There is something about this Liverpool team.

For all their qualities -- the intense pressing, the defensive solidity, the whirlwind attacks -- perhaps their finest is a sense of drama on occasions such as these.

Just as in the League Cup final earlier this year at Wembley, Jurgen Klopp's men needed penalties to see off Chelsea and lift some silverware at the same stadium.

As improbable as it is that the Reds will become the first English team to win all three domestic competitions and the European Cup, the quadruple is still possible thanks to this FA Cup win.

Two trophies in the cabinet this season, room being kept for two more. It is why Liverpool fans are still dreaming. History could still be made.

Just as in the League Cup final, a scoreless 120 minutes belied the quality of the match. Chances were created, goal posts were rattled, but perhaps it was fitting that on the 150th anniversary of football's oldest cup competition the final was decided in the most theatrical of ways as Liverpool edged Chelsea on penalties.
