Carabao Cup Finalists confirmed as Liverpool see off Arsenal to reach Wembley

20 January 2022

Liverpool will take on Chelsea in next month's Carabao Cup Final at Wembley Stadium after overcoming Arsenal in Thursday evening's Semi-Final second leg.

With the aggregate scores level at 0-0 heading into the game at the Emirates Stadium, Diogo Jota's double ensured Jurgen Klopp's side will have a chance to win the competition for a record ninth time under the famous arch on 27 February.

Chelsea, of course, had already confirmed their place after beating London rivals Tottenham Hotspur over two legs in the other Semi-Final.

Speaking after Liverpool's 2-0 victory in the capital, Klopp said: "I'm really happy about it [reaching the Final] and the players are over the moon in the dressing room.

"It was a difficult game for us and what the boys did against this really good Arsenal side was exceptional. We calmed the crowd down and played really good football.

"We scored two wonderful goals and, I have to say, Diogo Jota was on fire! Absolutely outstanding."
