Chelsea won their fourth FA Cup in six seasons as they held off a Liverpool fightback and avoided another "ghost" goal to triumph again at Wembley.
Didier Drogba became the first man to score in four cup finals, John Terry became the first captain to lift the cup four times at the home of football and Ramires became the first Brazilian to net in a cup final as caretaker manager Roberto Di Matteo maintained his remarkable record in major finals to boost his own job prospects.
Andy Carroll came off the bench and made it 2-1 to set up a grandstand finish, and thought he had equalised late on but the officials appeared to correctly deem Petr Cech had kept his header out and Chelsea held on.
