When is the 2021:22 FA Cup final? Date, time and how to watch

Published: 10:55, 11 May 2022

The FA Cup final is staged for Saturday between Chelsea and Liverpool.

In a mouthwatering clash of the heavyweights Jurgen Klopp outfoxed Pep Guardiola in the semi-final as the Reds dismantled English champions Manchester City, teeing up a repeat of February’s Wembley showpiece between the travelling Merseysiders and Chelsea, then in the League Cup final.

Thomas Tuchel had few issues seeing off Crystal Palace in the penultimate round for the Blues, coming through that all-London affair to book another visit under the arch. The German will be desperate to not only exact revenge from February’s League Cup final defeat but also avenge last season’s final loss to Leicester City.

Klopp: The quadruple is so unlikely

Liverpool are currently on a four-frontal assault, looking to add three trophies to the League Cup, which they claimed at the expense of Chelsea on penalties back in February. Saturday’s showdown with the Blues could see the Reds claim both domestic trophies for the season, and keep their chances of a quadruple alive.

The Reds remain hot on Manchester City’s heels in the Premier League title race, and will be hoping that Pep Guardiola’s men falter at some stage in their next three games, while Paris awaits Klopp’s men after they booked their Champions League final ticket against Real Madrid.

However, following their recent 1-1 draw with Tottenham in the Premier League at the weekend, Klopp conceded that now the quadruple is looking unlikely.

“I’m not happy, but not as sad as the players are right now and it is my job to explain why something happens like this,” Klopp told BBC Sport. “Harry Kane and Heung-min Son were completely rested, that is why it is so hard. That is why the quadruple is so unlikely, there is a reason nobody has done it in this country. We will keep going.”
