Liverpool, who beat Chelsea on penalties, play for cups

Latest NewsLiverpool, who beat Chelsea on penalties, play for cups

It’s a lie. In football, 0-0 is not always two blunders. They were not in the FA Cup final, the intrigue was right up to the penalty shootout. The matches between Liverpool and Chelsea are so tense that if on February 27 they needed 21 penalties to decide the League Cup in favor of the Reds, this time the team of Jurgen Klopp, who have already won all possible trophies, needed 14 shots. the reds will lift their eighth FA Cup. With the Champions League final approaching, this Liverpool, in which Salah was injured, claims the cups. The work of this team is great. To date, he still has options in the premier league and he has a call at Madrid 28. Almost nothing.

At the notorious Wembley with its mythical eco-wear, Liverpool and Chelsea graced the FA Cup. And not on any particular day. The most traditional competition in the world turned 150 years old (141 times). It was the third consecutive final for Thomas Tuchel’s men, who had lost the previous two. Big was the debt of Klopp’s wards, who had been absent from the final for ten years. In English football, the Cup does not stop.

No one can give up in the Cup, and even more so in the final. Without deceit. And there was no truce at Wembley. Liverpool got off to a brilliant start with Henderson acting as a crowd monger in place of the injured Fabinho. Klopp is waiting for the former Castile player in the final in Paris. Having applied, the Reds clinically fulfilled the first lesson: Chalobah, a young sentry from Sierra Leone, credited by Tuchel, was in poverty. As a striker, Luis Diaz, a Colombian winger who had a direct impact on the Anfield team. Fast, skillful and bloody, the coffee maker has plagued Chelsea from the start. With their extensive staging, Thiago and Keita almost scored. And Diaz himself stopped Mendy.

Liverpool ruled with their usual format, looking to bite the bullet on the opponent’s pitch. Chelsea, more solid in their rearguard, prefers to encapsulate and sprint. Stopping Klopp’s team’s first push, his German colleague’s team soon found their roadmap. At Liverpool, the full-back position is no small matter. It is occupied by Alexander-Arnold, who has a compass in his boots. Together with Thiago, he runs the Mercy’s main offensive observatory. It happens that Alexander-Arnold, a false winger with a midfield calling, as in the case of Barcelona’s Alves or the Portuguese Cancelo at City, lacks a canine. Magnificent in attack, in the trenches he is not a green beret. Vinicius has records of this. Like Pulisic and above all Marcos Alonso, another orthopedic striker who is a masked striker.

Alisson, the Brazilian goalkeeper of Liverpool, had a big fight with the grandson of Marquitos. But the alarms were in the middle of the field. Doctors were treating Alisson when they had a doppelgänger. Salah approached the canvas. 14 days before the final of the European Cup, the Egyptian, the top scorer and assistant to the prime minister, retired half an hour later due to muscle discomfort. Klopp’s torn face was telling. Unlike Madrid, Liverpool were in shape before applying for Orejona. After the cup final, he could still have a league dictatorship that City are about to uncork.

There could not have been a more balanced date at Wembley. Stormy meeting. Without brakes, with players squeezed like lemons. Chances were added up in two goals, almost always on the sides. Marcos Alonso, who, like Alexander-Arnold, is more than a fan, was in the majority. He threw a foul on the crossbar. Then both Diaz and Robertson would fall into Mendy’s posts.

Not an ordinary ball game. Without brackets. Liverpool and Chelsea without a pitcher, without a shirt. Especially the Beatles team, who reached extra time with more bones by taking over Ruediger’s boar ranch. The future Madrid player, who with his Herculean body is capable of winning the race against Manet, resisted with his crews on the ropes. But it wasn’t the day Luis Diaz was blinded by a goal. He, like Marcos Alonso, bit where, without Salah, Mane and Lukaku were waiting. For the third half, Klopp’s team arrived without Van Dijk, bruised or with some kind of illness.

The match was so close that the Liverpool bosses left for Chelsea at the end of the second half with a big pulse in extra time. But both teams reached the penalty shoot-out with full enthusiasm. Azpilicueta failed. Manet and Mount then stopped at Alisson, who is not Carius. The last firework was from Tsimikas in front of the smiling eyes of the iconic Rush and Dalglish.

Concerns about the medical part of the nursing network

Exactly two weeks before the Champions League final against Real Madrid, the red pilot lit up on the Liverpool bench half an hour after the start of the game. 29-year-old Mohamed Salah put his hand to his right groin, fell to the ground and, after being observed by the team’s doctors, made his way to the locker room on his own. The Egyptian was not allowed to try on for a few more minutes and see how his body would react to the discomfort. He left and was replaced by Diogo Jota.

“I want to play against Real Madrid and I hope to beat them,” the striker assured a few days ago at demonstrations that were interpreted as a desire for revenge. In the 2018 final in Kyiv, in addition to losing to the whites, Salah had to leave with a serious left shoulder injury after a hitch with Sergio Ramos, also half an hour later.

For his part, according to Jurgen Klopp’s prediction, Fabinho, who suffered a muscle injury this week, should be at the Paris event.
