The fixture is a rematch of the Carabao Cup final back in February, which ended in a stalemate after normal time and extra-time. Penalties were the deciding factor, with Kepa Arrizabalaga's effort blazing over the bar.

Speaking to the Telegraph, he said: "Wembley is known around the world for being the home of the English football team - it has a status like the Stade de France and the Maracana.

"It's a privilege to play in these stadiums and, obviously, it would be an amazing thing to win there. I've lost finals there against Leicester and Liverpool, and those are not great memories. To return to Wembley and win a trophy would be another dream come true."

Silva went on to add how the squad collectively wanted to win the trophy: "For us, it means a lot, the FA Cup final. It's an incredibly important competition for us as players, we know what it means with its status here in England and, of course, we lost last year. So it's a competition we would absolutely love to win."
