Chelsea defender Thiago Silva may have dropped a huge team news hint ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup final against Liverpool at Wembley. The Blues will be looking to end their season on a high note, with England’s oldest competition left as their only potential piece of silverware.
It comes after a mixed campaign for the west London outfit, who crowned themselves Champions of the World, but have equally seen some of their other attempts at trophies fall flat. They managed to set the pace in the Premier League before a drop in form, while Real Madrid ended the side’s defence of the Champions League.
A run in the Carabao Cup took them to the final, where they happened to face Liverpool, but lost on penalties. They have the chance to enact revenge on the Reds in the FA Cup to earn their own trophy, while putting an end to their opponents’ unlikely quadruple hopes.
Winning the FA Cup at Wembley was something that Thiago Silva outlined as a dream ahead of the match. Speaking to the Telegraph, he said: “Wembley is known around the world for being the home of the English football team – it has a status like the Stade de France and the Maracana.
