Liverpool won the FA Cup for the first time in 16 years as they beat Chelsea on penalties again, as they did in the Carabao Cup final, after a 0-0 draw after extra-time at Wembley.

However, there will be some big concerns coming out of the game for the Reds ahead of the Champions League final, with Mo Salah limping off in the first half and Virgil van Dijk failing to re-appear for the extra-time period.

It was Chelsea’s turn to start fast in the second period as Alonso volleyed an effort wide and then Pulisic forced Alisson into a fine stop.

An entertaining game failed to muster a single goal, despite numerous chances coming and going, and the showpiece clash went to penalties – where Liverpool came out on top in dramatic fashion.

Christian Pulisic also dragged an effort wide while Diogo Jota, on for an injured Salah, flicked over the bar after being teed up by Andy Robertson’s cross.

Great penalty in the shootout.

Misses from Cesar Azpilicueta and Mason Mount ultimately cost the Blues, as Kostas Tsimikas stepped up to dispatch the winning spot-kick in sudden death to hand Jurgen Klopp the only trophy he has not won as Anfield chief.
