How to watch FA Cup final for free: Liverpool vs Chelsea TV channel, online live stream, kick-off time
Liverpool are back at Wembley this weekend, with Thomas Tuchel's Chelsea the opponents once again. The game will kick off at the later-than-usual time of 4.45pm.
The Reds rarely do things the easy way, and if they are to lift the cup they know they will face a tough test against a side they have drawn all three previous encounters with this campaign. Only penalties separated the two teams when they met in February's Carabao Cup final.
Today will also be only the second time in English football history that the same two sides have contested both domestic cup finals. Last time, Arsenal defeated Sheffield Wednesday in both finals during the 1992-93 season. Chelsea did, however, defeat Liverpool the last time Liverpool reached the FA Cup final in 2012.

What are the likely Liverpool and Chelsea line-ups?
Fabinho's absence is a huge blow to Liverpool who know that the game could well be won or lost in the middle of the park. Klopp is likely to use Henderson as a six with Keita and Thiago most likely to be given the nod either side of him.
Despite his Carabao Cup heroics, Caoimhin Kelleher is unlikely to play. Andy Roberton will also return to the starting eleven after being rested in the midweek victory over Aston Villa. Konate could also be given the nod over Matip having started all five rounds leading up to the final.
Chelsea, meanwhile, had midfield problems of their own. Mateo Kovacic was on the end of a dangerous challenge from Dan James and could miss out. Kante is touch-and-go with Tuchel saying he is "90% sure" that Jorginho and Ruben Loftus-Cheek will start.
Predicted Liverpool XI: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Robertson, Henderson, Keita, Thiago, Diaz, Mane, Salah
Predicted Chelsea XI: Mendy, James Azpilicueta, Silva, Rudiger, Alonso, Jorginho, Loftus-Cheek, Mount, Havertz, Lukaku
