WHO SAYS ROMANCE is dead?
Liverpool and Chelsea face off in the FA Cup final for the first time at — the admittedly weird time of — 5.15pm.
Didier Drogba will likely get the nod to lead the line ahead of former Kop favourite Fernando Torres while the likes of Gary Cahill and David Luiz are struggling with hamstring injuries and missed training yesterday, meaning Roberto di Matteo’s defensive options may be narrowed.
Long-term midfield absentees Lucas Leiva and Charlie Adam are Liverpool’s only injury concerns however though Kenny Dalglish slammed the players he picked in the defeat to Fulham for not taking the opportunity to push for selection in Saturday’s final.
Dalglish selected a second-string team with only Andy Carroll and Dirk Kuyt having a decent chance of starting against Chelsea. Striker Luis Suarez and captain Steven Gerrard are set to return after missing the game.
So, who do you reckon will come out on top? Let us know in the comment section below…
