Liverpool and Chelsea played out a tight FA Cup final in the blistering sun at Wembley, with it going to penalties to allow the Reds to win it 6-5.

With their supporters drowning out the opposition, the Reds began the FA Cup final on top, an error from Edouard Mendy boosting the confidence while Ibrahima Konate won out in his early tussles with Romelu Lukaku.

On to penalties it went, and in the end Alisson was the hero as he kept out Mason Mount’s spot-kick for a 6-5 victory.

Unable to capitalise, though, Liverpool began to concede opportunities at the other end, and Christian Pulisic went scarily close as he faded Mason Mount’s cutback towards goal.

Chelsea were the better side for the first 15 minutes of the additional 30, and there was one more setback after the restart, this time seeing Robertson limp off with cramp.

Chelsea came out firing after the break and the brilliant Alisson had to make a series of strong saves, while both Diaz and Andy Robertson had good opportunities at the other end.

Diaz found new life in the closing stages, and after hammering the outside of the post, the Colombian then sparked a move that saw Robertson hit the other.
