Liverpool stun Chelsea to win 10th Carabao Cup

Jurgen Klopp and Virgil Van Dijk lead Liverpool to Carabao Cup Glory, as the first leg of the quadruple is secured! 

  • Liverpool named a weakened team with 11 players out through injury
  • The Reds bench included five players under 20 years of age
  • Kelleher makes an incredible save from Palmer on 20 minutes
  • Ryan Gravenberch injured by a late Caicedo challenge, leaves the field on a stretcher
  • Chelsea has a goal ruled out for offside on 30 minutes
  • Gakpo hits the post with a header on 40 minutes
  • Virgil Van Dijk header ruled out for 'technical' offside
  • Game finishes 0 - 0 after 90 minutes
  • Liverpool bring on 4 youngsters for extra-time
  • Van Dijk scores the winning goal in the 28th minute of extra time
  • Liverpool win the League Cup for a record 10th time

Liverpool produced one of the best Cup Final performances in living memory, beating a Chelsea team that cost over £1billion to put together, despite missing 11 first-team players and finishing the match with five players aged 20 or under.

Virgil Van Dijk was the Liverpool hero (although in truth every single player in red was a hero), as he led from the front - a true Captain Fantastic - scoring the winning goal and refusing to let Liverpool lose.

We will have more detailed analysis later this evening and tomorrow, so add us to your favourites and check back with us later.

Lifelong fan with a passion for all things Liverpool. First memory of football is watching John Barnes score a dramatic last minute equaliser in the FA Cup when he was 4. Feels lucky to be a part of the 'Klopp' era.
