Liverpool won the FA Cup final against Chelsea on penalties to win their second trophy of the season and keep their quadruple dreams alive.

The 141st FA Cup final ended goalless despite Marcos Alonso and Christian Pulisic going close for the Blues and Luis Diaz and Andy Robertson almost scoring for the Reds.

Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta and Blues academy graduate Mason Mount both missed from the spot and Kostas Tsimikas scored the decisive penalty in a 6-5 win.

Sadio Mane had the chance to clinch the trophy for Liverpool after Azpilicueta’s effort hit the post but he was denied by his Senegal teammate Edouard Mendy.

The momentum appeared to be with Chelsea at that point but Liverpool’s remaining penalty-takers kept their cool and Alisson produced a save to deny Mount.
