Chelsea vs Liverpool
England – FA Cup
Date: Saturday, 14 May 2022
Kick-off at 16:45 UK/ 17:45 CET
Venue: Wembley Stadium.
Liverpool just might have let their quadruple slip through their hands. They were on course to usurp Manchester City from the top of the table in the Premier League, but the Reds were held to a draw in their own backyard by Tottenham.
Now all they have remaining is the FA Cup and Champions League and we can count on them to give their absolute best on the pitch to bring these two titles to Anfield.
But they will have a familiar rival waiting for them in the final, in the form of current European champions Chelsea. Note that these two had locked horns in the EFL cup a few months back and then Jurgen Klopp’s men managed to secure the win via penalties.
By all means, the Blues will be waiting for a chance to avenge themselves, and they just might not get a better opportunity than this.
Count on a fierce encounter to take place between the two teams this Saturday. This has also turned into a matter of pride for these two heavyweights of the English football scene.
Moreover, goals have always come in plenty whenever these two squads have locked horns with each other in the past. Expect more of the same to happen this weekend as well as the two gun for triumph in the FA Cup.

While they surely will be disappointed in not being able to retain their European crown, they will be determined to compensate themselves at least with the FA Cup.
