The sides, who met in a second domestic cup final this season, played out an entertaining goalless draw in 120 minutes before being decided again on penalties.

Liverpool were in the lead early on with Luis Diaz a particular threat. A through ball from Trent Alexander-Arnold put Diaz on goal in the eighth minute but Edouard Mendy denied it before Naby Keita put the rebound wide.

Chelsea responded well to Liverpool’s pressure with Christian Pulisic closing in on 23 minutes after excellent play between Mount and Reece James on the right wing.

Shortly after, Pulisic’s pass gave Marcos Alonso sight of goal but Alisson quickly left his line to deny the Chelsea defender.

In the 33rd minute, Liverpool suffered a knock when Mohamed Salah was sent off with an injury. Diogo Jota came on for him and put in a good chance just before halftime.

Chelsea got off to the quickest start after the break with Pulisic drawing a save from Alisson and Alonso hitting the crossbar with a free kick but both sides worked hard and could only create half chances for a much of the second period.

However, Liverpool had a golden chance to win the game when substitute James Milner’s cross found Andy Robertson but he hit the post from close range.

Liverpool received another blow before extra time when Virgil van Dijk came off, apparently injured, and was replaced by Joel Matip.

Neither team managed to find a breakthrough in the extra 30 minutes, meaning penalties for the second time this season.
