Hello welcome to Afriupdate’s live match stream of Chelsea vs Liverpool FA Cup FINAL below.
Today’s FA Cup final between Chelsea and Liverpool will pitch the two teams which competed for the League Cup trophy against each other for only the second time in the competition’s history.
While not a particularly exciting idea on paper, the manner in which these sides last battled during Wembley’s thrilling February final does whet the appetite.
History could prove to be in the Reds’ favour too, after League Cup winners Arsenal doubled up on Wembley victories over Sheffield Wednesday on the only previous occasion, in 1992/93.
Indeed, rarely has a 0-0 proven so exciting and, even in a Premier League context, there has been so little to split the two teams all season. Both meetings in that competition have ended 2-2 even despite Liverpool’s healthy lead over Chelsea in the table.
Although Jurgen Klopp’s attempts to catch Manchester City have taken a blow in recent days, the German could still win all three cup competitions this season and the fact he’s already conquered Chelsea in a knockout contest cannot be ignored.
Still, Thomas Tuchel’s side are masters of this kind of football. Under his watch, Chelsea have reached the final of every competition and it’s worth remembering they beat City in the Champions League showpiece despite some patchy league form. Two of the most entertaining sides in Europe, it’s going to be quite the occasion.
