Chelsea vs Liverpool team news

Tuchel has confirmed Reece James, Hakim Ziyech and Mateo Kovacic are all fit.

Chelsea were handed a boost this week when James returned to training after two months out with a hamstring injury.

Mason Mount suffered ankle ligament damage in the Club World Cup Final earlier this month but the midfielder was back on the bench in Tuesday’s Champions League win over Lille.

Kovacic limped off during the 2-0 win at Stamford Bridge in midweek, while Ziyech was also forced off in that game.

Liverpool will be without Roberto Firmino, while Diogo Jota seems unlikely to feature at Wembley.
