Liverpool beat Chelsea on penalties to win the FA Cup

Chelsea and Liverpool had a fantastic FA Cup final, but the points in regular time were 0-0. On penalties, at Wembley, Liverpool won 6-5 and went on to become the winner. Alisson saves Mason Mount from punishment. Azpilicueta, for the Blues, and Mané, for the Reds, also remembers their shots.

Liverpool are still in contention for the Premier League and Champions League titles. Chelsea, on the other hand, are battling for a place in the next round of the Champions League, with Arsenal and Tottenham a little behind.

In the match, the Reds got anxious, as Salah left the field in the 30th minute of the first half, with a stomach ache.

Game is busy in the first half

The first 45 minutes were a good feeling in the race. Liverpool have invested in a strong arrival from the opposition, with Luis Díaz and Salah, in addition to scoring more goals. However, the team suffered two fears: first, Alisson complained of pain after a collision with Marcos Alonso and continued to the area. Shortly afterwards, Salah sat on the grass, with a stomachache, and was replaced.

On the Chelsea side, the path came to four different points, led by Pulisic, in addition to Alonso and the body moving with Lukaku. No prediction, however, would require a good rescue from athlete Alisson.

There are many ways and ‘0 to 0 fake’

The second half extends the implementation of the first. Early on, Chelsea had three options: Marcos Alonso, for the first time, on a fine defense by Alisson; Pulisic, after Lukaku’s pivot, in a new save from a Liverpool player; and, in the third, a free kick from Alonso that hit the post.

Liverpool responded with Robertson, who had taken the lead, and Luis Díaz, who shot low, crossed, but a side bar was blocked by Mendy. The mind is connected to the two sides, divided into special characters by two sides.

At 37, came two of the best in the game. Diogo Jota sends him to Mané, who treats him to Luis Díaz. The Colombian took the ball and sent his movement with his right hand. It breaks off the beam and leaves. Less than a minute later, Milner crossed to the center of the area, at Robertson, which captured his first place and sent him to the pole again.

Overtime does not have a big chance

The ropes in time always take the game to 30 minutes of extra time. With the weakness of the players and the small production on both sides, the penalty kick came.

Penalty to kill

In penalty, Marcos Alonso, Reece James, Barkley, Jorginho and Ziyech converted to Chelsea; Azpilicueta, in the second kick, wasted by sending the beam and Mason Mount received his punishment by Alisson. For Liverpool, Milner, Thiago, Roberto Firmino, Alexander-Arnold, Diogo Jota and Tsimikas conversion; Mané gets his punishment from Mendy.
