The Merseyside giants, who opened the Premier League season with a 4-1 victory over Norwich City on Friday, earned their place in this fixture by overcoming Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League final.
Liverpool have won this trophy on three occasions, most recently in 2005 after their famous triumph against AC Milan, while Chelsea were last victorious back in 1998.
However, the Blues did finish as runners-up in 2012 and 2013, with a 4-1 defeat to Atletico Madrid being followed by Bayern Munich prevailing in a penalty shootout 12 months later.
Here, Sports Mole has selected the best possible XI from the players who are available for the showdown in Turkey.
Given Chelsea's demise against Man United three days ahead of this game, the make-up of the backline is equally one-sided with Liverpool's strongest defence filling all four positions.
Both teams are well-stocked with options going forward, and it has left us in a position where we feel obliged to pick a two-man midfield consisting of Fabinho and N'Golo Kante, players who would be able to complement each other with their contrasting attributes.
Selecting Liverpool's established front three in the final third is a foregone conclusion, but we would not necessarily use them in the same roles as Jurgen Klopp.
The USA international is capable of playing in any of the creative positions in attack but as it stands, it makes sense to use the 20-year-old out wide.
