Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp admits he ‘really feels’ for Chelsea after their ‘heartbreaking’ FA Cup final defeat.

The Reds’ hopes of securing a historic quadruple are very much alive after Klopp’s side beat Chelsea in another Wembley penalty shootout.

Liverpool repeated their EFL Cup final victory in February as Cesar Azpilicueta and Mason Mount missed in the penalty shootout and Kostas Tsimikas scored the decisive spot-kick.

‘It’s heartbreaking to be honest for Chelsea,’ Klopp said. ‘In a shootout there must be a loser and they are unlucky again.

‘It was an incredible, intense game against Chelsea – they would have deserved it [the win] exactly the same way, like in the Carabao Cup – that’s how small the margins are.

‘I couldn’t be more proud of my boys, the shift they put in, how hard they fought, early changes.

‘All of these things, missing good chances, overcoming good moments from Chelsea, then having really good moments ourselves.

‘Then in the penalty shootout, it was nerve-racking, my nails are gone but I really feel for Chelsea – for the second time, 120 minutes and you get nothing, that’s too hard. But for us I’m pretty happy.

‘We are mentality monsters but there were mentality monsters in blue as well – it was one penalty. Chelsea played outstanding but in the end there must be one winner and that was us today.’
