Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech says his wonder save kept Andy Carroll's header for Liverpool from getting over the goal line yesterday.

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech says his wonder save kept Andy Carroll's header for Liverpool from getting over the goal line yesterday.

The main talking point of the FA Cup final came late on when Carroll powered in a header from a Luis Suarez cross that the Liverpool players thought had crossed the line before Cech clawed it out.

But the goal was not given, and Cech was adamant that was the right decision.

He told ITV: "I don't think it was over the line. If the ball was behind the line I couldn't have kept it out. I'm 100 per cent sure it was not in, and I felt that from the first moment."
