Liverpool predicted lineup vs Chelsea – FA Cup final

Liverpool’s hunt for a quadruple will be put to the test as they go toe-to-toe with Chelsea in the FA Cup final.

The Reds reigned supreme over Thomas Tuchel’s side in the Carabao Cup final just a few short months ago, with Kepa Arrizabalaga spurning the 22nd spot-kick of the penalty shootout to spark scenes of jubilation in the red end at Wembley.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have stuttered in their pursuit of the Premier League title after a 1-1 draw with Tottenham last weekend but, with a Champions League final showdown with Real Madrid at the end of this month, they will be keen to continue their momentum.

Here’s how the Reds could line up.
