This heavyweight clash is a rematch from the 2012 FA Cup final where Chelsea overcame Liverpool 2-1 thanks to goals from Ramires and Didier Drogba, with Andy Carroll pulling one back for the Reds late on.

None of that Chelsea side are still at the Bridge (club captain César Azpilicueta joined that summer) but this is still an eagerly anticipated rematch because both sides contested the EFL Cup final earlier in the year.

Chelsea faced Liverpool at Wembley in February and things were goalless for 120 minutes before a tense penalty shoot-out was won 11-10 by the Reds, with sub goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher scoring the winning spot-kick after Kepa Arrizabalaga missed his effort.

This rematch marks the first time since 1992/93 that the FA Cup final features the same sides as the EFL Cup final, and the fact that it is a direct rematch isn’t something lost on the Chelsea players.

“We want to get them back, simple as that. It was a fantastic game in the League Cup final and could have gone either way,” said Ruben Loftus-Cheek after the win over Crystal Palace, adding: “we look forward to our revenge.”

Chelsea’s other goalscorer Mason Mount was a bit more succinct, simply saying: “it’s time to get our payback,” while also referencing Chelsea’s current five-game losing streak at the national stadium since winning the 2018 FA Cup final against Manchester United, concluding; “it’s definitely time for us to win a final at Wembley.”
