Liverpool defeated Chelsea 1-0 in extra time to win the Carabao Cup final of the 2023-2024 season at Wembley Stadium in London, England, on Saturday (June 26).

In doing so, Liverpool became the first club to win the League Cup 10 times. It was a special achievement for the Reds because it came with Klopp, who is stepping down at the end of the season. Chelsea, on the other hand, fought back tears as they lost to Liverpool in the final for the second time since the 2021-2022 season.

Chelsea rattled the net In the 32nd minute, Jackson broke down the right flank and sent the ball the other way. It looked like Sterling would finish to give Chelsea the lead, 안전놀이터 but video assistant referee (VAR) showed Jackson was offside.

Liverpool hit the ground running with goalmouth misfortune. In the 40th minute, Robertson’s cross was headed on by Gakpo. But the ball hit the post. The first half ended goalless.

The second half was equally scoreless. In the seventh minute of the second half, Enso’s heel shot in front of goal went wide of the post, and in the 13th minute, Elliott’s volley was saved by the keeper.

In the 15th minute of the second half, Robertson’s free kick was met with a powerful header by Vandyke. However, VAR showed that Endo, who was in an offside position, was involved in the goal.

In the 13th minute of stoppage time, Liverpool finally broke through. A corner kick from Kostas Chimikas was headed in by Van Dijk, who found the back of the net. The Reds held on for the rest of the game to lift their 10th League Cup trophy.

After the game, Klopp called it “the most special trophy for 20 years” and added: “It’s great to win it again as part of Liverpool, I’m so proud. We deserved it.” The Reds are celebrating their last dance with Klopp, who is stepping down as Liverpool manager at the end of the season.

The loss also ended Chelsea’s streak of six consecutive English domestic cup “finals”.

“Chelsea lost the EFL Cup in 2019, the FA Cup in 2020, the FA Cup in 2021, the EFL Cup in 2022, the FA Cup in 2022, and the EFL Cup in 2024,” according to soccer statistics firm Optazo.

After the game, Gary Neville had some harsh words for Chelsea. Calling them “a billion-pound ($168.74 billion) blue birdboob team,” he said: “The Chelsea players will probably regret this game for a long time. I have no sympathy for them to be honest.”

“Probably most people thought Chelsea would win the game when Liverpool had injuries and youth players coming on,” Neville said, noting that “they played a bit well in the first half, 토토사이트 추천 but in the second half and into extra time, Chelsea stumbled and didn’t play as well as they should have.”

“To be honest, the performance of the Chelsea players was serious. I don’t know what Mauricio Pochettino did. We could lose the game, it could be the final. But we shouldn’t have been defensive,” he said, “especially against Liverpool, who had five youth players.”
