Thomas Tuchel says he is happy for Chelsea to be the "Bad guys" of the FA Cup final if that's the way Jurgen Klopp wants it.

The Blues boss echoed the sentiment of Pep Guardiola who claimed that the whole country backs Liverpool on these showpiece occasions.

"There's nothing to be jealous of from my side, Klopp is a fantastic guy, funny guy, one of very, very best coaches in the world and that's what he does," Tuchel explained.

"When he trained Dortmund, the whole country loved Dortmund. So now he trains Liverpool and you have the feeling the whole country loves Liverpool."

Liverpool start as favourites with Chelsea facing late fitness tests on Mateo Kovacic and N'Golo Kante, but still Tuchel refuses to get caught up in the rhetoric.

"That's part of it, that's also like from where the sympathy comes. If you fight against it , like Pep has for many, many years, I can understand Pep's comments and that it sometimes feels like this."

"There are huge sympathies for Liverpool - I feel that as well, in the whole country. And I can understand it, I can understand it."
