Liverpool Defeat Chelsea To Win Carabao Cup Final

Liverpool are sending Jurgen Klopp off with a winners medal after the Reds defeated Chelsea in the Carabao Cup final at Wembley.

Before the game, news broke that the Reds would be without star players Darwin Nunez and Mohamed Salah and things got worse with Ryan Gravenberch subbed off in the first half after a poor challenge from Moises Caicedo.

Both teams had their moments and after Chelsea weathered an early storm Raheem Sterling found the back of the net first only to see his strike ruled out for offside.
