With his side needing just a point to secure Champions League qualification, Tuchel has made it clear just how important the cup is to him.

Thomas Tuchel confirmed before the game that he is prepared to take a risk on the fitness of both Kovacic and N’Golo Kante as Chelsea go in search of a third piece of silverware this season.

Tuchel revealed the ankle injury suffered by Kovacic in the Carabao Cup final actually aided his recovery after Dan James’ X-rated challenge midweek.

Kovacic looked set to miss the Wembley showdown with Liverpool after suffering an ankle injury in Wednesday’s 3-0 win against Leeds.

The Chelsea manager said on Friday: “It’s pretty surprising to be in a situation where we can try it, but Mateo wants to try it.

Hopefully he makes it to training 100 percent so we can plan with him tomorrow.

Tuchel said the midfielder would need a miracle to be involved, but further tests sparked hope he could start on Saturday.
