Elusive Luis Diaz
The Colombian international has been decidedly untenable since his arrival on the banks of the Mersey.
He did a lot of damage to the defense of the Blues thanks to his qualities of speed and percussion.
Often found behind defenders, he failed against Mendy in the 8th minute.
“El Fideo” just lacked success in this final with several attempts which each time came very close to Mendy's goal (52nd, 68th, 90th).
Luis Diaz once again spent a lot on the attacking front and found the post in the 82nd minute.
He was replaced in extra time.
Chelsea's left lane in evidence
Alonzo and Pulisic have been ubiquitous for Chelsea.
The left lane of the Blues after a complicated start to the match in the image of the team, surfaced and posed many problems for the Reds.
Pulisic woke up Chelsea in the first half by being the most dangerous on counterattacks, especially in the 22nd minute, but he crossed his shot too much.
Marcos Alonso went on the attack and had several opportunities to open the scoring (27th, 45th).
He found Alisson's bar from a free kick in the 47th minute.
Lukaku tight and helpless
The Belgian striker had the opportunity to stand out in this FA Cup final by being aligned at the start of the Chelsea attack.
Unfortunately for the Blues, the former Inter player was very well muzzled by Konaté and Van Dijk.
His partners failed to find him on good terms and he failed to show off.
The Belgian international was replaced in the 85th minute by Hakim Ziyech.
Difficult to get out of the players so the final was beautiful and intense.
This FA Cup was decided on penalties and unfortunately for the Blues, captain Azpilicueta, who entered the second half of extra time, missed his shot on goal against Alisson.
Even if Mount also missed his attempt, the symbol is strong when it comes to the captain who just entered the game.
