EFL Cup Final


(M) EFL Cup Final at Wembley Stadium: Chelsea v Liverpool

⚽️ All football roads lead to the hallowed turf at Wembley Stadium this afternoon for the Carabao EFL Cup Final.  For ticket info see below.

Two powerhouses of English football are set to go head-to-head in the EFL Cup final with either Chelsea or Liverpool destined to claim the first major silverware of 2022.

Chelsea beat Tottenham Hotspur in an all-London semi-final to deny Spurs an opportunity to go one better than last year when they failed in their bid for cup glory losing 1-0 to Manchester City in the EFL final after after an 82nd minute goal from City’s Aymeric Laporte settled the match.  Thomas Tuchel’s side were easily the better of the two sides in the semi-final cruising through 3-0 on aggregate to book their place at Wembley.

In the other semi-final Arsenal – who won the second of their two EFL Cup trophies in 1993 – took on eight-time winners Liverpool and after a stalemate at Anfield it was Liverpool who seized the initiate in the second leg.  A double from Diogo Jota (who was in inspired form filling in for Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane away on Africa Cup of Nations duty) doing the damage to secure the Reds an 2-0 aggregate win in the tie.

Will it be the city of London or Liverpool who are celebrating at the final whistle of the EFL Cup final?  A fantastic atmosphere is guaranteed at Wembley Stadium with domestic honours at stake.
