RDM 4-7 for Blues boss job after Cup final victory
CHELSEA survived a spirited late comeback from Liverpool to win 2-1 in Saturday’s FA Cup final atWembley.
The Blues – 5-1 favourites for the trophy at the beginning of the
season but available to back at 13-2 after the draw for the third
round was made – took a 2-0 lead through Ramires,who had been 20-1 to score first, and Didier Drogba.
Drogba’s record fourth goal in FA Cup finals looked to have
ended Liverpool’s challenge but substitute Andy Carroll sparked the Reds’ recovery with a 64th-minute strike.
Carroll thought he’d headed a late equaliser but Petr Cech clawed the ball back and Chelsea held out to claim the trophy. Ladbrokes make the striker 1-3 to be in England’s squad for Euro 2012 and just 2-5 to start the first group game against France.
Chelsea can also look forward to the Champions League final against Bayern Munich and interim manager Roberto Di Matteo cut from 4-5 to 4-7 by Ladbrokes to get the job on a permanent basis.
