Liverpool keep quadruple dream alive with FA Cup triumph over Chelsea

Liverpool

Liverpool have been crowned as FA Cup champions for the first time since 2006 after beating Chelsea in a penalty shoot out at Wembley Stadium.

All those watching will have been feeling a sense of deja vu, as Liverpool triumphed over Chelsea in a penalty shoot out, much like they did in the Carabao Cup final back in February.

Both sides again failed to score in 120 minutes of football, but Liverpool held their nerve from the spot, as Kostas Tsimikas scored the winning penalty to deliver a second trophy of the season for the Reds.

That win means the quadruple is still a possibility for Liverpool, as they play Real Madrid in the Champions League final at the end of the month, although they do trail Manchester City by three points with two games remaining in the Premier League.

The quadruple dream is still a possibility for the Reds.

Liverpool had the lion’s share of possession in the match, and attempted more shots, although only two of those were on target in a nervy affair in London.

The Reds’ attention will now turn to the Premier League and Champions League, as they hope to win all four major titles on offer this season, although an injury to Mohamed Salah will be a cause for concern for Liverpool supporters.

The Egyptian striker came off after 30 minutes with what looked to be a groin injury, while Virgil van Dijk was also substituted ahead of extra time for a possible injury.

Jurgen Klopp has now won all four major titles with Liverpool since joining the Merseyside club in 2015, having previously won the Premier League, Carabao Cup and Champions League in his successful stint in England.
