The FA Cup final is in just under a month’s time and Chelsea will be keen to redeem themselves after a heartbreaking result in the Carabao Cup against the same team.
At the end of February, Liverpool and Chelsea met to fight for the Carabao Cup trophy and after extra time, the result remained 0-0.
It was then forced to go to penalties and Liverpool won 11-10 after Chelsea’s goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga missed their final chance.
A few months down the line and history is beginning to repeat itself as Jurgen Klopp’s men face Thomas Tuchel’s men once again.
Last weekend saw Liverpool face Manchester City while Chelsea faced Crystal Palace. The all London clash was 0-0 at half-time but Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Mason Mount both scored for the Blues sending them to the final.
Liverpool got off to a flying start and were 3-0 up at half-time. Manchester City looked lost and bewildered but a second half resurgence from Pep Guardiola’s side lifted spirits, even if for a moment. Ultimately it was the Reds who came through despite goals from Jack Grealish and Bernardo Silva.
While Liverpool prepare for the quadruple, Tuchel will be hopeful the Blues can put their club’s recent turmoil behind them and end what has been a tumultuous season on a high.
And as the teams prepare to battle for their FA Cup dream, we run you through what we know so far about this season’s final.
