Chelsea will dominate Saturday's FA Cup final against a struggling Liverpool squad that is having real troubles scoring goals on a consistent basis.

After defending very strongly against arguably the best attacking team in all of Europe in Barcelona during their Champions League semifinal triumph, the Blues won't have too much trouble defending a Reds team that has scored more than two goals in just three of its last 14 games.

Even with David Luiz and Gary Cahill unable to play at Wembley because of injury, the Chelsea defense will be strong since Branislav Ivanovic and captain John Terry will be available.

The Chelsea attack will be going up against a Liverpool defense that has been strong all season in Premier League play, but many of the Blues' top forwards are in top form right now.

Didier Drogba has played very well recently, especially in the Champions League, and Fernando Torres notched his first hat trick since 2009 last weekend against Queens Park Rangers.

The strong Chelsea attack has helped the squad achieve a 3-1-2 over the last six games, with matches against Barcelona (twice), Tottenham and Newcastle during that stretch.

The Reds are having difficulties scoring, even against inferior teams such as Norwich City, and against a talented back four of Chelsea they will certainly have a tough time finding the back of the net as well.

Luis Suarez hasn't scored at the pace he was earlier in the season and Andy Carroll continues to be a massive disappointment. Liverpool will need to score three or four goals to win this final, and I cannot see that happening.

With Chelsea looking to win what could be the club's only trophy of the season, the Blues will be highly motivated to destroy Liverpool in this match.

Chelsea will defeat Liverpool 4-2 in an exciting FA Cup final on Saturday for the club's fourth league cup title of the 2000s.
