The FA Cup final takes place this evening when Chelsea and Liverpool go head to head at Wembley, with Paddy Power reporting plenty of interest from punters on Liverpool’s price of 11/5.
Chelsea now find themselves in two major cup finals with the Champions League to come later in the month, so could enjoy one of the most successful seasons in the club’s history.
Roberto Di Matteo’s side were enjoying a fantastic spell in their campaign, however it came to an end with a 2-0 defeat to Newcastle at Stamford Bridge.
The Blues did create chances in this game but were stunned by two sensational goals from Papiss Cisse.
When it comes to the FA Cup, the London side have the knowhow in terms of winning the trophy in recent years. They have been victorious in three of the last five tournaments.
Despite the defeat to Newcastle, Di Matteo takes a team full of confidence and self belief into this fixture, as well as the happy memories of the semi-final where they thrashed London rivals Tottenham 5-1.
As for Liverpool, a win this weekend is the only way that they can justify their poor Premier League season.
