Liverpool completed a clean sweep of the domestic cups with another penalty shoot-out win over Chelsea at Wembley in the FA Cup final, as Kostas Tsimikas struck the decisive spot-kick after Mason Mount’s effort was saved by Alisson.

It had taken 22 penalties to separate the sides in February's Carabao Cup final and while there were only 14 taken after another goalless 120 minutes on this occasion, it was once again Jurgen Klopp's side who clinched the silverware by the narrowest of margins, handing Chelsea a third straight FA Cup final defeat in the process.

Mount dropped to his haunches as Liverpool's players and staff ran off to celebrate with their fans amid a fog of red flares - he has now lost six major finals at Wembley.

I Call True: Mount seems to be taking the brunt of the blame BUT he wasn't the only Chelsea player to miss a penalty and neither team could beat the other in normal or extra time but i'd say on balance Liverpool deserved the win.
Shame the game was marred a bit by the booing of Prince William though (link in comments)

A great end to end game but you've gotta feel sorry for Mount - missing the crucial one is always heartbreaking for a player.

Never good when it has to go down to penalties but a good game for a neutral to have watched.

Liverpool looked in control early doors but Chelsea made some impressive counters. Shame it had to go to penalties but I think the right team won.
