Defender Jamie Carragher thinks the intensity of the rivalry between Liverpool and Chelsea has faded slightly in recent years but that will not prevent a fierce FA Cup final battle on Saturday.

From the middle part of the last decade there has been a glut of encounters between the two sides and Saturday's will be the 31st since the start of the 2004-05 season - and there is then a league match to follow on Tuesday.

"It (the rivalry) started six or seven years ago for different reasons," said the 34-year-old. "It is still a big rivalry but I think it had more to it then."
