FA CUP : Chelsea beat Liverpool 2-1 to win FA Cup

Chelsea won the FA Cup for the seventh time after goals by Ramires and Didier Drogba sink Liverpool at Wembley.

Ramires fired Chelsea into an 11th minute lead and Didier Drogba doubled their advantage just 7 minutes into the second-half, in so doing became the first player ever to score in four different finals.

The game then changed on the hour when Andy Carroll came on and he scored soon after to cut the arrears in half.

With minutes left Carroll thought he had headed an equaliser but Petr Cech clawed the ball off the line to rescue Chelsea, who managed to hang on and claim their third FA Cup in four years.

FULL-TIME : Chelsea 2 (Ramires 11, Drogba 52) beat Liverpool 1 (Carroll 64)
