This season, the final match between Chelsea and Liverpool will be repeated for the second time through the 2021-2022 FA Cup, held at Wembley Stadium, London, Saturday 14 May 2022, starting kick-off at 4.45 pm local time. Previously, the Reds won the EFL Cup title from Chelsea after winning 11-10 on penalties in the final last February.
The last time the same pair of teams met in a League Cup and FA Cup final in a season was in 1993 between Arsenal and Sheffield Wednesday. At that time, the Gunners won both trophies with 2-1 wins despite going through extra time in the FA Cup.
For Thomas Tuchel, this is an opportunity to present a domestic title for Chelsea after the former PSG coach has been at Stamford Bridge for 18 months. At the same time, Tuchel has managed to bring the Blues to glory in European competition by winning the Champions League last season, UEFA Super Cup, and even the FIFA World Club Cup.
On the first occasion when they met in the EFL Cup final, Romelu Lukaku and co had to admit Liverpool’s superiority after goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga failed to tear the Reds’ goal in a penalty shootout. However, both teams played equally strong for 120 minutes without a goal.
For Chelsea, it is not difficult to put 100 percent focus on this final game, considering they are no longer involved in the hunt for another trophy. After running in the Champions League this season and stalling in the quarter-finals after losing 5-4 on aggregate to Real Madrid, they now only need to secure third place in the Premier League to get a ticket to the UCL next season.
But not so for Liverpool. Jurgen Klopp’s men are still in fierce competition for three titles – facing Chelsea in the FA Cup, Real Madrid in the Champions League, and fighting for the top spot in the Premier League with formidable rivals Manchester City.

Chelsea FC vs Liverpool FC Head-to-Head
To realize the dream of winning quadruple or four titles at once this season, Mohamed Salah and his colleagues must not lose in their last four games. After facing Chelsea, Liverpool must maintain their chance of winning the domestic league title through matches against Southampton and Wolverhampton Wanderers before meeting Real Madrid.
As Chelsea progressed to the FA Cup final by beating Crystal Palace 2-0 in the semifinals, Liverpool had to face the ferocity of Manchester City before snatching a 3-2 victory through Sadio Mane’s brace coupled with Ibrahima Konate’s early goal.
Liverpool has led by a head-to-head record in their last seven cross-competition meetings with Chelsea with three wins, two draws and two defeats. But the Reds haven’t won the FA Cup in the previous 16 years since 2006, while Chelsea has won the competition eight times, including in 2018, beating Manchester United 1-0 in the final.
