Liverpool crowned the English League Cup after they managed to achieve a difficult victory at the expense of Chelsea, by penalty kicks, 11-10, in the match that was held on Sunday evening at Wembley Stadium in the English capital, London, for the current season 2021-2022.
The players received the League Cup amid great joy, in which the Egyptian international Mohamed Salah participated, who managed to score the penalty kick that was available to him at the end of the match.
Liverpool became the largest club in winning the Carabao Cup with 9 titles, after disengaging with second-placed Manchester City, who had previously managed to win eight titles in its history.
The two teams exchanged attacks in the ninety minutes of the match, but they failed to find the net, so the match went to the extra time, which was dominated by a negative tie as well, to resort to penalty kicks, which witnessed a marathon that ended with the replacement goalkeeper Kepa wasting the last kick.
Joel Matip scored a goal for Liverpool, but the referee canceled it after referring to the video technology, in the 67th minute of the match for offside and a foul on Virgil van Dijk.
Romelu Lukaku also scored a goal for the Blues in the 98th minute of the match, but it was also canceled due to offside, the same with Haveritz’s goal in the 110th minute of the match.
Senegalese Sadio Mane missed a sure chance to score in the 30th minute of the match, which was saved by his compatriot Mendy with great skill.
Mason Mount missed a goal for Chelsea after hitting the ball into the Liverpool post in the 49th minute of the match.
