FA CUP FINAL PREVIEW: Chelsea vs Liverpool

Finally, the long-awaited FA Cup final is here.

The Blues take on the Reds in their 2nd Cup final encounter this year, the EFL being the 1st with the former coming short on penalties.

A revenge mission for the Thomas Tuchel’s side, isn’t it?

However, before we proceed, let’s check out the teams each of the finalists eliminated to get to this stage.

  • Chelsea: Chesterfield, Plymouth Argyle, Luton Town, Middleborough, and Crystal Palace
  • Liverpool: Shrewsbury Town, Cardiff City, Norwich City, Nottingham Forest, and Manchester City.

Some easy journey for both teams bar Liverpool’s semifinal tie against Manchester City, isn’t it?.

Let’s now look at points favoring either team getting the ultimate crown today

FA CUP (CHELSEA)

Head To Head (Cup Competitions): Our 1st point in favor of Thomas Tuchel’s men.

Although the Reds have won 2 of the last 5 Cup Competitions against the Blues, none have come within the normal regulation period.

It has always been the Blues carrying the day if a winner emerges without the game going into extra time.

Interesting, isn’t it?

Seems Jurgen Klopp’s men might have to hold Thomas Tuchel’s side beyond 90 minutes if they Intend to get a win according to this trend.

Revenge: One thing the Blues will definitely be looking forward to.

After their controversial EFL loss to today’s opponent in February, no team will be hungrier in getting a win today than Thomas Tuchel’s side.

It will certainly be perfect revenge and a beautiful end to a turbulent season for them.

Let’s not shift our attention to the Reds

FA CUP (LIVERPOOL)

Current Form: You aren’t planning to overlook this, are you?

It’s more than obvious that we can’t name 2 European clubs that have been in hot form in all competitions since the beginning of this year without mentioning Liverpool

The fact that they’ve lost just 1 game during this period further buttresses this point.

Don’t you think they can emerge Champions if they replicate this form in today’s game?

Quadruple Hope: Birthed from our 1st point.

Alongside today’s final, the Reds’ impressive form have helped them clinch the EFL Cup, qualify for the UCL finals, and stay in contention for the EPL Trophy with just 3 points separating them from Manchester City.

The above shows that they’re on track to win a record Quadruple for any English team in a single season.

I presume you now know how important a win today will be in achieving the above feat, don’t you?

No doubt, that’s enough motivation in itself.

ADD ON:

Let’s also be informed that the Blues are currently on 4 domestic finals losing streak (2 FA Cups and 2 EFLs).

The Reds will definitely come out victorious if history decides to repeat itself.

As a Chelsea fan, I hope it doesn’t

CONCLUSION:

As much as I would want this game to end in favor of my team, I wouldn’t be careless enough to work against the facts listed above.

And except you’ve got your important reasons, I will advise you shouldn’t either.

In the meantime, let’s get your thoughts and opinions on this game, shall we?
