Liverpool beat Chelsea 1-0 after extra time in the League Cup final, or Carabao Cup, played at Wembley.

The Reds had not won a trophy since 2022 and took to the field with a lineup full of very young players due to the many absences, achieving success thanks to their experienced captain, Virgil van Dijk, who 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, who announced he would step down and take a sabbatical.

PREMIER LEAGUE


The Premier League title is more in the balance because, behind the Reds, Manchester City and Arsenal are hot on their heels.

The Citizens slowed down against Chelsea, then won with difficulty thanks to Haaland against Brentford.

The absence of De Bruyne was felt, who Guardiola is gradually reinstating after his long injury.

Man City are away at Bournemouth (against whom they have scored 14 goals in the last three matches), who have a good ranking but who have not won for two months.

The commitment of Arteta's Arsenal is more serious as they face Newcastle who have recently lost only to City and Liverpool and must get over the disappointment of the recovery defeat against Porto.

Zaniolo's Aston Villa hopes to strengthen their fourth place by facing Nottingham.

Man United and Brighton are also trying to gain points for places in Europe, favorites against Fulham and Everton
