Liverpool lifted the FA Cup by beating Chelsea on penalties in their second Wembley match of the season.

After normal time and overtime ended goalless from the wise goalkeeper and both hours were goalless from countless misses, a penalty shoot-out began for the two teams for the second time this season.

After Cesar Aspilicueta hit the post from a penalty, Eduard Mendy turned down a cup-winning opportunity with a fine save from Senegalese teammate Sadio Mane, but Mason Mount’s efforts were blocked by Alisson.

Here’s how SunSport’s Jack Rosser rated Chelsea:

Edouard Mendy – 6

They made a few important stops in normal time and saved a spot kick from Sadio Mane, but that wasn’t enough.

Trevo Chalova – 6

I had the shortest time all afternoon with Diaz being a full pelt.

Managed to hang on there and it took away his offline effort in the first 10 minutes.

Thiago Silva – 6

In general, it counterattacked from the initial knock with intelligent performance.

I did my best to keep Sadio Mane quiet for the most part and help Chalobah defeat Diaz.

Antonio Rudiger – 7

How Chelsea miss the Germans.

It is the most composed of the three and has kept him out of sight of Salah or Diogo Jota from his side.

Rhys James – 7

They struggled in the beginning but fell out of their deal with Diaz after starting like crazy.

They progressed well after the break and delivered a wicked cross for the teammates from center.

Ice cold for his penalty.

Jorginho – 6

Salah shot straight in the face in just 5 minutes and protected the backline well overall.

He remained sober after a bad start and gave Chelsea a bit of composure when they returned to play.

Matteo Kovacic – 7

Passed fit after getting injured in Leeds. It brought Chelsea back into the game after a poor start and impressed me before I got tired. And it was replaced right after the hour mark.

Marcos Alonso – 8

It linked wonderfully to keeping Salah quiet before the Egyptians were driven out and Christian Pulisic moving forward.

A very prudent penalty to get things going.

This Spaniard has repeatedly cut in behind Trent Alexander-Arnold and caused a lot of trouble.

Mason Mount – 7

With tired legs around him, the Cobham graduate never stopped running and working.

Christian Pulisic – 6

The Americans have been a constant danger all along, but with a lot of effort sent on a narrow scale, it turns out to be very wasteful.

Romelu Lukaku – 5

It was a disappointing afternoon with little service for the striker but he offered too little.

Under pressure from Virgil van Dijk, his first attempt at his best opportunity went far beyond the post.


N’Golo Kante (Kovačic, 66) – 7

Added plenty of energy and speed to Chelsea midfield.

He was well covered from behind and watched him constantly moving forward towards the ball from the depths.

Hakim Ziyech (Lukakuyong, 85) – 6

They scored a great penalty, but struggled to have a real impact on regular time and overtime.

Ruben Loftus Cheek (For pulley type, 106) – 6

As a center forward, his versatility was once again demonstrated. Even after only 14 minutes on the pitch, he fell in love.

Cesar Aspilicueta (for Galova, 106) – 6

They added some experience to the back line to prevent Liverpool from finding a late winner in overtime but scored a penalty in the post.

Ross Barkley (For Loftus-Cheek, 120) – 7

In his first appearance since January 8, he counterattacked and returned home, beating Alisson.
