Virgil van Dijk, Andrew Robertson; Naby Keita, Jordan Henderson, Thiago Alcantara; Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Luis Diaz
Chelsea XI (3-4-1-2): Edouard Mendy; Cesar Azpilicueta, Thiago Silva, Antonio Rudiger; Reece James, Jorginho, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Marcos Alonso; Mason Mount; Kai Havertz, Romelu Lukaku
The two teams drew in their last three meetings, including in the previous League Cup final, before Liverpool finally took the lead on penalties.
Chelsea ended a three-game winless streak with a 0-3 away win over Leeds in the Premier League, but Liverpool have been in far more consistent form and with Jurgen Klopp also only missing Fabinho for this game, of course the Merseyside side are in the lead.
Score Prediction: Chelsea 1-2 Liverpool
