The 2022 FA Cup Final was an association football match played at Wembley Stadium in London, England, on 14 May 2022. Chelsea and Liverpool were the finalists, the same as in the 2022 EFL Cup Final earlier in the season. This was the first time that the same pair of teams met in both the EFL Cup Final and the FA Cup Final of the same season since Arsenal and Sheffield Wednesday in 1993. Organised by the Football Association (FA), it was the 141st final of the Football Association Challenge Cup (FA Cup) and the showpiece match of English football’s primary cup competition. The match also marked 150 years since the first FA Cup Final was played in 1872.
Liverpool won the trophy following a drought since 2006, with Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp becoming the first German-born manager to win the FA Cup. Chelsea set a record by losing a third consecutive final, after defeats to Arsenal and Leicester City in the 2020 and 2021 finals, respectively.
In the 8th minute of the match Trent Alexander-Arnold passed into the path of Luis Díaz who ran in on goal and shot low from the left which was saved by Édouard Mendy and eventually cleared. In the 23rd minute, Christian Pulisic shot past the left post for Chelsea after a low cross from the right. Chelsea had another chance in the 27th minute with Alisson getting down to block a shot from the left by Marcos Alonso. In the 47th minute, Alisson again got down to his right to save a shot from Pulisic. A minute later Marcos Alonso hit a free-kick from the right against the back left post. In the 83rd minute Luis Díaz shot from the right of the penalty area which went wide off the outside of the right past. A minute later Andrew Robertson hit a shot against the left post from close range after a cross from the right by James Milner. Luis Díaz curled another shot just past the right post in the 90th minute.
After no goals in extra-time the match went to a penalty shoot-out. César Azpilicueta missed with Chelsea’s second penalty with his shot hitting the post. After four successful penalties scored by Liverpool, Sadio Mané had the chance to win the game but his penalty was saved by Mendy down low to his left. Alisson then saved down to his left from Mason Mount which allowed Kostas Tsimikas to win the game for Liverpool when he scored his penalty, hitting it low into the left corner, sending Mendy the wrong way.
