Exactly like in the League Cup final in February, Liverpool won the FA Cup final on penalties against Chelsea this Saturday after a crazy match at Wembley (0-0, 6-5 tab).
During the first half hour, the Reds completely asphyxiated their opponents under the impetus of a twirling Luis Diaz but fell on an impeccable Edouard Mendy. Salah’s injury exit, however, with a thigh injury, raised concerns 15 days from the Champions League final and foreshadowed a more complicated end to the first half for Liverpool, after Pulisic had already missed a goal while fact.
The London pressure increased after the break, and Marcos Alonso found the bar! But Jürgen Klopp’s men held on and then woke up at the end by finding the post twice in the space of a few seconds by Diaz then Robertson! At the end of these 90 minutes without goal but intense, it was therefore necessary to go through extra time, then penalties
After a miss from Azpilicueta, Mendy saved the day by defeating his compatriot Mané, who had the match point at the end of his foot. But Alisson then stopped Mount’s shot and Tsimikas offered the 8and Cup in their history at the Reds, the first since 2006. The quadruple is still possible!
