Chelsea have lost three FA Cup finals in a row, and for Thomas Tuchel, it’s back to back Cup final defeats.

It was a tough battle in the FA Cup final, but like we saw in the League Cup final, Chelsea went on to lose the tie on penalties after 120 minutes of action.

Speaking after the game, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel told his players that he was proud of their performance despite the loss.

“Like in the last final in the Carabao Cup, again we have no regrets,” Tuchel said after the loss to Liverpool.

“I told the team that I’m proud. I was happy to arrive with this group and we were sure we would be competitive and make life very difficult for Liverpool.

“We struggled in the first 15 minutes and then we were excellent through the whole match, 240 minutes of final time and played 0-0 against maybe the most dangerous attacking team in the world.

“We created a lot of chance and we deserved it, as they deserved it as well, and again we lost on penalties so we’re disappointed and sad of course but at the same time proud because we left everything that you need.”
