Chelsea defeats Liverpool 2-1 to win FA Cup

Chelsea won the FA Cup for the fourth time in six seasons, beating Liverpool 2-1 Saturday on a second-half goal by Didier Drogba. Drogba became the first player to score in four finals and helped the Blues survive a late onslaught by Liverpool in the 131st final.
