Liverpool win Carabao Cup final after beating Chelsea 11-10 on penalties
LONDON, 27th February, 2022 – Liverpool won the Carabao Cup final after beating Chelsea 11-10 in an overwhelming penalty shootout at Wembley.
After a brilliant match somehow finished goalless, the first 21 penalties were all converted successfully.
Then Kepa Arrizabalaga, who was brought on at the end of extra-time, sent his penalty into thin air.
While Klopp’s decision to persist with Kelleher ahead of Alisson worked well; that of Tuchel to prefer Mendy to Arrizabalaga at the outset was a little less so.
Both teams could claim to have been deserving winners in a classic encounter full of remarkable chances, saves, four disallowed goals and mesmerizing penalty shootout with 21 successful kicks ratcheting up the tension.Share on Facebook «||» Share on Twitter «||» Share on Reddit «||» Share on LinkedIn
