Chelsea 2Ramires 11′, Drogba 52′ Liverpool 1Carroll 64′
Chelsea take advantage of a lackluster Liverpool in the opening hour and hang on late to win the
first of their two cup finals. Liverpool were as good late as they were horrible early, and while
the influence of Andy Carroll and general urgency saved a little bit of pride, their late
improvements serve mostly as a damning indictment of a club that, while content to talk about
progress, made many of the same mistakes from top to bottom that we've seen all season.
