Kenny Dalglish's Liverpool and Roberto Di Matteo's Chelsea clash in the oldest competition in football at Wembley on Saturday for the 2012 FA Cup final.

Liverpool have enjoyed great success in cup competitions this season, having already won the Carling Cup, but have endured a poor league campaign.

Kenny Dalglish however insists winning on Saturday would make the season a success despite the fact the Reds could finish outside the top eight.

Andy Carroll could start on the substitutes bench for Liverpool, with Luis Suarez expected to start up front with Steven Gerrard supporting him in an attacking role.

Champions League finalists Chelsea are favourites going into the match following a remarkable turn of fortunes since Roberto Di Matteo took charge.

The Italian has only suffered two defeats in fifteen games and reach two cup finals, although Chelsea's hopes of top four league finish appear slim.

Di Matteo have dismissed the idea of resting players ahead of the Champions League final against munich, with the In form Fernando Torres to start up front.
