Downing happy to trade points for cups
Liverpool's Stewart Downing believes victory in the FA Cup final would make up for Liverpool's disappointing Premier League campaign.
The Reds will face Chelsea at Wembley on Saturday afternoon looking to make it a double cup triumph this term following their penalty shoot-out victory over Cardiff in the final of the Carling Cup back in February. But they have struggled in the league and are currently in eighth place in the standings with just five victories at home all season. Downing admits it has not been an ideal season but still feels it can be considered a success if they manage to down the Blues this weekend. "It has been a strange season but it could end up being my most successful one if we win," he told the BBC. "We have to go there and win because that makes it even more memorable. "Some of our players have said they would take two medals over fourth place and I couldn't agree more."
