It is the 141st final of the Football Association Challenge Cup (FA Cup), and the showpiece match of English football's major cup competition, organized by the Football Association (FA).

In the 2022 FA Community Shield, they will meet the Premier League champions unless they are also champions, in which case the losing team would face the Premier League champions.

In the fifth round, they defeated Norwich City at home. In the quarter-final, they defeated Nottingham Forest at home. In the semi-final, they defeated Manchester City. The semi-final was held in a neutral location.

The absence of Mateo Kovacic, who was the victim of a terrible tackle from Leeds' Daniel James on midweek, will be Chelsea's main concern. Tuchel has not ruled out the possibility of the Croatian playing in the final despite his ongoing ankle problem. Jorginho, on the other hand, has returned and is expected to play, while N'Golo Kante's return will also be welcomed by the Blues. Romelu Lukaku's comeback has recently continued, and Tuchel was the first to accept the Belgian's current form may help him in the final. The following is a possible Chelsea lineup for the FA Cup final: James, Jorginho, Loftus-Cheek, Alonso; Mount; Havertz, Lukaku.

Liverpool has been fortunate in not having too many injury problems despite a hectic schedule. Firmino was named to the bench for Liverpool's game against Aston Villa, indicating that he may be well enough to play in the final, but Fabinho is likely to miss out, with Liverpool still having a lot of important games left this season. Caoimhin Kelleher did well in the Carabao Cup final, but Jurgen Klopp is expected to select Alisson tonight. Following a midweek break, Andy Robertson is expected to return to the left back position. Thiago Alcantara, Ibrahima Konate, Jordan Henderson, and Mohamed Salah were all rested in the midweek game versus Villa. Liverpool's starting lineup versus Chelsea may look like this: Salah, Mane, Diaz; Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Robertson; Keita, Henderson, Thiago More information is available at https://sportsbrief.com/football/liverpool/16800-fa-cup-final-chelsea-liverpools-quadruple-dreams-hunt-1st-trophy-season/.
