Liverpool beats Chelsea in FA Cup final

Liverpool claimed their second cup title of the season beating Chelsea on penalites.

It was Chelsea’s third consecutive FA Cup final loss.

Konstantinos Tsimikas converted the deciding penalty to win it 6-5 for Liverpool to keep their quadruple hopes alive.

The loss now means that while it was their second cup final loss of the season to the same Liverpool, they have now lost the last three FA Cup finals they have played in.

Chelsea lost in 2020 to Arsenal; in 2021 to Leicester and now in 2022 to Liverpool – a record no other club has managed to set in the competition.

Despite dominating play in the extra time, and coming back level during the spot kicks after Mendy saved from Mane, Mason Mount missed in the sudden death and gave Tsimikas the opportunity to win it for the Reds.
