It’s back to Wembley for Liverpool with another trophy to fight for and, with one enforced absence, Jurgen Klopp has a number of selection decisions to make against Chelsea.

The Reds are in their first FA Cup final under Klopp and for the second time this season, Chelsea awaits in the showpiece.

They would each warrant their place in the side but this XI would not offer as many fresh legs as the abovementioned XI, something Klopp will no doubt weigh up: • Matip to keep place and make second final appearance • Jones to join Henderson and Thiago as right-sided midfielder • Jota to start up top alongside Mane and Salah Those tweaks see Liverpool shape up as follows: You feel the consensus will largely favour the first XI listed, which some will argue is now the strongest possible XI in Fabinho‘s absence.
