FA Cup final: Chelsea boosted as star player returns amid Liverpool injury blow


Chelsea have been handed a double boost ahead of the FA Cup final against Liverpool

Liverpool take on Chelsea in the final of the FA cup at Wembley Stadium on Saturday afternoon. The  Reds saw off Manchester City in their semi-final, while Chelsea beat Crystal Palace.

Jurgen Klopp's side go into the game on the back of a rather hectic 2-1 win over Aston Villa. That Premier League victory came at the cost of midfielder Fabinho, who has picked up a hamstring injury.

The Brazilian has already been ruled out for the FA Cup final, and is facing a race against time to be fit for the Champions League final at the end of the month, and for Chelsea, that is a welcome boost.

The Blues now have N'Golo Kante's return to training as another edge over the Reds in the midfield.

The France international had missed the London club last three league fixtures with an unspecified injury, but appears to be back in contention to feature against Jurgen Klopp's men.

Thomas Tuchel's side will look to recover from the Carabao Cup final lost to the Reds in the closing of February when both sides meet on Saturday.
