Team News For Chelsea vs Liverpool
Tuchel confirmed all players apart from Chilwell will be fit and up for selection. Chilwell is sidelined till the end of the season with an ACL injury.
Firmino will be out of contention with a muscle problem. Jota might be available but still remains a doubt with last week’s ligament injury.
Chelsea’s Predicted XI
Even with Lukaku’s recent form, Tuchel would know the benefits of playing a big physical presence up top, to keep the Liverpool duo of VVD and Matip/Konate occupied.
Chelsea’s ‘Mr. Finals’, Kai Havertz is also likely to be included given his record in these tournament-deciding games.
Ziyech seems to be undroppable right now and would look to start so he can keep his stellar form going.
Reece James’ return to the side means a big boost for Lukaku and Havertz as they would look to benefit from crosses in the box from both full-backs now.
