Liverpool FA Cup Odds

Liverpool have won the prestigious trophy seven times, with only Man Utd, Arsenal and Tottenham winning more. Their last win cam in 2006 when they beat West Ham in a thrilling FA Cup Final at the Millenium Stadium. Steven Gerrard was the hero as twice he scored stunning goals to get The Reds back in the game. With nothing separating the teams the match went into penalties, which Liverpool won 3-1.

In the 2011/12 competition Liverpool began with a 5-1 thrashing of Oldham, before beating fierce rivals Man Utd in the fourth round. They then demolished Brighton in the fifth round and edged past Stoke in the last eight to set up a semi-final with Merseyside rivals Everton at Wembley Stadium. Despite going behind early on Liverpool bounced back to win the game 2-1, courtesy of a Luis Suarez equaliser and last-gasp Andy Carroll header.

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