Chelsea FA Cup Odds

In total Chelsea have appeared in 10 FA Cup Finals, winning six. They have an excellent recent record in the competition, having won the famous trophy five times in the last 15 years, including three in the last five years. Following their semi-fina victory over Tottenham, Chelsea have been installed as the narrow favourites in the FA Cup Odds.

The Blues were drawn at home to Championship side Portsmouth in this season's third round in a repeat of the 2009/10 Final which Chelsea won 1-0. The match wasn't as close this time round as Chelsea ran out 4-0 winners. In the fourth round they beat QPR, before beating Birmingham City in a fifth round replay. They were too strong for Leicester City in the quarter-finals and thumped London rivals Tottenham 5-1 in the semis.

Chelsea will now play Liverpool in the FA Cup Final on Saturday 5th May.
