5 things you might have missed from the FA Cup final as Liverpool beat Chelsea on penalties

Did you miss what Kepa did ahead of the penalty shootout?

ChelseaandLiverpoollocked horns at Wembley in the FA Cup final but could not be separated after 120 minutes of football. It was an open affair with chances falling to both sides and they went begging in similar fashion. The first half was dominated by the Reds, who found a lot of joy on the left-flank as Luis Diaz continued his impressive performances.

Jurgen Kloppwas met with an early setback asMohamed Salahhad to be substituted in the 33rd minute due to an injury. Liverpool created many chances but were unable to break the deadlock. Meanwhile, between the Reds continued spells of possession, Chelsea found ways to counter with Christian Pulisic and Marcos Alonso playing important roles.

The second half sawThomas Tuchels men come out all guns blazing, however they could not trouble the scorekeepers. Alonso hit the crossbar with a well-taken free-kick that went sailing over Alisson. But Liverpool replied by hitting the post themselves twice in the span of one minute, with Luis Diaz andAndy RobertsonstrikingEdouard Mendys goal.

Eventually, even extra time couldnt separate the two sides as both the keepers were called into action. Mendy managed to save his Senegalese compatriot Sadio Manes penalty following Cesar Azpilicuetas early miss to send the competition to sudden death.

Alisson then saved Mason Mounts spot-kick to give Liverpool the advantage, and Kostas Tsimikas converted superbly to crown Jurgen Klopps men as FA Cup winners. On that note, here are some of the things you might have missed out on during the game:

In keeping with tradition, the English national anthem was played at Wembley before kick-off in the final. The Reds faithful meanwhile went ahead with their own tradition and booed God Save the Queen alongside Abide with Me, something they have been practicing for years now.

Liverpool fans did the same in February this year against the same opponents in the EFL Cup final. The roots of this scornful gesture can be traced back to 1980s when there was major opposition towards the Conservative Government. The divide between Merseyside and the rest of the country became more severe after the Hillsborough Disaster, which Liverpool fans feel was managed poorly.

Chelseas opponents on the day have frequently expressed their disdain towards English patriotism by waving a flag that says Scouse not English at Anfield. The Reds faithful remain unsatisfied with the current regime and even jeered the introduction of Prince WIlliam at Wembley on Saturday.

Although it was Jurgen Klopps men who started brightly on the field, the Blues supporters at Wembley were not dithered seeing their team second best. Instead, they rolled back the clock to remind Liverpool fans of a moment of embarrassment concerning their legend Steven Gerrard.

The colossal midfielder has always been harshly judged for being unable to win the Premier League in his illustrious career. Eight years ago, when the Aston VIlla manager was playing for the Reds, he had a great chance to add Premier League silverware to his trophy cabinet.
