FA Cup: top vs bottom

Friday, 14th May 2010 11:32pm
Its the FA Cup but in Premiership terms its an encounter between the top team versus the bottom team as Chelsea face Portsmouth.

Chelsea finished top of the league whilst their rivals with their nine point deduction finished bottom and the two teams face up in the FA Cup final.

Portsmouth would still have finished bottom if the nine deducted points were reinstated and therefore its a true top vs bottom contest.

In the league, Pompey won just seven matches compared with the champions who won 27 matches. Pompey lost 24 of its matches compared to Chelsea who lost six matches.

But this is a Cup game and therefore the league position may be irrelevant and whoever is better on the day will take the Cup home.

So here is a comparison of the two teams league performance over the course of the season:
