2012 FA Cup Final Preview: Liverpool vs Chelsea

My Liverpool boys will today bid for their second trophy in 2012.

A lacklustre premiership bid sees them languishing in a lowly 8th position. The only target left is to finish above local rivals Everton in 7th with only 2 games remaining.

In recent times the number 1 priority of English clubs has been to finish in the top 4 and to secure a Champions League place as this generates significantly more money than winning domestic cups.

However, having already won the League Cup adding another piece of silverware would make this a successful campaign if we beat Chelsea at Wembley Stadium. The winners also receive £1.8m and the losers get £900k.

This will be Liverpool's 14th FA Cup final having won the trophy 7 times already. It will be Chelsea's 11th final.

One of the biggest games on route for us was when we were drawn against Manchester United in the fourth round. It was an exciting game gripped also by the recent race row between Suarez and Evra. We took the lead through Agger but United equalised from Park Ji-Sung. It was great to give Man U a taste of their own medicine by getting a winner in the 88th minute when Kuyt scored. They normally do that to other teams..!!

Dalglish's reign has been in question after 13 defeats in the league this season. We all need this victory to show some kind of progress for Liverpool.

Good Luck The Reds...!!
