Chelsea take on Liverpool in the FA Cup final later this Saturday and tensions are already soaring.

In his pre-match press conference, Thomas Tuchel was asked about Pep Guardiola's comment on English fans and media favouring Liverpool.

The Chelsea boss replied: "You have the feeling the whole country loves Liverpool so if Chelsea are the bad guys [in the final] then no problem.

"We take that role, we don’t want to have the sympathy of the country, we want to have the trophy."

That's a stern message to Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool, who have fallen three points behind City in the Premier League race.

Both sides have two games to go before 2021/22 ends and the Reds also have an exciting Champions League final with Real Madrid coming up.
