Chelsea (CHE) take on Liverpool (LIV) in the Carabao Cup 2021-22 final at the iconic Wembley Stadium on Sunday, February 28. The match will kick off at 10:00 PM IST.
CHE vs LIV Dream11 prediction
Jurgen Klopp’s head to head record against Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel is simply outstanding, to say the very least. The years-old rivalry between the two friends dates back to their Bundesliga days, and the two have also squared off in the European competitions.
In 17 meetings, Klopp has won a whopping nine while Tuchel has managed a mere three wins while five games have ended in stalemate.
Come Sunday, we expect the Reds to come out on top.
CHE s LIV Dream11 team tips for Carabao Cup 2021-22 final
Top tip: Best forward
Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has scored a goal in his last two meetings with Chelsea, making him the most obvious pick for this fixture. Furthermore, the fact that the Egypt captain has contributed with four goals and an assist in his last three outings across all competitions warrants him a place in your fantasy team.
Top tip: Best midfielder
Sadio Mane, registered as a midfielder, is one of the top picks for this clash. The Senegalese forward has been among goals in his last two outings, scoring three goals against Leeds United and Norwich combined. Though he hasn’t featured for the Reds in the competition yet, Mane is poised for a strong impact on Sunday.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
Selected by 82.23 per cent of fantasy users, LIV’s Trent Alexander-Arnold has tallied an impressive 125 fantasy points in just two Carabao Cup games, including an 88-point haul against Arsenal last time out. At 9.5 credits, he may remain an expensive investment but worth every penny.
For a goalkeeper, Alisson Becker of Liverpool could prove to be a worthy candidate as the Brazilian is more likely to keep a clean sheet. On top of that, it’s uncertain whether Chelsea will start with Edouard Mendy or Kepa Arrizabalaga between the sticks.
CHE vs LIV probable playing XI
CHE playing XI (probable): Kepa Arrizabalaga (goalkeeper); Andreas Christensen, Thiago Silva, Antonio Rudiger; Cesar Azpilicueta (captain), N’golo Kante, Jorginho, Marcus Alonso; Mason Mount, Kai Havertz, Christian Pulisic
LIV playing XI (probable): Alisson Becker (goalkeeper); Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joel Matip, Virgil van Dijk, Andrew Robertson; Jordan Henderson (captain), Fabinho, Thiago; Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Luis Diaz
