FA Cup Final - Football: All You Need to Know

Liverpool and Chelsea will battle it out at Wembley Stadium on the 14th May in the England FA Cup 2021/22 final.

The Reds already have the League Cup in the trophy cabinet this season and they are still on course for an unprecedented four trophies, having also recently reached the Champions League final.

Jurgen Klopp's men are also still battling away with Man City for the Premier League spoils and the Merseyside outfit can be backed at 4/7 to lift the FA Cup on Saturday.

The clash at Wembley Stadium is Chelsea's only hope of ending the campaign with some silverware and the Blues are priced at 11/8 to go one better than the back-to-back runners-up finishes they have had in this tournament in the past two years.

When is the England FA Cup 2021/22 final?

The FA Cup usually takes place in May, the final month of the Premier League season, and this year's edition will be played on Saturday, 14th May, kicking off at 16:45.

Where is the England FA Cup 2021/22 final?

The FA Cup will be played at Wembley Stadium - which is owned by the governing body of English football, the Football Association - in north-west London.

With 90,000 seats, it is the largest stadium in the UK and hosts major football matches, including home games of the England national football team.

This year's final will be the 16th consecutive time the FA Cup final has been played at the new Wembley Stadium, which opened in 2007 on the site of the original Wembley Stadium which was demolished from 2002 to 2003.

From 2001 to 2006, the FA Cup final was held at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, with Liverpool beating West Ham on penalties after a dramatic 3-3 draw between the two sides in the last of those, which was also the last time the Reds lifted the trophy.

Can I watch the England FA Cup 2021/22 final?

The FA Cup final is available to watch on BBC One and ITV, which are both terrestrial channels, while the match can also be live streamed on BBC iPlayer.

It can also be viewed on the bet356 website on the Sports Live Streaming platform.

How many times has the England FA Cup final taken place?

Prior to this year's tournament, the FA Cup has been held 140 times, having first taken place in the 1871/72 season when Wanderers beat Royal Engineers 1-0 at the Kensington Oval.

Until 1999, a draw in the final would result in the match being replayed at a later date. Since then, the final has always been decided on the day, with extra-time and penalties if needed.

There have only ever been two penalty shoot-outs needed to determine a winner. In 2005, Arsenal overcame Man Utd before Liverpool beat West Ham on penalties a year later.

Who has won the England FA Cup on the most occasions?

Arsenal have won the FA Cup a record 14 times, with the club's first success coming in 1930 and the most recent triumph coming in 2021.

The Gunners have appeared in the final 21 times, last losing at this stage of the tournament in 2001 when going down 2-1 to Liverpool, who have lifted the trophy seven times.

Man Utd are second in the all-time list, having won the FA Cup 12 times, while Chelsea and Tottenham have both claimed the spoils on eight occasions.
