Chelsea taken on relegated Portsmouth in the FA Cup Final at Wembley this afternoon. Although everyone is backing Chelsea to blast past Pompy and win easily with several goals, our prediction is for a tighter game that could potentially turn into an absolute shocker.
There are a lot of interesting connections for this game as Portsmouth’s head coach Avram Grant was in charge of Chelsea and lead them to their single Champions League final, lost against Man Utd on penalties. A lot of people considered his sacking by Abramovic as one of the Russian billionaire’s biggest mistakes because although Grant might not be such a high profile coach with tens of trophies to his name, he still is one of the managers s in the game right now.
Had Pompy not been taken all these points because of their debt issues, the side would have survived in the Premier League and what they have to be congratulated on is the bravery and dignity in the way they ended the season even though they were already doomed for the Championship next season. Portsmouth deserve a lot of credit for their efforts this season and playing the final today gives them the opportunity to win the oldest trophy in club football – the FA Cup.
