In the FA Cup Final, two Premier League behemoths will do battle as Chelsea faces Liverpool in a domestic cup challenge.

While Liverpool sits higher in the EPL table, the FA Cup doesn’t often go to the best team in all of England. for Chelsea, winning a trophy could put a bow on what’s been an up-and-down season.

Despite the Reds’ impressive back line, Thomas Tuchel believes his London club will have opportunities to score against Liverpool’s high line.

“They allow chances. I think they allow chances and we proved it – we had big chances in the Carabao Cup final. But I think they take the risk, it’s their approach,” he admitted. “They are the team who get strikers of other teams offside the most by far. So it’s not easy. The point is they only play this high line because they always have pressure on the ball.”

So, yes, the high line poses some challenges in ensuring those opportunities aren’t wasted, but with Tuchel’s tutelage and a week of prep, they ought to be prepared.

Chelsea will be desperate to end Liverpool’s bid for historic Quadruple – and have shown they can be match for the Reds

JURGEN KLOPP and Liverpool have the chance to tick off the second trophy in their hunt for an incredible Quadruple in today's FA Cup final.

And in a replay of February's Carabao Cup final, it's Chelsea who once again stand in their way.

For the first time in the history of football's oldest tournament two German managers will go head-to-head for the right to lift the trophy, with the winner set to be the first German boss ever to win it.

The Blues are featuring in their THIRD consecutive FA Cup final and will be desperate to lift the iconic trophy at Wembley today, having lost each of the previous two finals.

There is also added incentive considering the circumstances in which Thomas Tuchel's side were beaten by Liverpool to a Carabao Cup winners medal.

Despite being off the pace in the Premier League in recent weeks, Chelsea have already proven this season that they are more than a match for Klopp and Co.

Recent history proved there has been nothing between the sides this season - all three encounters this term ending in draws.

That includes the Carabao Cup final, Liverpool eventually running out winners on penalties after a thrilling 0-0 stalemate that saw Chelsea have THREE goals ruled out for offside.

Romelu Lukaku in particular was left fuming after having a goal chalked off by a matter of millimetres.

Chelsea therefore will be out for revenge this afternoon, 10 years on from the last meeting between the sides in the FA Cup final.

Goals from Ramires and Didier Drogba, plus one from Andy Carroll, helped the Blues to a 2-1 win that day.

A repeat result when referee Craig Pawson blows for full time at around 6.45pm would spark wild celebrations among the blue half of Wembley.

Especially after suffering the pain of watching the Reds lift the Carabao Cup two-and-a-half months ago at the same venue.

There would also be an added kick in being responsible in stopping Liverpool in their quest for an unprecedented Quadruple.

For Klopp's Reds though the game offers the club the chance to lift the FA Cup for the firs time since the "Gerrard final" against West Ham back in 2006.

Not only that, it would also make it two trophies for the season ahead of the Champions League final against Real Madrid on May 28.

And in the league the Anfield outfit are ready to pounce on any potential Manchester City slip-up.

There is the sense though that this one could be a season definer.

A win against Chelsea would be the perfect way to start potentially the most important two weeks in the club's history, while defeat could spark a downwards spiral that sees them end the season with just a Carabao Cup to show for it.

Either way, it should be an absolute cracker.
