Liverpool could win the trophy for a record ninth time – they are currently level with Man City.
They could extend their record as English football’s most successful football club. They have won 48 major trophies to Man United’s 45.
Liverpool at Wembley
This is Liverpool’s 41st Wembley appearance. They have won 19 and lost 15.
Young and old
Should he play, Harvey Elliott at the age of 18 years, 329 days will become the youngest-ever player to appear for Liverpool at Wembley and the first 18-year-old to appear for the Reds in a major final.
The oldest player to score for the club at Wembley is Dirk Kuyt, aged 31 years, 219 days, against Cardiff in the 2012 League Cup final.
A guaranteed first
Today will be the first domestic final in England to feature two German managers.
No German manager has ever lifted the League Cup.
Stuart Attwell refereed the League One playoff final at Wembley in 2016 between Barnsley and Millwall.
Liverpool have lost one of the 15 games he has taken charge of.
