Before Liverpool faced the EFL Cup final against Chelsea this Sunday at Wembley, the group led by Jurgen Klopp had a difficult test against Luton Town in the Premier League, winning 4-1, which showed some shortcomings in the first 45 minutes, but at the same time they managed to leave a good image with a comeback that had more than one player being a factor in getting the goals.

Jurgen Klopp's list of absentees for Carabao Cup final revealed

It is true that this group that played in the middle of the week will not be the same that will end up starting on Sunday, with some changes, especially on offense, that will enhance the level of a group that has undoubtedly been faced with a serious injury problem that will reduce the strategies and the good soccer they have been practicing for weeks.

On offense, Klopp can be expected to field players such as Luis Diaz, Darwin Nunez, Mohamed Salah or Cody Gakpo, all of them having scored more than ten goals in the season, increasing the likelihood that the Reds can score during the game, being able to generate their third consecutive goal, beating Brentford and Luton Town with identical 4-1 scorelines so far.

Not only the offensive sector is the only one with a great potential to beat the Blues, the defense is currently one of the most solid sectors and without less casualties, because even without the presence of one of their best men as Trent Alexander Arnold, the Reds have a great young player as Conor Bradley, having on the bench a great backup with Jarell Quansah or Kostas Tsimikas.

The big difference could be in the midfield

Since a few weeks ago, Mauricio Pochettino's team has suffered a lot with their midfielders, and Enzo Fernandez and Moises Caicedo have not been able to be that great differentiator as it was thought since the beginning of the season, being Mac Allister and Wataru Endo infinitely superior to this pair of the Blues, being demonstrated weeks ago during their Premier League duel that ended up winning the Reds by a score of 4-1.
