Chelsea and Liverpool will meet in the FA Cup Final at Wembley Stadium on Saturday afternoon, as the Blues look to win their fifth league cup title since the start of the century.

Liverpool won the Carling Cup in February with a thrilling victory against Cardiff City after a penalty shootout but haven't won the FA Cup since Steven Gerrard led the club to a memorable win over West Ham United in 2006 after a penalty shootout.

Chelsea are in the Champions League Final later this month against German club Bayern Munich, which will be a very difficult match for them, so the Blues' best shot at a trophy this season is likely Saturday at Wembley.

Let's look at what you need to know so you don't miss a minute of the action.


Where: Wembley Stadium, London, England

When: Saturday, May 5 at 12:15 p.m. ET

Watch: Fox Soccer, Sky Sports 3D, ITV 1

Live Stream: Fox Soccer


Chelsea Player to Watch: Didier Drogba

Chelsea striker Didier Drogba is a big-match player and relishes the Wembley atmosphere.

Drogba scored the only goal of the 2007 FA Cup Final against Manchester United, and the only goal of the 2010 FA Cup Final against Portsmouth, so he knows what it takes to dominate when a trophy is at stake.

If Chelsea are to lift the league cup at Wembley, Drogba will need to make a strong impact on the game, and make the Liverpool back four work very hard to defend him.


Liverpool Player to Watch: Luis Suarez

Liverpool captain Steve Gerrard will be an important player against Chelsea but the performance of striker Luis Suarez will be the difference for the Merseyside club.

Suarez must lead a Reds attack that hasn't been in top goal-scoring form in recent weeks. He earned a hat trick against Norwich on April 28, and he will need to be that good at Wembley for Liverpool to beat a strong Chelsea side on Saturday.
