CHELSEA take on Liverpool in TODAY'S FA Cup final at Wembley Stadium.

The Blues and the Reds have been two of the Premier League's best teams this season, so fans may expect a tight encounter in later today.

That leaves all the room in the world for a draw after 90 minutes of action, meaning a potentially nervy ending to the game for fans of both teams.

Will FA Cup final go to extra-time or penalties?

This season's FA Cup format has seen a few changes due to fixture congestion and Coronavirus.

Replays were scrapped in order to put at ease the teams competing under a hectic football schedule.

However, extra time throughout this season's competition has remained.

So if Chelsea's final clash with Leicester ends in a draw after 90 minutes of action, both sides will remain on the pitch for at least another 30 minutes.

Penalties, like usual, will only be needed if the game is still drawn after the full 120 minutes.

There hasn't been an extra-time period played in the FA Cup final since 2016, when Manchester United beat Crystal Palace 2-1.

And the last time penalties were needed in the FA Cup final was 2006, when Liverpool overcame West Ham after a 3-3 draw.

Swiatek defends Italian Open title with 28th straight win

ROME (AP) — Iga Swiatek is going into the French Open on quite a run.

The top-ranked Swiatek overwhelmed Ons Jabeur 6-2, 6-2 to defend her Italian Open title on Sunday and extend her winning streak to 28 matches.

Swiatek was a surprise champion at the French Open in 2020 when she was ranked No. 54. Now the 20-year-old Polish player is the favorite to add a second title at Roland Garros when the year’s second Grand Slam starts next Sunday.

Swiatek has won five straight titles during her run.

Jabeur was on a streak of her own with 11 consecutive wins entering the final after her Madrid Open title last week but the Tunisian’s crafty game of drop shots and spins proved no match for Swiatek’s swift movement and accurate groundstrokes.

Wearing a ribbon attached to her hat featuring the colors of Ukraine’s flag, Swiatek took control right from the start, breaking Jabeur’s serve in the second game of the match with a mix of finesse and power.

Swiatek won one point in that second game with a forehand lob winner after drawing Jabeur forward with a well-placed drop shot, then on her first break point she took a huge swipe at a second serve that Jabeur couldn’t control.

Swiatek also kept her composure when she saved four break points at a crucial point late in the second set, sliding in to reach a drop shot then responding with a splendid backhand volley drop winner on the final break point.

The last player to win more consecutive matches was Serena Williams, who put together run of 34 straight ending in 2013. The all-time longest streak belongs to Martina Navratilova, who had a run of 74 in 1984.

Later on the red clay court at the Foro Italico, Novak Djokovic was playing Stefanos Tsitsipas in the men’s final.
