Liverpool won the FA Cup by beating Chelsea in the final but it wasn’t just one game that meant we won the competition.

Jurgen Klopp used 31 different players throughout the tournament and one of those was boyhood Red Elijah Dixon-Bonner, who featured against Shrewsbury Town.

Following our victory in the final, the 21-year-old took to his Twitter account to write: ‘We’ve done it!!!! FA CUP CHAMPIONS! I still can’t believe I’m part of this squad. I grew up watching this on TV and now I’m a winner. Life is crazy. I love you all REDS!🤩❤️❤️ #YNWA #LFC’.

It’s amazing to read his pride in being part of this amazing team that we have assembled and the midfielder deserves to feel part of our eighth FA Cup victory.

Whatever the future holds with or away from this great club, no one can ever take away the fact that the Harlow-born youngster was part of this piece of silverware.

Well done to him and all the young lads for helping us achieve this feat.
