Drogba 10-1 to claim FA Cup man of the match
CHELSEA just edge FA Cup favouritism in the final against Liverpool but bookmakers cannot separate three players in a wide-open Man of the Match market.
Didier Drogba, Luis Suarez and Steven Gerrard are co-favourites at 10-1 with BetVictor to pick up the award at Wembley with Chelsea’s former Red Fernando Torres available at 12-1.
Andy Carroll can be backed at 14-1, the same prices as the Blues
veterans Frank Lampard and John Terry, who are aiming for a cup double with the Champions League final to come on May 19 against Bayern at the Allianz Arena in Munich’s own stadium.
Centre-backs Gary Cahill and David Luiz are sidelined for Chelsea, while boss RobertoDi Matteo must decide between Didier Drogba and Fernando Torres for the central striker role.
Charlie Adam and Lucas remain long-term absentees for Liverpool, who are set to recall a host of rested players for the final. Kenny Dalglish has a number of tactical decisions to ponder, including whether Andy Carroll starts and the possibility of a 3-5-2 shape.
