Chelsea vs Liverpool: Preview, Stats, Lineup, and Prediction

It’s all to play for later today at Wembley when Chelsea face-off against a red-hot Liverpool side who are still in the running to win four titles this season.

In contrast, today’s FA cup final is Chelsea’s only chance to clinch a domestic trophy this season, and if they succeed, it will go down as the last silverware won under the Roman Abramovich era.

Liverpool will be keen to take this one as well because Manchester City look like they’ll run away with the Premier League, and Real Madrid beckons in the Champions League final. So, this could well be their golden opportunity to add to the League Cup they won earlier this season.

Here’s everything you need to know about this FA Cup final.

Key Stats:

  • Liverpool last won the FA Cup in 2006 when they beat Westham 3-1 on penalties. Since then, they’ve only made it to the final once, falling to a 2-1 defeat against today’s opponent Chelsea in the 2012 final
  • In that 16-year period, Chelsea has won this title five times
  • Chelsea’s last two outings at Wembley have ended in defeats
  • Chelsea have won the last two FA Cup meetings between these two sides
  • Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 15 games
  • The last three meetings (in all competitions) between these two teams have ended in a draw in regular time.
  • Chelsea have won only two of their last six games in all competitions

Prediction:

Chelsea have had it good against Liverpool in recent years, but on current form, you wouldn’t put it past the Reds to win this one.

They have quality everywhere; they’re in sizzling form, and Chelsea are not quite themselves.
