Liverpool face Chelsea in a domestic cup final for the second time this season as the two sides battle it out for FA Cup supremacy at Wembley this evening.

Express Sport looks at three Chelsea players whom Liverpool will need to be especially wary of given they are without the destructive Brazilian.

Had Mason Mount been more clinical in the Carabao Cup final in February, Chelsea surely would have beaten Liverpool.

He will look to make the Blues tick at Wembley having linked up the attack at Elland Road. Both a creative and goalscoring threat, Liverpool will miss having Fabinho to protect the back four and Mount will look to drop into the pockets of space between the lines to hurt them.

Havertz will be tasked with stretching the Liverpool defence and opening up gaps in between the midfield and defence, and stand-in Henderson will need to be just as concentrated against the threat of the German as he will for Mount.

With three goals in his past two matches, Romelu Lukaku is firmly in contention to start against Liverpool.

Liverpool lack midfield physicality without Fabinho in there, despite the qualities the likes of Henderson, Thiago Alcantara and Naby Keita bring, which will make the physical tussle with Lukaku - who can pin himself against defenders and bring his team-mates into play - all the more important.
