Liverpool are in the FA Cup final for the first time since 2012 and will face Chelsea at Wembley this Saturday in an effort to win the most prestigious domestic cup competition for the 8th time.
The Reds have won 7 and lost 7 FA Cup finals, last lifting the Cup in 2006 after defeating West Ham on penalties at Cardiff. We lost the 2012 final vs. Chelsea, 2-1. Chelsea have won 8 finals and lost 7, with 7 of their victories coming in the past 25 years.

This season, Liverpool opened its Cup campaign with a 4-1 win over Shrewsbury Town. A 3-1 4th round win over Cardiff City followed. The 5th round saw us defeat Norwich City 2-1, with the quarterfinal bringing a 1-0 away win at Nottingham Forest. A 3-2 semifinal win at Wembley vs. Manchester City punched Liverpool's ticket to the final.
Our goalscorers in the competition thus far: Minamino (3), Fabinho (2), Mane (2), Jota (2), Konate, Elliott, Firmino, Gordon.
The team has already won the League Cup, is in the Champions League final and is still in the English Premier League title race, but Saturday will be the chance to win a trophy absent from our trophy intake for too long.
Wishing everybody a great day on Saturday and the chance to celebrate a big trophy win.
