FA Cup: Chelsea Facing Liverpool In Final For Second Time In Three Months

May 14, Kathmandu- Liverpool, and Chelsea are set to face each other tomorrow for the title of the English football competition FA Cup. The game will start at 9:30 pm Nepali time.

Seven-time champions Liverpool and eight-time champions Chelsea are set to meet in the FA Cup final for the second time. Liverpool, who have been in good form for the last time, have a golden opportunity to win their second title of the season. Liverpool, who had previously won the Carabao Cup, have also reached the final of the Champions League and are in contention for the Premier League title.

Liverpool also beat Chelsea in extra time in the League Cup last February to win the title. Chelsea's performance has been somewhat deteriorating due to the club's management for the last time.

In today's game, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane will have a lot of responsibility for Liverpool. Luis Diaz, Roberto Firmino, and Diogo Jota are also in excellent rhythm.

Chelsea has reached the FA Cup final for the third time in a row and has reached the final five times in the last six seasons. Meanwhile, Liverpool is playing in the FA Cup final after 10 years. The last time they played in the final was in 2012. That bell also saw Liverpool lose 2-1 to Chelsea.

The last time Liverpool won the FA Cup was in 2006. This final game will be special in another form as well. This is because one hundred and fifty years after the beginning of this competition is being completed today. 

Chelsea has won the title five times since Liverpool won the final for the last time. It is said that 85,000 spectators will reach the ground for this game. When Manchester United beat Watford 6-0 in 2019, there will be the same number of spectators.

Chelsea's two key players will not be available for this game. Midfielder Katie Kovacs will be sidelined with an ankle injury and Kante has a fitness problem. Liverpool's Fabinho will not play in this game due to injury.

If Liverpool wins this game, it will be the sixth title for his coach Klopp. 

This is the first time the same team has faced each other in the League Cup final and the FA Cup final. This will be the 10th clash between Liverpool and Chelsea in the last three seasons. Liverpool, Chelsea, and Chelsea have drawn three of their last six Premier League games.

Chelsea last defeated Liverpool 2-0 in the 2020 FA Cup. Seven months ago, Liverpool lost in the UEFA Super Cup by five to four in a tiebreaker.
