chelsea-win-fa-cup-2009 Chelsea came back from being behind to beat everton in the fa cup final today 2-1.Lampard fired home from 25 yards to give Chelsea their fifth FA Cup triumph and provide departing manager Guus Hiddink a glorious send-off.A tight encounter had been forecast after two goalless draws between the teams in the Premier League this season, but it took just 25 seconds for Saha to break the deadlock with a well-struck volley.

It beat Bob Chatt’s 1895 mark by five seconds and gave David Moyes’ underdogs the perfect start.Chelsea drew level through Didier Drogba’s header midway through the first half.

Chelsea’s superiority told in the second half and after Lampard struck, Hiddink’s men should have been awarded a third goal when Florent Malouda’s long-range effort hit the bar and went over the line.

Everton struggled to create chances, and when Saha headed over from Leighton Baines’s cross on 67 minutes, it proved their last genuine opening.But it was that man lampard yet again who had the last say in the game.

Chelsea more than deserved to win this trophy, but the loss will be heartbreaking for Everton – who have failed to win a trophy in over 14-years – but it is a perfect end to a fantastic four-months for Hiddink, who will now head back to his job as Russia’s national coach.

As the celebrations hit full swing in Wembley, Frank Lampard told the BBC:

“We went 1-0 down within a minute or so but showed a lot of character to come back.

“After getting the first we dominated the game and I’m just pleased to get the goal that wins the game. Guus has been amazing and he’s a great man, we’ve loved working with him and he deserves this victory.”

A great send off for Hiddink who has looked after chelsea well and in this game chelsea much deserved winners.
Chelsea’s outgoing boss Guus Hiddink admits defeat in Saturday’s FA Cup final would have left “unfinished business” from his tenure.

The Blues beat Everton 2-1, having missed out on both Premier League and Champions League glory this term.
Hiddink said: “I’d have loved to have played Man U. It was almost a perfect goodbye. Not (winning the FA Cup) would have left unfinished business.”
