Chelsea and Liverpool walk out onto the Wembley pitch on Saturday for the FA Cup final, the players will think nothing of the pristine surface they will play on as long as it looks like a carpet.But considering that only 17 days ago, on April 23, Tyson Fury beat Dillian Whyte in a boxing match watched by over 100,000 people, it is nothing short of astonishing that the pitch is in fine condition.

Fury won by TKO in Round 6 to defend his WBC and The Ring heavyweight titles in front of the largest post-war boxing crowd the UK has ever seen — and two more heavyweights are set to battle it out as Chelsea and Liverpool tussle at Wembley for the second time this season.Yet that hasn’t stopped Wembley’s busy ground staff from pulling off a miracle in time for the clash.

Images uploaded to Twitter on Saturday evening by Karl Standley, the FA’s head groundsman, appeared to show the extent of the damage done with a ‘before and after’ comparison of the pitches.

Chelsea and Liverpool may have been horrified to see the state of the greenery after the seating and boxing ring were carried off.But contrast that to the incredible surface that now exists just two-and-a-half weeks later, there can surely be no complaints from either Jurgen Klopp or Thomas Tuchel given the turnaround in such a short space of time.
