      Pre-Match: Liverpool v Chelsea, 141st FA Cup Final; 4:45 pm, Saturday, May 14

      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.

      🔴 FA Cup Final 2012 Thread

      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.

      I hope Taki gets a few minutes at the end when we 3-0 up and Jürgen just wants him to harass every Chelsea player on the pitch.

      Scored some vitally important goals for us in this in the Cups, this season.

      used to be the best day of the year as a kid TV would be on early and wouldnt move all day regardless of who was in the Final.
      This is the only trophy Jürgen needs to complete his full house. Not sure where Chelsea are at the moment and with Rudiger announcing his  move to RM would you start him its very disrespectful to his team mates.
      The lads have tasted victory at Wembley they will want this one to tick another game off.

      Fabinho is a big miss.
      The league cup final was too open for my liking. Chelsea had some seriously good chances and fluffed them.

      Will need to be on our game that’s for sure.

      Without fab I would go for ...

      Allison
      TAA
      Robertson
      VVD
      Matip

      Henderson
      Keita
      Thiago

      Diaz
      Mane
      Salah

      On a side note we need salah to dust off his cobwebs and find form.

      On the money UB. Yes we are misfiring a bit but we can dominate this game. Pity about Fab.

      Definitely the team I’d start if Fab isn’t available. Hopefully a drama less 2-0 win, grab the trophy and continue with the League.

      My heart can’t take these nail biting games any longer.

      Am I mad for thinking if Fab's out we should be playing Milner somewhere in that midfield? An hour of him and then sub on Keita? We were vulnerable against these in the League Cup final and they got through our midfield quite easily (although Thiago wasn't playing either).

      Toss up between Konate or Matip alongside Virgil? I'd lean towards Matip as I imagine they'll go with Havertz down the middle.

      Boss said Fab feels "positive" so may be he still has a chance but could be they won't risk him.

      Going to be an absolute battle. Just praying we come out as the winners. Need front three to be lethal when they get their chances. Going to be another stress, high blood pressure game.

      Certainly deserve to pick up more silverware the way the players have performed over a very long season. Let's start off on Saturday by lifting the  FA cup at Wembley. Hope everybody has a great day wherever they are watching the final.
