Merseyside club Liverpool FC saw off Chelsea on Sunday to win the 2022 League Cup.

The tie which finished goalless at the end of regular time was dainted by several questionable decisions by the referee; and comprised of close calls and missed chances.

The champions found the net in the second half after Mane’s header was finished off by Joel Matip—only for Virgil Van Dijk to be ruled marginally offside in the buildup.

Chelsea’s Christian Pulisic came close earlier in the game after meeting Azpilicueta’s cross. His shot was however parried by Reds shot stopper Kelleher.

English midfielder Mason Mount also came close to putting the Blues ahead on two occasions; but his shot was blocked while the other hit the upright.

The London club saw goals from Lukaku and Havertz ruled out for offside, while Edouard Mendy produced a brilliant double save to keep Mane’s attempts out in the first half.

Questionable calls on the day included Lukaku’s disallowed goal which many faithfuls have termed a wrongly disallowed goal.

Liverpool were also lucky to finish the match with 11 men after Keita’s stamp on Chalobah wasn’t reviewed by VAR.

As extra time drew to a close, Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel introduced Spanish keeper Kepa to salvage a victory in the shootout.

It was not to be on the day as the second choice stopper failed to save a single penalty before skying his own from the spot.

Liverpool emerged victorious 11-10 on penalties to secure their ninth League Cup triumph and a first for Jurgen Klopp.

They remain in contention for the English Premier League, FA Cup and UEFA Champions League titles in the 2021/2022 campaign.

Both English clubs also took out time to show their support for Ukraine before the match kicked off.

Chelsea FC captain Cesar Azpilicueta and Liverpool’s skipper Jordan Henderson carried flowers coloured yellow and blue onto the pitch. A show of solidarity with the people of Ukraine, and war-laden country.

A minute applause was also observed by Wembley faithfuls and by both teams; while the scoreboard read ‘Football Stands Together’ in a yellow and blue background.
