FA Cup fans baffled as Chelsea play in YELLOW shirts against Liverpool and not their traditional blue kit

CHELSEA confusingly wore their yellow away kit against Liverpool in the FA Cup final.

That is despite there being no kit-clash at Wembley and Thomas Tuchel's side actually being the "home" side.

But Chelsea opted against wearing their traditional blue strip and played in their second kit – leaving fans bemused.

One tweeted: "Why are Chelsea in yellow though?"

Another posted: "Why are Chelsea playing in yellow???"

One added: "Chelsea wearing yellow and for that reason alone I hope they get absolutely battered."

Chelsea have lost their last two FA Cup finals wearing blue and want to avoid a historic third.

They were also beaten by Liverpool on penalties in the dramatic Carabao Cup final in February while in blue.
