Alisson Becker and Kostas Tsimikas were the spot-kick heroes as Liverpool secured a 6-5 penalty shoot-out triumph against Chelsea to win the FA Cup and keep their quest for an unprecedent quadruple alive.

Just 76 days after the Reds edged past Thomas Tuchel’s men on penalties following a scoreless Carabao Cup final, Wembley witnessed another gripping clash between these sides that went down to the wire.

Nothing could split them after 90 minutes and extra time again, despite Luis Diaz going close on several occasions. Marcos Alonso was denied by the bar for Chelsea, while Andy Roberson missed a couple of big chances for Liverpool.

Edouard Mendy prevented Sadio Mane striking the winner after Cesar Azpilicueta had hit the post, only for Alisson to keep Mason Mount’s penalty out. That set the stage for Kostas Tsimikas, who made no mistake to send his teammates and Jurgen Klopp charging up the pitch to celebrate with him.
