Watch Chelsea vs Liverpool Live

This weekend marks the highly anticipated Carabao Cup final showdown between two of English football’s powerhouses, Chelsea and Liverpool.

While it hasn’t been the season many had envisioned at Stamford Bridge, securing a piece of silverware would hold immense value for Mauricio Pochettino as Chelsea strives to reclaim its former glory. The Blues last clinched the Carabao Cup in 2015, and despite reaching two finals since then, they fell short in penalty shootouts against Manchester City and Liverpool.

Liverpool, boasting an illustrious history in this competition, seeks to secure their record-breaking tenth Carabao Cup triumph on Sunday. Jurgen Klopp, eyeing a remarkable farewell from Anfield, aims to add to his legacy with a significant trophy haul, potentially including the Premier League title, FA Cup, or Europa League. Victory at Wembley would undoubtedly strengthen their bid for a memorable farewell under Klopp’s stewardship.

The match between Chelsea and Liverpool is set for Sunday, February 25, 2024, with a 3pm GMT kick-off time, as requested by the Metropolitan Police. Originally scheduled for a 4:30pm start, Wembley Stadium in London will serve as the venue for this highly anticipated encounter.

When they met in the League Cup final in 2022, Liverpool and Chelsea had never played one another before.

After no team was able to score in regular or extra time, the game entered penalties. With all 22 players from Liverpool and Chelsea attempting a spot kick, the shootout was, to put it mildly, epic.

Chelsea and Liverpool have drawn seven of their past eight games (two of which were decided by a penalty shootout). The Reds’ 4-1 victory over the Blues at Anfield earlier this year ended the draw streak.

Only one of them failed to score a penalty, as Liverpool won the Carabao Cup thanks to a mistake made by Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

When Mohamed Salah hurt his hamstring during Egypt’s group-stage encounter against Ghana, the Africa Cup of Nations made headlines.
