Chelsea vs Liverpool FA Cup final preview
In the 150th anniversary year of the world's original knockout competition we see 2 traditional rivals battle it out for a chance at history.
Chelsea became the first team in nearly 2 decades to qualify for 3 consecutive FA Cup finals and having lost the previous 2 they'll have a strong desire to get some reward for their toil.
Liverpool are still within striking distance of the EPL title, meaning they could conceivably win 3 major English competitions within the 1 season if they can win the FA Cup final. They also have the small matter of a Champions League final against Real Madrid to come.
The 3 previous meetings suggest this will be tight, with all of those matches this season ending in a draw.
Chelsea's defence vs Liverpool's dynamic attack should be fascinating. Liverpool deserve to be favourite, but it'll be third time lucky for the boys from Stamford Bridge.
