The 2009 FA Cup Final was contested between four-time FA Cup winners Chelsea, and five-time winners Everton. It was Chelsea's ninth appearance in an FA Cup Final and resulted in their fifth win.

Since both finalists' first-choice kits are predominantly blue, a coin was tossed in order to determine which team would have the first choice of kit. Everton won the toss and chose to wear their traditional blue kit, meaning that Chelsea would wear their all-yellow third-choice kit. Chelsea were nevertheless given the "home" dressing room, i.e. that used by the England national team.


Match review

Louis Saha scored just 25 seconds into the match for the Toffees, the fastest goal in FA Cup Final history. The previous fastest goal was by Bob Chatt of Aston Villa 30 seconds into the 1895 final, and the previous fastest goal in a Wembley FA Cup Final was scored by Chelsea's Roberto Di Matteo in 1997. Didier Drogba levelled the match for Chelsea in the 21st minute with a header set up by a left-wing cross from Florent Malouda.

Chelsea replaced Michael Essien with Michael Ballack in the 61st minute, before Frank Lampard scored the winning goal for Chelsea in the 72nd minute with a left foot shot. Five minutes later, a shot from Malouda appeared to crash down off the bar and over the line, but it was not given.
