Chelsea squad from last Carabao Cup final vs Liverpool is almost unrecognisable now | Football | Sport

The matchday squad selected by Pochettino next month will look almost entirely different. Veteran Silva was the only remaining starter from the 2022 final when Chelsea defeated Middlesbrough 6-1 in Tuesday’s semi-final second leg.

He started in defence alongside Axel Disasi, Levi Colwill and Ben Chilwell, the latter of whom was injured when Chelsea were beaten by Liverpool two years ago. £220m duo Moises Caicedo and Enzo Fernandez will likely start in midfield, providing evidence of the change in direction under Boehly and co.
