Liverpool expected XI vs Chelsea as Jurgen Klopp reacts to Fabinho blow with five changes


Goalkeeper: Alisson

Caoimhin Kelleher was exceptional in Liverpool’s Carabao Cup final win against Chelsea in February, showcasing a series of fine goalkeeping in open-play and the penalty shoot-out. However, Klopp could opt for his first-choice stopper with the quadruple still in sight.

Defence: Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Robertson

After receiving a rest in the Villa win, Andrew Robertson should return to the side on the opposite side of the defence and will face a monumental challenge against Reece James. Trent Alexander-Arnold will undoubtedly keep his place in the side and will have just as challenging an afternoon against Marcos Alonso.

Virgil van Dijk will be the first name on Klopp’s teamsheet as one of a stellar selection of centre-backs on either side. And Ibrahima Konate, the scorer of Liverpool’s opening goal against Manchester City in the semi-finals, could replace Joel Matip to provide fresh legs.
