This Saturday, the FA Cup final is set to take place as Chelsea and Liverpool go head-to-head for victory in England’s oldest competition. This is the fourth meeting between the pair this season, as Chelsea will look to exact revenge after a penalty shoot-out saw them miss out on the Carabao Cup earlier in the campaign.
Based on form, Liverpool enters this one as slight favourites, as despite dropping points recently against Tottenham to all but end their title challenge, Jurgen Klopp’s side had won their previous six, as well as coming from behind to beat Aston Villa last time out.
Chelsea’s recent results certainly leave more to be desired, as since making the final, Thomas Tuchel’s side have won just twice against West Ham and Leeds, as well as drawing with Manchester United and Wolves, and losing to Arsenal and Everton, although they will be high in confidence after a 3-0 victory at Elland Road in mid-week.
As for both sides' FA Cup runs, Liverpool has seen off Shrewsbury, Cardiff, Norwich, Nottingham Forest, and rivals Manchester City, whilst Chelsea have arguably had an easier run of games, overcoming Chesterfield, Plymouth Argyle, Luton Town, Middlesborough, and beating Crystal Palace in the semi-final.
