Liverpool legend John Aldridge is happy to have Chelsea in the FA Cup final.

Current manager Kenny Dalglish presided over the last three of those victories which all came at Stamford Bridge.

"I'm not just saying this, but before the game I felt Tottenham would pose a bigger threat than Chelsea, and I would rather take on Roberto Di Matteo's side than Harry Redknapp's," Aldridge wrote in the Liverpool Echo. "Tottenham have had the sign over us in recent meetings, whereas we seem to get the better of Chelsea when we meet.

"It's hard to measure, but it definitely plays a part. We saw that with Everton on Saturday. I think Liverpool FC can go into the FA Cup final very confident.

"On a level playing field, you have to fancy Liverpool's chances."
