English League Cup Final, Chelsea vs Liverpool, Jurgen Klopp’s 7 Years of Waiting Pays

Sports

Chelsea and Liverpool will fight for the throne in the English League Cup on Sunday (27/2/2022).

Like the top matches in the Queen Elizabeth State competition, this time the English League Cup final will also be held at Wembley Stadium.

The plan, the Chelsea vs Liverpool duel will take place at 23.30

The English League Cup final which was held at Wembley has its own meaning for Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp .

The reason is, he has been absent for seven years from competing in the pride of this British citizen.

The last time Jurgen Klopp led the Reds to appear at Wembley was in 2015.

At that time, Liverpool met Aston Villa in the semi-finals of the FA Cup.

Unfortunately, the Reds’ move at that time had to stop after losing 1-2 to their opponent.

After that defeat, Klopp seemed to be shrouded in the Wembley curse.

It was only after seven years that he was able to release the curse and return to appear at Wembley.

The opportunity to appear at Wembley is also a stage for Klopp to break the slanted notion.

Quoted from the Mirror , after losing in the semifinals, Klopp is considered to be looking at the cup -level competition in England with one eye.

He often fielded players when appearing in the English League Cup or FA Cup.

Indeed, Klopp has emphatically denied this assumption.

He insisted on fielding the best team in every competition he participated in.

“And this ( League Cup ) is the trophy we want.”

“If everyone thinks we’re not serious about this, then I can’t do anything about it.”

“We really tried it, to be honest. The whole time, we tried to do our best.”

Klopp’s task with Liverpool to become champions in the event which is also known as the Carabao Cup is quite difficult.

The reason, they have to face Chelsea in the final.

Chelsea itself is able to display a consistent game since being handled by coach Thomas Tuchel .

For that, can Klopp overthrow Tuchel and win the English League Cup ?
