    I don't expect there to be too much of goal spree. I hate the highline despite its huge success, gives me the nerves against low block teams.
    I expect Chelsea to be low block, so expect Trent to take the free kicks, and him to shoot anywhere but towards the goal

    Article:
    Fabinho absence a key blow

    Liverpool’s hopes of an unprecedented quadruple have taken several knocks in the past week, but they can significantly reduce the odds against them notching up a pretty decent treble with a win against Chelsea in the FA Cup final. Their chances would have been greatly increased had Fabinho been available but the Brazilian limped out of their win over Aston Villa with a soft tissue injury after 30 minutes and Liverpool immediately looked far more vulnerable. He’s not expected to be back until the Champions League final. A vital presence in Liverpool’s midfield, Chelsea’s forwards will seriously fancy their chances of breaching Liverpool’s rearguard with the usual sentry not in front of it on patrol.

    Article:
    Lukaku’s low return against Liverpool

    Back in form with three goals in his past two games, Romelu Lukaku has given Thomas Tuchel plenty to think about ahead of the Cup final. While it is hardly the most scientific approach to team selection, Chelsea’s manager might want to bear in mind that Lukaku’s record against Saturday’s opponents is really not very good. In 19 appearances against Liverpool during his time at West Brom, Everton and Chelsea, he has only scored five goals and finished on the winning side three times. It is a record that is unlikely to inspire much in the way of confidence when the big decision is made

    "and Liverpool immediately looked far more vulnerable"


    blatantly not true. It was the opposite.

    By the way, @Red rose, even though at first glance this may seem like a bunch of posters making cruel and asinine jokes that exploit your fear of flying - in reality this is us actually showing our love and care by using Hal’s patented and scientifically proven anti-jinx method to make your flight the safest one ever.

    It will probably work as well as our league campaign - 2 losses out of 36 ain’t bad!

    Kante and Kovacevic were out, but are now both likely to make the game. Horse placenta at its best.

    Article:
    Chelsea midfielder Mateo Kovacic will try to force himself into enough fitness to play in the FA Cup final. Blues boss Thomas Tuchel has confirmed Kovacic will attempt to play through the pain in Saturday’s Wembley clash with Liverpool. The Croatian hobbled out of Wednesday’s 3-0 Premier League win at Leeds after copping a nasty tackle from Dan James.

    “We will try it today actually, which is pretty surprising news where we are in the situation where we can try it,” said Tuchel. “Mateo wants to try it and the medical department gave the green light to try it. The ligament is anyway stretched from the last incident, so there’s no new injury but heavy pain, and it’s heavily swollen.

    We’re hoping that maybe time is enough that he makes it. But we will try it in training and then we will know about it some time after that.

    Great timing, Timo! One thing Chelsea are definitely blessed with is outspoken strikers.

    Like I said before, I think a heavily strapped Kovacic playing will work in our favour first half (before he hobbles off).
