Liverpool Vs Chelsea Prediction
Liverpool v Chelsea – Not for the first time this season, Liverpool and Chelsea renew hostilities at Wembley Stadium with a trophy on the line, this time doing battle in the final of the 141st FA Cup final. For the London club, the FA Cup represents the only piece of domestic silverware left on the line this season, and fellow capital side Crystal Palace were no match for the Blues’ superiority in the semi-finals.
Meanwhile, Liverpool won one of their many battles of dominance with Manchester City to make it to the showpiece event, and the prospect of a four-trophy haul is still lingering in the minds of the travelling Merseyside fans.
Chelsea have suffered an ultimately disappointing campaign. The Champions League holders were expected to challenge for the title, but they are miles behind Manchester City and Liverpool and are having to fend off challenges from fellow London clubs Spurs and Arsenal just to clinch third place. They were in action on Wednesday and cruised to a win at relegation-haunted, ten-man Leeds United.
Liverpool are looking to complete a domestic cup double after beating Chelsea on penalties in the League Cup final earlier this year. They haven’t lost away from home since December. Jurgen Klopp hasn’t managed to beat Thomas Tuchel in regular time across their last five meetings but it’s hard not to favour Liverpool on Saturday.
We’re expecting goals in this game at both ends of the pitch, just as we have seen in three of the last six meetings between these two great English clubs. Three of Chelsea’s last six outings have ended with both teams scoring and the Londoners have only failed to score in one of those matches. Liverpool have seen each of their last three games end with both teams finding the back of the net and the Reds have scored in all six of those fixtures.
