Liverpool beat Chelsea to win FA Cup, keep quadruple hope alive

LONDON — Liverpool beat Chelsea in the first-ever FA Cup final penalty shoot-out at Wembley to stay in contention for the potentially so unlikely quadruple of the trophies on Saturday.

Just like in the League Cup final in February, the showpiece ended 0-0 after regulation and extra time before Liverpool prevailed again. This time the Reds were helped by Chelsea midfielder Mason Mason’s penalty before Konstantinos Tsimikas secured a 6-5 shootout win with his first-ever goal for the club.

It was Liverpool’s first FA Cup final triumph since 2006 – one of two previous shootouts that settled the cup final held in Cardiff during the rebuilding of Wembley.
