LONDON: Former Premier League winners Liverpool got their hands back on the FA Cup trophy for the first time in 16 years by beating Chelsea 6-5 on penalties following a goalless draw in the 2022 final at Wembley Stadium on Saturday.

Substitute Kostas Tsimikas tucked home the winning kick after Alisson Becker had saved from Mason Mount to clinch the cup for Jorgen Klopp's men. This was the eighth time that the Reds bagged the FA Cup title.

Victory in the FA Cup final secured Liverpool's second piece of silverware this season following their Carabao Cup success - also against Chelsea - in February.

Klopp's side, also in contention for the Premier League title and have also reached the Champions League final against Real Madrid, thus kept alive their hopes of quadruple titles.

Nothing could separate the two teams after a tense and goalless 120 minutes of action in the capital. But Klopp's men emerged victorious in the shootout - as they did in the Carabao Cup final against the same opponents - to lift the trophy for the eighth time in the club's history, said a report on Liverpool's official website.

Liverpool had earlier won the FA Cup in 1965, 1974, 1986, 1989, 1992, 2001 and 2006. IANS
