Key Quotes

Pellegrini: "For everyone, Wembley is one of the most important stadiums in the world. To play a final there creates a different atmosphere.

"It's a special thing. That's why I respect every cup so much."

Kolo Toure: "There will be no fraternising with Yaya before Sunday - no phone calls, no messages, no feeling.

"We are both going to war. We will both want to win and then we will talk after."

Klopp: "We have had some problems since I'm here, but never the problem that we have to much players, so making the squad this time is, two things, the best thing I could ever do and the most difficult thing I have to do until now because a few players will be disappointed.

"A lot of players and managers work their whole life and can be really successful but don't have the chance to win anything, that's how it is sometimes. After a very short time, we have the chance."
