Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker has congratulated Edouard Mendy on his 'amazing' saves in the FA Cup final.

After a 0-0 draw in 90+30 minute of football action, both Chelsea and Liverpool had to settle on penalty shootouts, like a repeat of the Carabao Cup in February.

Liverpool had the chance to win the shootout on their fifth penalty, but Sadio Mane saw his spot kick saved by Edouard Mendy before Alisson saved Mason Mount's kick to give Tsimikas the chance to win it.

When interviewed after the game, Alisson said: "It was amazing, we did such a good performance. We didn't score in normal time, but it was a proper fight, anything could happen. We kept a clean sheet and took it to penalties and the boys were unbelievable scoring the goals and I just needed to save the last one. I'm so happy.

"Me and Mendy did amazing saves. I couldn't do the saves without the help of the team. We worked well defensively even if they had chances. They tried to block the shots and it makes it easier for me and I'm glad for that.

"It was good. I think all of the goalkeeper coaches helped me with the decisions and then I am there. They are all fantastic players, but we deserved the win and I only did that save because we deserved it. That's part of the mentality monsters as well, going to extra time and keeping the performance level high. It gives us even more confidence for the Premier League and the Champions League final."

When asked about Liverpool's chances of more glory this season, Alisson added: "I hope so. I think it is a fantastic moment now that we need to enjoy."
