Chelsea vs Liverpool live stream: match preview

With the first (proper) silverware of the season up for grabs at Wembley Stadium today, Chelsea and Liverpool come to a repeat of the 2022 Carabao Cup Final in very different places.

Jurgen Klopp's harshest critics will say that his eight years at Anfield hasn't yielded enough trophies. Now, with only a few months left of his tenure, he has the opportunity to lead them to a quadruple. Sitting top of the Premier League and among the favorites to win the FA Cup and Europa League, his famous smile will light up Wembley Stadium if he sees captain Virgil van Dijk with his hands on that iconic three-handled cup this evening.

For Mauricio Pochettino and Chelsea, the Carabao Cup has been a slither of light in an otherwise dark season. But a 1-1 draw at Manchester City last Saturday showed the kind of fight and quality that the Argentinian has been trying to prise out of his side, and he'll be trying to find ways of removing the memory of the 4-1 thrashing they suffered to today's opponents last month as the team coach rolls into Wembley Way.

Despite finishing in a no-score draw, the final two years ago lives in the memory thanks to the penalty shoot-out that went all the way to the goalkeepers. Liverpool's reserve keeper Caoimhin Kelleher converted his with surprising cool, before watching Kepa Arrizabalaga sky his effort way over the bar. The Reds won the shoot-out 11-10 to lift the League Cup for a record ninth time.

In team news, Klopp's final-day squad is seriously depleted, with the likes of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Alisson Becker, Mohamed Salah, Darwin Nunez and Diogo Jota all injured. That leaves the German manager relying on his young guns to bring back the silver today. Skipper Reece James and the influential Thiago Silva are Chelsea's biggest absences.

Chelsea vs Liverpool Carabao Cup final teams:

Chelsea: Petrovic, Chilwell, Colwill, Disasi, Gusto, Caicedo, Fernandez, Palmer, Gallagher, Sterling, Jackson

Liverpool: Kelleher, Robertson, Konate, Van Dijk, Bradley, Mac Allister, Endo, Gravenberch, Elliott, Gakpo, Diaz
