Game Preview

Four-time FA Cup winner Chelsea dramatically beat Arsenal in its semifinal match at Wembley to reach the oldest knockout competition in the world's final for the eighth time in the club's history.

With the Premier League just out of reach and their cruel exit from the Champions League, the Blues and manager Guus Hiddink will be putting their all into this one opportunity to claim some silverware and salvage something of their season.

Everton, a five-time FA Cup winner (last time in 1995), was a heavy underdog in its semifinal clash with Manchester United, but thanks to U.S. goalkeeper Tim Howard managed to oust the Red Devils in a thrilling penalty kick shootout.

The Toffees' 12th-ever final appearance, coach David Moyes will rely on his steady recipe of dogged defense and opportunistic attacking to once again try to knock out one of the 'Big Four' in the English game and claim this important trophy.
