Liverpool completed a clean sweep of the domestic cups with another penalty shoot-out win over Chelsea at Wembley in the FA Cup final, with Kostas Tsimikas striking the decisive spot-kick after Mason Mount’s effort was saved by Alisson.

It had taken 22 penalties to separate the sides in February's Carabao Cup final and while there were only 14 taken on this occasion, it was once again Jurgen Klopp's side who clinched the silverware by the narrowest of margins, handing Chelsea a third straight FA Cup final defeat in the process.

On the final day of the Premier League season, Liverpool host Wolves and Chelsea host Watford on Sunday at 4pm.

The 141st FA Cup final, 150 years on from the first, had seemed unlikely to go all the way in the opening 15 minutes, as livewire Luis Diaz gave Trevoh Chalobah real problems during an electric start from Liverpool, but Chelsea gained a foothold and hit the bar through a Marcos Alonso free-kick during their own fast start to the second half.

Earlier in the shoot-out, Sadio Mane - who scored the winning penalty for Senegal at the Africa Cup of Nations earlier this year - had missed the opportunity to clinch it for Liverpool following Cesar Azpilicueta's strike against the post, but Tsimikas kept his cool to become the unlikely hero.

Liverpool's success was tempered by injuries to Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk, which could potentially damage their hopes of an unprecedented quadruple, with their Premier League pursuit set to continue on Tuesday at Southampton on Sky Sports and their Champions League final with Real Madrid on May 28.
