Liverpool and Chelsea prepare for FA Cup Final at Wembley in May
Date Posted: 20/04/12
The winner of the FA Cup will be decided when Liverpool and Chelsea meet at Wembley stadium next month in the final.
Liverpool fans travelling down from Merseyside may want to book London hotels close to Wembley Stadium for Saturday, May 12th where they can celebrate or mourn the result of the match.
Chelsea defeated Tottenham Hotspur 5-1 last Sunday to earn their place in the final. However, the game was marred with controversy as the Blues were awarded a goal when the ball did not cross the line. At the time the game was only 1-1.
Liverpool defeated Everton in a classic Merseyside derby that saw Andy Carroll clinch a winner in the 87th minute after the Reds clawed their way back from 1-0 down.
Neither side have had a great season, with Liverpool languishing in 8th after a terrible run of games since January and Chelsea fighting for fourth to stay in the Champion’s League next season. It is therefore a very important fixture for both clubs as they try to salvage something this year, and should be a fabulous encounter, even for neutral fans.
