It means the two clubs will face off in a domestic final for the third time in three seasons, but the pre-arranged kick-off time could be moved if police get their way.
The match was set to take place at 4.30pm (GMT) on Sunday February 24, but the Daily Mail have reported that the Metropolitan Police want it to happen no later than 3pm.
It is suggested that the authorities are concerned about potential clashes between both sets of supporters, following incidents that took place before the home meeting last January.
Despite neither of the 2022 finals eliciting significant crowd trouble, the Met are keen to reduce any potential threat and are wary of any repeats from 12 months ago.
The potential change wouldn’t have particularly significant implications for travelling Chelsea supporters given their relatively small commute.
It would, however, mean an earlier start for Liverpool fans making their way to Wembley from Merseyside.
Unfortunately, it appears football supporters are still being treated like criminals with little consideration for the other consequences.
Those efforts were in vain, with the game going ahead in London but ticket credits not being taken into account for Reds fans as a result.
Whether the police are successful in their attempts to get the game moved remains to be seen, but a decision is likely to be made sooner rather than later given that the final is less than a month away.
