The Reds take on Chelsea in this evening’s final, in their 60th game of the campaign.
In his pre-match press conference, Jurgen Klopp confirmed that Fabinho would “definitely” be fit for the Champions League final on May 28, adding that “we will see” whether he could return from his hamstring injury before then.
While the Brazilian has been spotted at Wembley ahead of kickoff and appears to be walking fine, there is no expectation he will be involved for the FA Cup final.
A 25-man squad disembarked from the team bus on Saturday morning, with no new setbacks to concern Klopp as he bids for a second trophy so far this season.

Klopp’s biggest selection quandary comes in attack, as though Mohamed Salah is set to come back in, a decision will need to be made over which of Luis Diaz, Diogo Jota or Roberto Firmino joins the Egyptian and Sadio Mane.
Youngster Rhys Williams is also at Wembley but is unlikely to make the 20-man matchday squad, with the likes of Harvey Elliott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Takumi Minamino, Joe Gomez and Divock Origi among those who could also be left out.
