The 2010 FA Cup Final took place on 15th May 2010, contested between Chelsea and Portsmouth. With Chelsea having been winners in 2007 and 2009, either side of a Portsmouth victory in 2008, this would be the fourth year in a row that one of the finalists had won the competition.

It was Chelsea's tenth appearance in the competition's finale, and resulted in their sixth win. It was the Blues' third FA Cup title in four years, their fifth victory in 13 years, and they became only the sixth side to retain the FA Cup. Chelsea went into the match as newly crowned English Champions, and the win completed the club's first League and FA Cup double. The result also meant that Ashley Cole became the first player to win six FA Cup winners medals, three of which were with Chelsea.


Match review

Chelsea had the best of the game, with Frank Lampard, Didier Drogba, John Terry and Salomon Kalou all hitting the woodwork, but the teams remained level at the interval. Portsmouth were awarded a second half penalty for a Juliano Belletti foul on Kevin-Prince Boateng, but Petr Čech saved Boateng's weak shot, becoming the third goalkeeper to save an FA Cup final penalty. Just minutes later Drogba slotted in a free kick (his seventh cup final goal for the club) to secure the win and with it Chelsea's first double. The match also marked the final competitive appearances of Belletti, Michael Ballack and Joe Cole.
