THIAGO celebrated winning the FA Cup by wearing a mask of Mo Salah next to the man himself.
The Spanish international was influential in the midfield at Wembley and played the entirety of the goalless game.
But Salah only managed just over half an hour after going off injured with a suspected groin injury.
The forward nervously watched as the match went all the way to penalties, the second time this season for the two clubs.
But just like in the Carabao Cup final in February, Liverpool prevailed from 12 yards against Chelsea.
It was not quite another 11-10 classic as the spot-kicks were this time halved at 6-5.
But Thiago did his best to cheer up his injured team-mate by wearing a mask of Salah while sat next to the Egyptian.
The win keeps Liverpool’s unprecedented quadruple hopes alive as Salah fights for fitness.
Salah was later asked by reporters how he was and replied “all good”, before saying “of course” when asked if he would be fit for the Champions League final.
