FA Cup Final: Fans fault Tuchel for not replacing Mendy with Kepa as Chelsea bow to Liverpool | Goal.com

Football eEnthusiasts were left unimpressed with Thomas Tuchel’s decision not to replace Edouard Mendy for Kepa Arrizabalaga during Saturday’s FA Cup final.

With the score between Chelsea and Liverpool tied at 0-0 after 120 minutes, the Reds emerged as champions of the competition via the shootout.

During the ensuing kicks, Mendy was only able to stop Sadio Mane’s penalty but failed to deny James Milner, Thiago Alcantara, Roberto Firmino, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Diogo Jota, and Kostas Tsimikas from finding the net.

Gutted by the outcome at Wembley, Chelsea fans are unhappy with Tuchel’s choice of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations winner over the Spain international.
