Liverpool are one of the most successful teams in British football history, and the trophy cabinet at Anfield has been full over the years.
From top-flight titles to domestic cups and European titles, the Reds have plenty of experience in winning titles.
Klopp led the team to multiple titles during his time at Merseyside, and the German now has Premier League, UEFA Champions League and Carabao Cup victories on his CV.
The FA Cup was the final piece of the puzzle in Klopp’s success story, but when was the last time Liverpool lifted the trophy? GOAL takes you back to history.
When was the last time Liverpool won the FA Cup?
The last time Liverpool won the FA Cup was in 2005-06 when they beat West Ham in Cardiff.
The Reds are gearing up to take on Chelsea on May 14 in a game that will decide this year’s award for England’s oldest award.
Klopp has already reached the top of the League Cup in 2022, and it would be very good to win the double before the potential quadruple Albert.
From the north-west to north London, Liverpool’s loyal fans want to see Jordan Henderson lead the team to lift the hefty award.
In 2006, in what was dubbed the “Steven Gerrard Final”, the Reds beat West Ham on penalties through 120 minutes of play in a 3-3 draw.
Liverpool have not won the FA Cup since then.
When was the last time Liverpool won the FA Cup at Wembley?
The aforementioned title was won by captain Gerrard’s superb performance at a time when Wembley was undergoing an expensive rebuild and the FA Cup final was played at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium. It was also the last FA Cup final to be played in Wales.
Liverpool also won their first final since two of London’s famous towers were demolished, and the game was more dramatic that day. Michael Owen was the hero on the spot, as the England striker scored twice in the final seven minutes in a 2001 win over Arsenal.
These memorable games were played on Welsh soil, with Liverpool last winning the FA Cup at Wembley Stadium even further back.
In 1996, the Reds lost to Eric Cantona and the team actually hadn’t won at Wembley since 1992.
In 1992, the team beat Sunderland to claim the title, then Sunderland was a sub-division team, and the Reds passed the second half with goals from Michael Thomas and Ian Rush.
How many FA Cups have Liverpool won?
Liverpool have won a total of 7 FA Cup trophies so far, and they also have a painful lesson from 7 final defeats. Of the English teams, only Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal have reached more finals.
In 1965, Liverpool won the FA Cup for the first time in team history by winning overtime. They had reached the final twice before, losing to Burnley and Arsenal in 1914 and 1950.
Considering Liverpool’s dominance in the top flight, the Reds only won two FA Cups between 1974 and 1986, which is somewhat surprising.
In 1989, Liverpool dominated the FA Cup again, the second Merseyside derby to appear in the FA Cup in four years. The Reds beat the Toffees 3-2 after losing 1-0.
