Liverpool wins the Carabao Cup

Liverpool won this season’s English Carabao Cup (League Cup), defeating Chelsea after a fierce overtime struggle thanks to a dramatic headed goal by world-class defender Virgil van Dijk.

Liverpool stood at the top by beating Chelsea 1-0 in the 2023-2024 Carabao Cup final held at Wembley Stadium in London, England on the 25th (local time), led by Van Dijk’s winning goal in the second half of extra time.

With this, Liverpool lifted the League Cup trophy for the 10th time in total.

It is an even more meaningful win for Liverpool as they are ending their partnership with manager Jurgen Klopp, who has led the team’s renaissance since taking the helm in 2015, at the end of this season.

This Carabao Cup victory is the 8th official competition that Manager Klopp has achieved at Liverpool.

Liverpool also defeated Chelsea in the final of the 2021-2022 Carabao Cup after a fierce battle that went all the way to a penalty shootout.

In the English Professional Football Premier League (EPL), Liverpool, which leads the league with 60 points with 18 wins, 6 draws and 2 losses, will win at least two crowns in the 2023-2024 season if it overtakes Manchester City (59 points) and Arsenal (58 points).

On the other hand, Chelsea became the first team in English soccer history to bow out in six consecutive cup finals.

Chelsea has recently come from the brink of winning the Carabao Cup (2019, 2022, 2024) and the Football Association (FA) Cup (2020, 2021, 2022).

All six games were held at Wembley Stadium, considered the mecca of British soccer.

Chelsea, who fell to 11th place (35 points) in the league with 10 wins, 5 draws, and 10 losses, is far from winning the championship, so they must place their hopes on the FA Cup, where they are currently in the round of 16.

The player who put an end to the fierce battle that went into overtime on this day was Liverpool captain Pandayk.

In the 13th minute of the second half of extra time, Van Dijk headed a corner kick from the right side, hitting Chelsea’s net.

Liverpool’s goalkeeper Quivin Kelleher also gave a perfect performance.Chelsea recorded 19 shots (9 effective shots), but was unable to open the goal for Liverpool, which Kelleher held on to.

Coach Klopp, who is close to saying goodbye to his beloved Liverpool, told reporters including the Associated Press after the game, “It is the most special trophy I have received in 20 years. It was really good. What I saw today may never happen again.” .

He was even happier because it was a result achieved in a situation where many key players, including Muhammad Salah and Trent Alexander-Arnold, as well as Darwin Núñez and Diogo Jota, who led Liverpool’s heyday together with him, left due to injury.

On the other hand, Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino could not hide his disappointment.Coach Pochettino said, “Both the players and I are feeling the same right now. It’s disappointing and painful. In soccer, it’s important to seize the opportunity when it comes.” 일본야동
