While league form counts for little in an FA Cup final, it is surely worth noting that Liverpool sit 16 points clear of their London rivals in the Premier League table and Jurgen Klopp's side are understandably highly fancied to lift the cup.

Chelsea come into the game off the back of some poor results and will have to raise their performance level if they are to claim the trophy for the first time since 2018.
