LONDON - Tomorrow's FA Cup final gives Everton the chance to cap an impressive season with rare silverware while for Chelsea it offers little more than a minor consolation to a frustrating season.
Chelsea will want a rousing send-off for care-taker manager Guus Hiddink, but having lost so painfully to Barcelona in the Champions League semifinals and finishing third in the league, it will not be easy to motivate them. They bounced back from the Barcelona disappointment to hammer Arsenal 4-1 but Everton are a different prospect.
While not quite the "Dogs of War" who celebrated their narrow escape from relegation by harrying Manchester United into submission to win the final 14 years ago, they are still a fiercely competitive team.
Belgian Marouane Fellaini, with 13 yellow cards to his name in his first season of English football, Leon Osman, Steven Pienaar and captain Phil Neville do not appear to be a match for Frank Lampard, Michael Ballack and Michael Essien.
The Toffees have also often struggled to field a fit striker of any sort this season, let alone one of the pedigree of Didier Drogba or 25-goal Nicolas Anelka.
Yet Everton have more than held their own against most Premier League sides, including Chelsea, when they had the better of exchanges in last month's goalless draw at Stamford Bridge. They drew 0-0 at Goodison Park in December.
"The players have been very good. They are getting ready for a big game," said coach David Moyes, whose achievements on a meagre budget earned him manager of the season award for the third time this week.
Everton's route to the final shows they are a match for anyone after overcoming Liverpool, Aston Villa, Middlesbrough and Manchester United, on penalties.
