Liverpool centre-half Jamie Carragher has labelled the FA Cup travel chaos 'out of order' and wants to bring the trophy back to Merseyside for the fans.

Maintenance work is set to take place on the rail network this weekend, affecting thousands of Liverpool fans who are planning to make the trip down to Wembley. The travel disruption could force supporters to stay overnight in London or risk lengthy delays on the roads and rail.

However, Carragher wants to win the trophy to make up for the problems, and should the Reds truimph over Chelsea, Carragher has pledged to dedicate the trophy to those who managed to make the trip down.

"It's wrong, it's out of order," Carragher told liverpoolfc.tv. "I know Liverpool supporters, my own family and friends, will get there somehow, but it's been made doubly difficult for them, so hopefully we can get the result and that will make up for it."

Victory over Chelsea would see Kenny Dalglish's side claim their second trophy of the season, and Carragher believes that would represent a successful season.

While Liverpool have struggled for consistency in the Premier League, they have looked a different side in the knock-out competitions and Carragher wants the trophies and medals to look back on at the end of his career.

"We've been in three competitions this season, if we win two I think it's a great season. We've given the supporters something to shout about and trips to Wembley - that's something we haven't had for a few years."

Chelsea have been in excellent form recently and come into the final off the back of a 6-1 demolition of QPR and confidence-boosting semi-final victory over Champions League favourites Barcelona.
