Chelsea vs Liverpool: Azpilicueta message to Liverpool ahead of FA Cup final

Chelsea captain, Cesar Azpilicueta has vowed that the Blues will not lose the FA Cup final the way they did in the Carabao Cup in February.

He said the Carabao Cup disappointment will serve as fuel when Chelsea faces Liverpool in the FA Cup final on Saturday.

Thomas Tuchel’s side and the Reds met in the Carabao Cup final earlier in the season, with the Blues losing out 11-10 on penalties at Wembley.

Chelsea could not make it to the Champions League final and have also no hope of winning the Premier League this season but could claim the FA Cup, being their last chance to pick up a domestic trophy before the end of the campaign.

The west London side has already won the European Super Cup and the Club World Cup, this season.

Azpilicueta is determined to see Chelsea come out on top against Jurgen Klopp’s team.

He told talkSPORT “When you lose you want to get back and have the chance to win.

“It’s true that it’s the same opposition, it’s Liverpool again and when you arrive in the final there are two teams and you want to be on the winning side. You want to win it.

Chelsea vs Liverpool: Referee for FA Cup final confirmed

Craig Pawson has been confirmed as the referee for Saturday’s FA Cup final between Chelsea and Liverpool.

The two Premier League heavyweights will clash at Wembley, seeking to win the second domestic title on offer.

The Reds are still in the hunt for an unprecedented quadruple, as they are still in the running to win the Premier League and Champions League, having won the Carabao Cup already.

If they are able to achieve the feat, they will become the first English side in history to perform a clean sweep on all four major honours.

Liverpool’s record in games officiated by Pawson is remarkably strong, having lost just six of the 31 matches the 43-year-old has officiated.

However, the most recent of those defeats had Klopp hopping with rage after he felt a series of contentious decisions went against his side.
