While Liverpool are also competing for the Premier League and Champions League, the game at Wembley Stadium will realistically define whether Chelsea can claim to have enjoyed a successful campaign.
However, regardless of the final result in North London, Tuchel will be equalling a record set by the club's most successful manager when he lines up in the dugout.
On Saturday, Tuchel will have been in charge of Chelsea for just one year and 108 days, and the game will represent his fourth domestic or European final while with the club.
Only Jose Mourinho has taken charge of the same amount of finals as Chelsea manager, the Portuguese featuring in one FA Cup and three League Cup finals.
Although Tuchel is only one from three when it comes to winning games in this category, Mourinho collected three trophies between 2005 and 2007, the other coming in 2015. body check tags ::
