Chelsea and Liverpool have never faced each other in an FA Cup final, but they’ve both got plenty of experience when it comes to English football’s showpiece occasion.
Liverpool v Newcastle 1974
It was the early 70s and Liverpool were beginning to stamp their authority all over English football. Kevin Keegan was in his pomp, sideburns flowing in the spring breeze, and scored a famous double to propel his side to victory.
Liverpool v Wimbledon 1988
Kenny Dalglish’s men were the pass and move maestros of English football. The Crazy Gang (pictured left) were, well, crazy. There could be only one winner. Cue a titanic upset.
Liverpool v Everton 1989
Ian Rush pounded Everton dreams into the Wembley turf in this enthralling FA Cup ding-dong, with an injury-time double.
Liverpool v Arsenal 2001
Remember when Michael Owen was the best goal poacher in Europe? In fact, remember Michael Owen? Watch him at his best grabbing two late match-winning goals.
Liverpool v West Ham 2006
Probably the best final to grace the Millennium Stadium, West Ham were seconds form glory when Steven Gerrard powered in a shot from 3,000 yards. Penalties and Hammers’ tears followed.
Chelsea v Leeds 1970
After a 2-2 draw at Wembley the teams met at Old Trafford for a replay that involved more violence than a cage fight. Chelsea delivered the knockout blow in extra time.
Chelsea v Manchester United 1994
Chelsea succumbed to the first great Manchester United side of the Fergie era. They were overwhelmed by an onslaught from Ryan Giggs, Eric Cantona, Mark Hughes and, er, Brian McClair.
Chelsea v Middlesbrough 1997
Roberto Di Matteo (pictured left) smashed what was then the fastest goal in FA Cup final history, as the Blues lifted the trophy for the first time since 1970.
Chelsea v Manchester United 2007
The first final to be played at the new Wembley stadium pitted England’s two best sides against each other. Didier Drogba managed to stay on his feet long enough to score an extra-time winner.
Chelsea v Everton 2009
The Blues got some of their own quick-scoring medicine when Di Matteo’s 1997 effort was eclipsed by Louis Saha’s 25th second opener. Unfortunately for Everton, this only made Chelsea angry.
