Chelsea vs Liverpool
The FA Cup Final
4:45 pm UK Saturday

These two clubs have met thrice this season already and all three of those games ended in a draw. Furthermore, even after extra time, these teams were not able to be separated and only Kepa’s missed penalty was able to do so. Hence, this content is likely to end in another draw in the regulation period.
Despite three draws between these clubs, Liverpool have by far been the better club. The club with their unparalleled mentality has made it to three finals this season. I have backed Klopp’s men to somehow find a way to get things done and raise the trophy. Especially, considering the disappointing rune the Blues have had over the last month.
