“More or less the same characteristics”

Chelsea and Liverpool are set to face each other again in the FA Cup final at Wembley Stadium later today.

Before the encounter, Blues defender Cesar Azpilicueta pointed to similarities between Jurgen Klopp’s three attacking players, Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Luis Diaz.

The trio have impressed with their performances in recent weeks and are expected to feature in today’s Chelsea squad.

Cesar Azpilicueta has observed that all three attacking players enjoy spending time in the box and creating lots of chances. The Spaniard told talkSPORT:

“They are the type of striker who runs a lot, presses, attacks on the wide. Every chance they get, they want to move forward, they want to stay in the box, they want to create opportunities. “

It goes without saying that Liverpool’s three attacking players are prime examples of modern wingers. They like to break through from the flanks, torturing opposing defences while scoring and creating chances.

Cesar Azpilicueta can’t help but compare this trio to the mainstream wingers he faced early in his career. He observes:

“Back in the day, there were more wingers. I have faced more one-on-one. They want more crosses. The wingers now have more strikers. They want to attack the ball and create chances. “

The Chelsea defender added.

“On the Liverpool side, the different options they have, more or less the same characteristics. They want to attack the front line and the trio (Salah, Mane, Diaz) want to create opportunities. ”

🗣 “Chelsea may not be as fluid and fluid and may not be as vibrant all the time as Liverpool, but they attack”

The two clubs have clashed twice in the Premier League this season, with both meetings ending in draws. Liverpool and Chelsea also faced off in the EFL Cup final in February, a match the Reds won via penalty shootout.

Having lost the EFL Cup to the Reds this season, Thomas Tuchel’s men will be looking forward to a claimed victory at Wembley today.
