Chelsea sets up FA Cup final showdown against Liverpool
Apr 18, 2022
Chelsea are through to the FA Cup final for the third consecutive season.
They booked their place with a 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace thanks to second-half goals from Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Mason Mount.
The Blues are now the first team since Arsenal in the early 2000’s to make three FA Cup finals in a row.
They will next face Liverpool, in what will be a rematch of the EFL Cup final earlier this year.
Karim Benzema scored an injury-time winner as Real Madrid staged a remarkable comeback against Sevilla.
Real were two goals down at half-time…but battled back to win 3-2.
It leaves Real 15-points clear at the top of La Liga…with six games remaining.
Liverpool are reportedly prepared to offer Sadio Mane a new contract.
The Senegal international – whose current deal expires in a little over a year – is also believed to be keen on remaining at Anfield.
However, any deal will depend on how much money Mane is asking for, with the club reluctant to offer a massive deal to a player who’s already 30 years old.
Stefanos Tsitsipas has defended his Monte Carlo tennis Masters title…with a straight sets win over Alejandro Davidovich Fokina.
This is Tsitsipas’ first title in 11 months, and his eighth overall on the ATP Tour.
