FA CUP FINAL LIVE: All the build-up and full match coverage from Wembley of Liverpool v Chelsea READ MORE: Liverpool line-ups as Joel Matip decision made and Fabinho replacement named for FA Cup final v Chelsea But for the thousands of Reds fans who will make the journey down to Wembley hoping to see their side lift what would be an eighth FA Cup, and for the players who have been a part of the journey and are 90 minutes away from potentially getting their hands on one of football's most famous pieces of silverware, it would be tough to make the case that the FA Cup doesn't mean what it once did.

Having defeated the London side on penalties to lift the Carabao Cup back in February, Jurgen Klopp and Thomas Tuchel's teams will duel once more at Wembley Stadium with the prize of the world's most famous domestic cup competition up for grabs - the FA Cup.

Liverpool will be looking to make it a domestic final double when they take on Chelsea later today.

The relevance of the FA Cup has been called into question in more recent years, with the increasing power of the Premier League and Champions League meaning that clubs have opted to place their focus on the most lucrative path when it comes to selecting their teams, with the FA Cup's lustre, it has been claimed, not being what it once was.

That takes the potential value of Liverpool getting all the way to the final, through prize money, TV money and gate receipts combined, to a figure in the region of £10m.

On Liverpool's FA Cup journey so far they have beaten Shrewsbury Town, Cardiff City, Norwich City, Nottingham Forest and Manchester City.

However, profit is for owners and trophies are for fans, and the value of what success in the FA Cup will mean to the supporters of whoever emerges victorious will far outweigh the value that is actually placed upon that success in monetary terms.
