It meant for the second time this season, Liverpool beat Chelsea in a final shootout.

And it seemed Tsimikas was in the mood to rile up Blues fans as he cupped his ears while celebrating in front of rival supporters.

Chelsea drew with Liverpool in the Carabao Cup final in February before dramatically losing 11-10 on penalties.

Similarly, it was another stalemate but this time Thomas Tuchel's men were beaten 6-5 from 11 yards.

It keeps Liverpool's unprecedented quadruple hopes alive.

Manager Jurgen Klopp said: "Outstanding, it was an incredible, intense game against Chelsea – they would have deserved it exactly the same way, like in the Carabao Cup – that’s how small the margins are.

"I couldn’t be more proud of my boys, the shift they put in, how hard they fought, early changes. I think Virgil is fine but his muscle was hurt.

"All of these things, missing good chances, overcoming good moments from Chelsea, then having really good moments ourselves.

"Then in the penalty shootout, it was nerve-racking, my nails are gone but I really feel for Chelsea – for the second time, 120 minutes and you get nothing, that’s too hard.

"But for us I’m pretty happy. We are mentality monsters but there were mentality monsters in blue as well – it was one penalty.

"Chelsea played outstanding but in the end there must be one winner and that was us today."

While it looked very concerning for the Reds at the time, Salah has since confirmed that it is nothing serious.

When asked if he was okay after the game, he replied: "All good" and reassured fans that he would be available for the Champions League final against Real Madrid later this month.

Virgil van Dijk was also forced off late in the game with a knee injury.

During a post-match interview with ITV Football, he said: "We're going to check it out. I felt in the first half when I sprinted, I felt a twinge behind my knee, I played on.

"In the end, I can't risk it for the team and I need to trust Joel (Matip). Hopefully it will be fine."

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp provided an update on both players in his post-match interview.

He said: "We had to change Mo early, which was not cool. It was my decision, it was pretty cautionary.

"Mo said, ‘I feel something, I can carry on.’ I said, ‘No.’ A football game is not a perfect physiotherapist, it means it rarely gets better during a game.

"Then Virg stands with me and says, ‘I feel something but it’s fine I think.’ We make a decision together, so he stays on but was clear when we didn’t make it in 90 minutes he has to go off.

"Obviously I spoke to both already after the game, both are really OK. All that we know is it’s not a big thing, we really came through."

The Reds defeated Chelsea 6-5 on penalties to keep their quadruple hopes alive.

They are still in a two-horse race with Manchester City for the Premier League title and will compete in the Champions League final on May 28.
