Chelsea press conference recap: Thomas Tuchel on Liverpool, FA Cup, Mendy, Mount, Havertz


Good evening and welcome to live coverage of Thomas Tuchel’s post-match press conference after Chelsea’s FA Cup final defeat Liverpool at Wembley.

In a repeat of the Carabao Cup final back in February, the teams couldn’t be separated across 120 minutes of football and a penalty shootout was required. Cesar Azpilicueta missed from 12 yards and that enabled Liverpool to be one kick away from glory when Sadio Mane stepped up, but Edouard Mendy produced a fine stop.

So the shootout went into sudden death and after Mason Mount had a spot-kick denied by Alisson in the Liverpool goal, Kostas Tsimikas stepped up, beat Mendy, and condemned the Blues to a third successive FA Cup final defeat. It was a painful one for Tuchel and his players to take.
