Reds fans will be dreaming of Wembley again this morning, after overcoming Bournemouth, and getting a favourable draw in the Quarter Finals of the Carabao Cup.
Liverpool are the undisputed Carabao Cup (League Cup) Kings. With 9 title wins, Liverpool have move victories, and Final appearances, than any other English team. But when was the last time Liverpool lifted the trophy....?
Penalty Shoot Out Drama
Liverpool last tasted success in the competition during the 2021-22 season. As the reds chased an historic quadruple, the Carabao Cup was the first piece of silverware up for grabs.
Liverpool faced a strong Chelsea team at Wembley, with the game taking place on 27th February 2022. A crowd of 85, 512 packed into Wembley in anticipation of an exciting, high scoring game.
Sadly, as is often the case with showpiece finals between two big teams, the game was a bit of a damp squid. Both teams effectively cancelled each other out, although Chelsea had the better of the chances, and had it not been for poor finishing, might have won the game in normal time. A further 30 minutes of extra time couldn't separate the teams, and so a penalty shoot out was needed to decide the game.
And what a shoot out it turned out to be....
The drama began before the shoot out had even begun, with Chelsea opting to substitute goalkeeper Mendy - who ahd started the final, for sub goalkeeper - Kepa Arrizabalaga, who was seen as a penalty specialist. As the shootout progressed, both team kept their nerve, with all 5 regular penalty takers scoring. That meant a sudden-death situation, with the less favoured players stepping up to take a penalty.
Once again, every player scored, to leave the scores tied at 10 - 10, meaning the goalkeepers would need to step up and take a spot kick. Liverpool keeper Kelleher stepped up first, scoring his penalty like a seasoned pro. That meant Kepa had to score to keep the match alive, but the pressure was too much and he skied his kick into the crowed, to the delight of the Liverpool players and fans.
Liverpool were Carabao Cup Winners again, with Jordan Henderson lifting the trophy.
