How can Chelsea line up vs Liverpool in the League Cup final?

Chelsea have had an underwhelming season. Mauricio Pochettino will have a chance at salvaging the season on Sunday when Chelsea face Liverpool at Wembley Stadium.

A silverware not only serves as a boost to confidence in the squad but also brings positivity to the club. It teaches a strong sense of belief among the supporters and the squad.

Chelsea will go into the game as second favourites. They have recent experience of going into a game with everyone writing them off but putting in an impressive display.

How can Chelsea line up vs Liverpool in the League Cup final:

Đorđe Petrović

With Roberto Sanchez injured, Mauricio Pochettino has trusted the Siberian professional with the gloves. He has been phenomenal in front of goal. He has been consistently making some excellent saves that come crucial to the outcome of the game. He should start his first cup final with Chelsea on Sunday.

Malo Gusto

With Reece James injured, Malo Gusto has shown promise starting at right back. He can be a problem for Liverpool going forward with his ability to make an impact offensively. The 20-year-old was also particularly impressive on the defensive side of things against Manchester City. He successfully defended 1v1s against Doku last weekend. Chelsea fans will be expecting something similar against Liverpool as well.

Axel Disasi

The 25-year-old centre-back was tagged as the man of the match against Manchester City. He should continue to start at the heart of defence in the cup final.

Levi Colwill

Every youngster dreams about kissing silverware with their boyhood clubs. Levi Colwill has an opportunity to make his dreams come true at the prestigious Wembley Stadium on Sunday. He has been an inspiration for many youngsters at the Cobham academy.

Ben Chilwell

Ben Chilwell has had his injury concerns this season. He had a fantastic start to the season but that was interrupted when he got his hamstring injury mid-season. Marc Cucurella and Levi Colwill were tried in his position at the time, but he has taken up his position now. He should continue to start against Liverpool this Sunday.

Moises Caciedo

In the summer transfer window, Moises Caciedo had an opportunity to join Liverpool in the summer transfer window. His deal with Liverpool was almost done before Chelsea made a last-minute move for his signatures. Caciedo’s presence will be important in the recovery of the ball when Liverpool attack.

Enzo Fernandes

Pinning passes and dictating play is where Enzo Fernandes comes in. His ability to create play sequences will be crucial for Chelsea in attack. Chelsea are one of the most vertical passing teams in the Premier League.

Conor Gallagher

Another Cobham academy product will have his opportunity to play in a cup final with Chelsea. Conor Gallagher will be important to Chelsea when they press and when they counterattack. His presence in the midfield makes Chelsea tick offensively.

Cole Palmer

Many were surprised when Chelsea signed Cole Palmer from Manchester City. He has proved his critics wrong. He would have absorbed the winning gene from his time at Manchester City academy and he will hope to kiss his first trophy with Chelsea on Sunday.
