Liverpool beat Chelsea on penalties to win FA Cup final

Liverpool won an absorbing English FA Cup final on Saturday when they won 6-5 in a penalty shootout after the Wembley show somehow ended 0-0 after extra time.

Substitute Kostas Tsimikas set the winning penalty after Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta hit the post and Alisson saved Mason Mount’s effort.

Liverpool’s Sadio Mane also missed. It was a copy of the League Cup final in February, which Liverpool won 11-10 on penalties after that match also ended goalless.

Saturday’s win means that Liverpool are on their way to an unprecedented quadruple of trophies.

They are three points behind Manchester City in the Premier League race with two matches left and will face Real Madrid in the Champions League final on 28 May.
