'It's a dream': Mauricio Pochettino's brilliant response to trophy record ahead of Chelsea vs Liverpool final

The game is a rematch of both the Carabao and FA Cup finals of 2022, with Liverpool winning both on penalties. But Chelsea arrive at the final unbeaten in their last three games and looking for a statement win. Pochettino said when asked about what winning it would mean to him and his team: "It means a lot for us, the coaching staff to arrive in the final and to challenge a team like Liverpool and win our first title here. It's a dream for us, the coaching staff. We have 90 minutes to achieve that and we are going to fight. The team is ready. It's an amazing chance for us"

Wembley is a special place to play football but Chelsea have lost their last five cup finals there but Pochettino says its home to him because he played more games there from his time at Tottenham and created a bon with the people working there. 

He added: "Yes, it's a chance. For me and Jesus, it's like home because we play a lot there at Tottenham. After one year and a half there we created a very good bond between Wembley and the team. It's going to be special to play there. We are going to try and compete at our best and be better than Liverpool and deserve to win the trophy."
