Liverpool beat Chelsea 1-0 after extra time in the League Cup final, or Carabao Cup, played at Wembley. Virgil van Dijk headed the goal in the 13th minute of the second extra time decisive.

Liverpool are top of the Premier League and are still in contention in both the FA Cup and the Europa League last season under Juergen Klopp. The Premier League title is more in the balance because, behind the Reds, Manchester City and Arsenal are hot on their heels.
