Hey Reds! It's a big one, a final! Klopp's men face Chelsea in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday at 11:30 am EST. Liverpool has the opportunity to claim the first piece of silverware available in the 21/22 season. Sunday's final will be played at the iconic Wembley stadium in London, which only heightens the level of the event. Let's take a look at some key numbers heading into the final.

3 - Liverpool players occupy the top 3 positions for both goals and assists in the league this season. Mo, Diogo, and Sadio are the top 3 goalscorers, while Trent, Mo, and Robbo are the top assisters. Utter domination!

3 - This will be the 3rd time the Reds have faced Chelsea this season. Both games ended in a tie, obviously, this can't happen on Sunday. The game will have to be decided on the day, whether that's extra-time or penalties.
