Chelsea vs Liverpool FA Cup final kick-off time confirmed with late start despite NO Premier League games that day

CHELSEA and Liverpool’s FA Cup final will kick-off at 4.45pm despite NO Premier League games that day.

The Premier League rivals will meet in a rematch of their Carabao Cup final back at Wembley on May 14.

Liverpool, who won that match in May on penalties, kicked off at 3.30pm in the semi-final against Manchester City.

But the final will kick off one hour and 45 minutes later, even though all Premier League matches have been moved to Sunday.

An early kick-off time has been ruled out, even though last season’s final which Leicester won started even later at 5.30pm.

Liverpool edged out Chelsea in a dramatic 11-10 shootout loss last time out, now Mason Mount is ready for revenge.

Mount said: “It’s definitely time for us to win a final at Wembley.

“For me it is five finals, so we have to put the pressure on us to step up. We remember those defeats and now it is time to get payback.”

Manager Thomas Tuchel responded: “Good. Yeah, good! Of course we feel it.

“The Carabao Cup final was so close; it wasn’t last season or two years ago.


“It was a few weeks ago we lost in the same stadium on a pretty similar occasion.

“Now it is an even bigger cup. Of course, it’s a traditional cup, it has these similarities and of course, it seems like you can come back.

“That’s what it’s about in sports: if you lost against a team on such short notice it feels a bit like, ‘Come on, let’s turn things around quickly’.”
