This is Jurgen Klopp's last season with Liverpool, so the players would like to win another trophy under him in what could potentially be his last cup final.

Chelsea arrives in this game with a great performance against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium. Chelsea won two games in a row before the Man City game and ended their winning streak. Chelsea are sat in 11th place in the Premier League table with 35 points. A win in their next Premier League game can help them leap to 8th over Newcastle United. This is Pochettino's first season with Chelsea and despite the poor position in the table, he has guided the club to a final.
