Liverpool claimed the second leg of a potential historic Quadruple by beating Chelsea in the FA Cup Final – but only after they nearly blew the penalty shoot-out with some dodgy advice from manager Jurgen Klopp.

Both Mo Salah and Virgil van Dijk went off injured during the goalless 120 minutes before Kostas Tsimikas struck the winning penalty though Liverpool are confident both will be fit to face Real Madrid in the Champions League final at the end of the month.

Klopp, who has become the first manager in Liverpool’s history to win the European Cup, League Championship, FA Cup and League Cup, admitted his blunder had almost cost his team.

When Sadio Mane stepped up with Liverpool’s first chance to win the shoot-out, Klopp urged him to change his usual finish against Senegal international team-mate Edouard Mendy – and Mane’s effort was saved.

‘Sadio’s penalty is 50 per cent my responsibility. I told him the goalie knows exactly what you normally do so do it the other way round. How often in my life is it better to shut up!

‘But we still made it after an incredible game. We work with a neuroscience company (neruo11) who said they could really train penalty shooting. This trophy is for them as well.’

Apart from Mane, all Liverpool’s takers were successful in a 6-5 shoot-out win that left Chelsea the first team to lose three consecutive FA Cup finals.

All attention will now be on Liverpool’s bid to make history by sweeping up the Premier League and Champions
