Predicted XI: Carabao Cup Final 2024

Less than 24 hours to go… Predicting Pochettino’s team should be easy given the team that beat Aston Villa in the FA Cup, finished the game against Crystal Palace and drew to Man City last week has been somewhat stable.

Pochettino has both goalkeepers available for selection but I expect Petrovic will keep his spot, it would be a massive kick in the teeth if he were to lose his spot to Robert Sanchez.

Three of the back four will pick itself, the expectation should be the same back four we saw in the win over Villa and the draw against Man City. Thiago Silva is a doubt but Pochettino would be foolish to opt with the veteran defender when both Disasi and Colwill haven’t shown any reason to be dropped for this occasion.

The midfield pairing will likely be Enzo Fernandez and Moises Caicedo once again. Gallagher’s hot form in recent weeks will likely see him start and given his recent form I can’t fault it.

The front three I expect to see is Sterling on the left, perhaps interchanging with Jackson and Cole Palmer to play off the right. Unfortunately I don’t see a start for Nkunku as he still looks rusty but him and Mudryk should be having a say off the bench especially against tired legs and if Liverpool’s “injury crisis” is to really be tested.

Predicted XI: Petrovic, Gusto, Disasi, Colwill, Chilwell (C), Enzo, Caicedo, Gallagher, Palmer, Jackson, Sterling.
