Goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga and forward Romelu Lukaku are only named on the Chelsea substitutes' bench for the EFL Cup final with Liverpool.

Arrizabalaga has started each of Chelsea's fixtures en route to Sunday's showpiece at Wembley Stadium, but head coach Thomas Tuchel has opted to select first-choice Edouard Mendy.

Lukaku only featuring among the replacements is less of a surprise with Christian Pulisic and Kai Havertz having impressed against Lille in midweek.

Mason Mount takes the place of Hakim Ziyech, who misses out through injury, while Trevoh Chalobah comes into the team to replace Andreas Christensen after the Dane sustained a minor Achilles injury over the past 48 hours.

Tuchel suggested at his pre-match press conference that he was toying with the idea of handing a start to Reece James after a two-month absence with a hamstring injury, but the Englishman is named on the bench.

Mateo Kovacic, who was an injury doubt, is named alongside N'Golo Kante in midfield, resulting in Jorginho only being selected among the replacements.

Chelsea: Mendy; Chalobah, Silva, Rudiger; Azpilicueta, Kante, Kovacic, Alonso; Mount, Havertz, Pulisic
Subs: Arrizabalaga, James, Sarr, Jorginho, Loftus-Cheek, Saul, Hudson-Odoi, Lukaku, Werner

Liverpool: Kelleher; Alexander-Arnold, Van Dijk, Matip, Robertson; Fabinho, Henderson, Thiago; Diaz, Mane, Salah
Subs: Alisson, Konate, Milner, Keita, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Minamino, Jota, Tsimikas, Origi body check tags ::
