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.

Alisson (GK) - His superhero abilities in one-on-one situations could prove vital against a pacey Chelsea forward line.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (RB) - One swing of his right boot is usually fatal for teams who offer him space.

Ibrahima Konate (CB) - Headed Liverpool ahead against Man City in the semi-finals on his last trip to Wembley.

Virgil van Dijk (CB) - Looking to make it a hat-trick of domestic trophies during his time at Liverpool.

Andy Robertson (LB) - Chelsea will need to be wary of his ability to attack the back post from crosses.

Jordan Henderson (DM) - Has quietly excelled as a holding midfielder during his time at Liverpool.

Thiago Alcantara (CM) - People doubted whether he'd be a success in a Klopp side but, after a difficult adaptation period, he has finally found his feet.

Naby Keita (CM) - Tends to reserve his best performances for these big occasions at Liverpool.

Mohamed Salah (RW) - His 30 Premier League goals this term means he's a shoo-in to be given the nod by Klopp in attack.

Sadio Mane (ST) - Operates as a central striker nowadays, producing a Man of the Match display in the semi-final against Man City.

Luis Diaz (LW) - Has made an incredible impact since arriving from Porto, preserving Liverpool's formidable home record with his equaliser against Tottenham last time out.
