Take a look at the latest form and team news from Chelsea and Liverpool:
Chelsea Form and Team News
Chelsea are currently on a six-match winning run in all competitions and are clearly in high spirits after their routine home victory against Lille on Tuesday. The London side have already snapped up 2 trophies this season (the UEFA Super Cup and the Club World Cup) and will hope to make it 3 out of 3 wins in cup finals this season.
The Blues are still fighting for glory on four fronts and have recently picked up form after a slump that saw them lose ground in the league title race. They sit third behind Manchester City and Liverpool, who appear to be on a season-defining course as 3 points separate them. Chelsea have 50 points from 25 games and are 13 points behind City, although they have played a game less.
For their team news, Chelsea will be without English trio Callum Hudson-Odoi, Reece James, and Ben Chilwell, who are sidelined with various degrees of injuries.
Liverpool Form and Team News
Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool are firing on all cylinders as they go on a hunt for their first piece of silverware this season, in what is shaping up to be a successful season by their standards. They are on a nine-game winning streak and put 6 goals past Leeds on Wednesday.
The Reds sit 2nd on the league standings, 3 points behind Manchester City, and are already fancying their chances of winning. Before then, they will hope to snap up the League Cup at Wembley this Sunday. With Mohammed Salah, Sadio Mane, and midfield powerhouses Thiago and Fabinho, they are almost unplayable presently.
For their team news, Liverpool will miss the services of Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino, who are injured and will most likely sit out the match at Wembley.
