Liverpool’s quest for a quadruple in the 2021/2022 season was kept alive as they defeated Chelsea 6-5 on penalties in Saturday’s final of the FA as the Reds produced Liverpool’s first FA Cup triumph since 2006.
Just like in the League Cup final in February, the FA Cup showpiece ended 0-0 through 120 minutes before Liverpool prevailed again.
This time, the Reds were helped by Chelsea midfielder Mason Mason’s penalty being saved before left back Konstantinos Tsimikas clinched the shootout win with his first-ever goal for the club.
In two weeks, Liverpool will be hoping to collect another trophy by beating Real Madrid in the Champions League final.
Before then, Klopp has to hope Manchester City slips up in the final two rounds of the English Premier League and Liverpool takes advantage to regain that trophy.
Liverpool are poised to face potential league champions Manchester City in the FA Community Shield on July 31 being the curtain easier of the 2022-2023 Premier League season.
