Chelsea secured their third FA Cup in the space of four years with a 2-1 victory over Liverpool at Wembley in a game which we dominated for large spells, only to find themselves hanging on at the death.

Ramires gave them an early advantage when he raced on to a wonderful Juan Mata pass and drilled his shot into the bottom corner, via the aid of a deflection off Pepe Reina’s leg.

They doubled their advantage minutes into the second half when Didier Drogba took a Frank Lampard pass in his stride and drove his effort beyond Reina into the far corner, becoming the first player to score in four FA Cup Finals.

Liverpool pulled one back in the 64th minute to set up a nervous finish as the Reds pressed for an equaliser, but a stunning Petr Cech save in the 81st minute helped Chelsea to hold out to take the cup again.
