Chelsea already have a lead in the FA Cup final after just 11 minutes of play.

Liverpool's defense got absolutely torched, with left back Jose Enrique the biggest victim of Ramires' fantastic run.
Juan Mata provided a fantastic assist on the goal, dropping deep into his own area and playing a fantastic through ball into space. Ramires easily went by Enrique to get on the end of it and carried it into the box before putting a near-post shot on target. Pepe Reina probably should have kept it out, but it's hard to blame him for the goal when his left back was beaten so badly for pace.
