Drogba to score at any time against Liverpool – 21/10

The 33-year-old has an impressive record against Liverpool since joining Chelsea in 2004. The Ivory Coast striker has enjoyed some great battles with Reds defender Jamie Carragher but Drogba has still managed to score seven times. So the Tipster’s opening bet for this FA Cup final special edition is Drogba to score at any time at solid odds of 21/10.

Chelsea to beat Liverpool – 7/5

Chelsea’s record in the FA Cup has been exceptional over the past five seasons, winning the trophy three times. Despite Chelsea’s midweek defeat by Newcastle, the Blues’ turnaround under Roberto Di Matteo has been remarkable. Liverpool, meanwhile have suffered defeats in seven of their last 11 league games. So Chelsea to beat Liverpool on Saturday is a sensible bet at 7/5.

Chelsea to beat Liverpool by a single goal – 3/1

Two of the last three meetings between Chelsea and Liverpool have been decided by a single goal. The Blues have won 15 of their last 18 games in this competition and are the top scorers in the competition this term. The last four finals have been decided by a solitary strike in normal time, so Chelsea to beat Liverpool by one goal is a great bet at 3/1.

Under 2.5 goals in Chelsea v Liverpool – 13/20

Four of the last five FA Cup finals have finished with under 2.5 goals, including Chelsea’s victories over Manchester United and Portsmouth in 2006 and 2010 respectively. Furthermore, five of the last six games between Chelsea and Liverpool have seen less than three goals scored. Therefore, the Tipster reckons under 2.5 goals on Saturday at Wembley is a solid bet at 13/20.

The long shot: Chelsea to beat Liverpool 1-0 – 13/2

Chelsea have won the FA Cup on six previous occasions and four times in the last 12 years. The Blues beat Aston Villa, United and Portsmouth by a narrow 1-0 victory in three of the finals, while running out 2-1 winners over Everton in 2009. With all that in mind, the Tipster’s long-range effort for this edition is for Chelsea to beat Liverpool 1-0 at the tempting odds of 13/2.
