Chelsea faces Liverpool in the FA Cup final Saturday in their first ever final duel at the FA Cup. Although they have met twice in the semi finals and the Reds winning on both occasions.
Blues are in their 11th final, having won six, while the Reds are playing their 14th FA Cup final with seven wins. So both have won almost equally, but Chelsea hold the upper hand with five wins to Liverpool’s four, and with 19 goals to Liverpool’s 15.
As for the players, Chelsea will be without David Luiz and Gary Cahill for the FA Cup final against Liverpool. The Reds on the other hand would make sure they bring in their best as Steven Gerrard, Luis Suarez, Jose Reina, Craig Bellamy and Daniel Agger were all rested for the midweek defeat to Fulham.
A win for the Reds Saturday will make them the fourth team to win the League Cup and FA Cup in the same season and the first to achieve that feat twice - Liverpool won the Curling Cup this year. Arsenal were the first, in 1993 and Liverpool did the double in 2001. The last team to achieve that was opponents Chelsea, in 2007.
What will it be on Saturday? - well both teams are well geared up for the final and fully charged. But obviously the Reds are favourites.....
The match is scheduled for Saturday 5th May at the Wembley Stadium. The Kick-Off is at 17.15 BST .
