The 2021/22 FA Cup final takes place today as Chelsea host Liverpool at Wembley Stadium.
Liverpool came out on top in the Carabao Cup final in February following a dramatic penalty shootout that finished 11-10 in their favour, after Blues keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga missed a decisive spot kick.
Despite a goalless scoreline after extra time, goals were disallowed on several occasions in that encounter, with Liverpool’s Joel Matip having a header ruled out for a foul and offside, while Chelsea had the ball in the back of the net three times, but all were ruled out for offside.
All three of the previous meetings between the sides ended in a stalemate, featuring 1-1 and 2-2 results at Anfield and Stamford Bridge in the Premier League, as well as the 0-0 scoreline after extra time in the Carabao Cup final.
ITV’s coverage begins at 3.45pm with Mark Pougatch, Joe Cole, Roy Keane, Ian Wright, Robbie Fowler and Laura Woods. Match commentary comes from Sam Matterface and Lee Dixon, with reports from Gabriel Clarke.
Highlights will be shown on BBC One at 12.20am (sun morn).
