In the FA Cup final Red and Blues offered a certified copy of the last act of the League Cup. Except for the name of the winner Liverpool after a fierce penalty shootout for César Azpilicueta, Mason Mount and Chelsea (0: 0, 5 TAB 6). black dot, Scousers he may have lost Muhammad Salah in the Champions League final.

Missed shots on goal: Azpilicueta and Mount for the Blues // Mané for the Reds
Undoubtedly, Chelsea, eager to avert her fate after losing the League Cup final to Liverpool at the end of February, appeared in Canary Yellow at Wembley. 141and The FA Cup final did not smile at her, but she was temperamental, indecisive and deserved a complete scoreboard with views of the boxing match. Warning on the banks of the Mersey: Muhammad Salah’s injury half an hour after the game, which somewhat destabilized the attack Redand which causes a chill in the back before the C1 final against Real Madrid on May 28.
Box to box like in England
To you, to me. The Reds and Blues — finally the Yellows — alternated domination sequences, lightning phases, and agony periods, for a complete fresco. Luis Díaz is the first to excel after a clear pass from Trent Alexander-Arnold, but Édouard Mendy wins his fight before Naby Keïta misses the goal (9and). A quarter of an hour under Liverpool’s control, with its 70% possession and breathless pushing against static Chelsea. But if Diaz is an ubiquitous time (4and and 13and), Chelsea fought after her duo Mason Mount-Christian Pulišić.
The first finds the second, whose recovery borders on Alisson ‘s right column (24and). Then the American international of Croatian origin moves Marcos Alonso, only ashamed of the jump of the Liverpool goalkeeper (28.and). The pace slows somewhat depending on the outages, and Mohamed Salah returns to the locker room prematurely after his injury (33and). His deputy, Diogo Jota, missed the cross from Andy Robertson, but used force rather than deflection (45and).
Number Diaz and Mounty Python
The only downtime, the advertising page, before the second act starts up again in a stormy tone. From the beginning, Marcos Alonso Alisson sweated (47and) before breaking his crossbar with a free kick off center (48and). The Brazilian at the parade in front of Pulišić doesn’t know where to turn a minute earlier, and we think Liverpool will regret their situation. Robertson confirms his doubts by failing to respond adequately to the recovery of his lower abdomen (51and). Diaz, Jota and Keïta also draw tightly in the last gesture. Pulišić sends frost after the red half of Wembley (68and), but the end of the regulation period is 100% Scouser.
Luis Díaz hit off the post after a live sequence (83rd)and), Robertson that mimics the second upright as the angle was open (84and). The last Colombian ammunition in the area lacks effect (90and). No overtime events where fatigue and waiting attitude have a say. Kepa will not replace Mendy this time, but the result is identical: after the failures of César Azpilicueta (post) and Mount (Alisson’s firm hand), Chelsea penalizes. Édouard Mendy, who closed the door to compatriot Sadie Mané, may be in a bad position, and Thomas Tuchel’s band ends the season empty-handed.
