Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel will be waiting anxiously to discover he will have two key players available for the FA Cup final clash against Liverpool on Saturday.

Otherwise, Tuchel has a strong squad to choose from - and Express Sport looks at how the west London club could line up at Wembley as they bid to win a third trophy this season.

The Spaniard missed the decisive kick as Liverpool prevailed 11-10 on penalties, but has performed admirably in previous rounds of the FA Cup and Carabao Cup too.

Edouard Mendy is first-choice under Tuchel and kept clean sheets in the quarter-final and semi-final victories over Middlesbrough and Crystal Palace respectively.

Trevoh Chalobah has proved to be a lucky charm for Chelsea this season, having not lost a game he has started for the Blues, and his solid display in the 3-0 win over Leeds may be enough to earn the 22-year-old a start at Wembley.

A late fitness test for Kovacic and Kante will give Tuchel a last-minute call to make over his line-up.

Reece James' form makes him an automatic starter at wing-back and Marcos Alonso should line up on the left flank, with Tuchel unlikely to switch to a back four that would bring Malang Sarr into contention for a start.
