Liverpool beat Chelsea 6-5 on penalties after playing out an absorbing goalless draw and extra time at Wembley as they earned their first FA Cup triumph since 2006.

The momentum swung back in Liverpool's favour as Mason Mount missed his spot-kick, with substitute Kostas Tsimikas making no mistake to seal the victory and give the Reds their first FA Cup final win since 2006.

Liverpool were by far the more superior side but both sides missed chances in the opening 45 minutes as they went into the break on level terms following an action-packed first half that included Mohamed Salah coming off due to a muscle injury.

Neither side were able to make the breakthrough despite an array of chances in the second half as it finished 0-0 after 90 minutes, with extra time also failing to separate the two sides as the game headed to penalties.

Sadio Mane spurned the chance to clinch victory after Cesar Azpilicueta's miss from the spot, but Alisson denied Mason Mount before Kostas Tsimikas sealed the win to secure Liverpool's first FA Cup under Jurgen Klopp.

A well-worked move between Reece James and Mason Mount saw the latter break free down the Reds' left before feeding Christian Pulisic inside the box, with the Chelsea forward seeing his first-time effort go past the far post and behind to safety.

There was further concern for Liverpool as Salah fell to the floor holding his thigh without an obvious reason, with the Reds forward coming off and heading straight to the treatment room and Diogo Jota coming on in place of the Egyptian.
