'We have no idea!' - Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp makes Chelsea admission ahead of FA Cup final

By Bobby Vincent

Jurgen Klopp has admitted he has "no idea" how Thomas Tuchel will set up Chelsea's attack in their FA Cup final showdown with Liverpool. The Blues' front three all scored in their win against Leeds United earlier in the week, giving Tuchel plenty of tough decisions.

Romelu Lukaku, Mason Mount and Christian Pulisic all started at Elland Road on Wednesday evening and they all found the back of the net as Chelsea won 3-0. For Lukaku and Pulisic, it's now back-to-back starts, while Mount was rested at the weekend but brought back into the XI for the trip to Yorkshire.

Kai Havertz, Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech were all left on the bench at Leeds, with Tuchel facing some huge decisions regarding his attacking line for the FA Cup final with Liverpool. Reds boss Klopp, when speaking in his pre-match press conference on Friday afternoon, praised Chelsea for the talent they have at their disposal and also admitted that he is not sure how the Blues will set up at Wembley.

"Chelsea are a really, really well-coached team," Klopp explained. They have an idea for all different areas of the game, that's how it is.

"They play a similar system to other teams, but a different level. They're very organised defensively and offensively they have so much talent.

"We have no idea how Thomas will set up for example, they have so many different options in offensive areas. Werner, Ziyech and Havertz didn't start the last game. All three could start, for example, and it gives a completely different dynamic to Mount, Lukaku and Pulisic.

"They can play with two strikers, one and two 10s. The only thing that's clear is they defend with five in the last line.

"We don't know exactly if they have two or three midfielders. It's very interesting to prepare, to be honest. We play a final, an FA Cup final and it would be a real surprise if we met a weak team in that final."

Klopp also gave the latest on Liverpool midfielder Fabinho, who will miss the final against Chelsea after a muscular injury he suffered in the win against Aston Villa on Tuesday. "Fabinho will definitely be back for the Champions League final," Klopp said.

"Before, we will see. Fab is a professional. He wasn't happy about it, that's clear, but he's taken it. It's not enough if you're ready on Friday before the final, so we're working on that but he's absolutely okay."
