Joe Cole delivers his prediction for the FA Cup final between Chelsea and Liverpool

Joe Cole took out Chelsea to get his revenge on Liverpool by beating them in the FA Cup final.

Thomas Tuchel’s side will face Jurgen Klopp’s Red Devils in the FA Cup final at Wembley Stadium in London on Saturday.

The Blues have won two trophies this season, having won the UEFA Super Cup and the Club World Cup.

However, they fell right to the Red Devils in the League Cup final in February, when Liverpool beat them 11-10 on penalties.

It was a tit-for-tat encounter between the two English giants even though they were leading 0-0 after 120 minutes.

An equally exciting penalty shoot-out followed, with Chelsea substitute Kepa Arrizabalaga the only player to miss the penalty kick.

Joe Cole, who has previously played for both clubs, has predicted the Blues will be just behind Liverpool.

The former England winger beat the Blues to a 1-0 win thanks to Thomas Tuchel’s tactical approach.

Cole told JOE:

“I like Chelsea to win 1-0. Admittedly it’s my heart and not my head as Liverpool look impenetrable at the moment. “

“You see the way they play, they are a great team. But I think Thomas Tuchel might have something in his hand for this game so I’m going to Chelsea.”


Chelsea vs Liverpool will be a thrilling FA Cup final

In terms of the overall season and recent form, Chelsea does not seem to be a rival to Liverpool.

However, the Blues performed exceptionally well under Tuchel in the knockout stages. It was the skillful tactics from the German coach that helped them beat Manchester City 1-0 in the Champions League final last season.

In the League Cup final too, the Blues had more clear scoring opportunities than their opponents.

It has been a difficult season for the West London side both on and off the pitch and despite that, Tuchel has done something commendable.

The Blues will certainly have more motivation to win the FA Cup after missing out on the silver trophy last season against Leicester City.

On the other hand, Liverpool’s hopes now look bleak but they can still win the treble.

If they can win the FA Cup and Champions League after winning the League Cup, it will still be a season to remember forever for the Red Devils.
