WhoScored FA Cup Final Team Selection

Keeper: Edouard Mendy to concede 2+ goals

Edouard Mendy has the worst save success rate in the Premier League since March (53%) and Liverpool rank behind only Bayern Munich for the most shots on target per game in Europe’s top five leagues this season.

Cruncher: Thiago to make 2+ tackles

With Fabinho ruled out on Saturday, Thiago will have a greater role to play when Liverpool are defending. Thiago has made 2+ tackles in 15 of his 17 domestic starts for Liverpool this season. 

Baller: Ruben Loftus-Cheek 40+ passes

Chelsea have a number of fitness problems in central midfield so Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who has started nine of their last 12 matches, looks set to continue his good recent form for the Blues. Loftus-Cheek averages around 50 passes per 90 this season but we are only looking for him to attempt 40+ at Wembley.
