The first piece of silverware in England will be awarded at the end of February, as Liverpool and Chelsea collide in the EFL Cup final at Wembley Stadium. This will be a repeat of the 2022 final, which was won by the Reds on penalties.
Before Betting On Liverpool vs Chelsea
Chelsea and Liverpool will collide in the EFL Cup final this season, with both sides chasing a memorable piece of silverware. It will be a second final between these sides since 2022, with the Reds landing a penalty shootout victory in the last final match between the two teams. The Reds will once again be favorites to repeat that success, as Jurgen Klopp’s side remains in the hunt for four major trophies this term.
Liverpool have won the EFL Cup on a record nine occasions, with two wins coming since the start of 2010. The Reds have been faultless throughout the competition this term, having eliminated Premier League opposition in each of the previous three rounds after overcoming Leicester City in the third round. However, they needed some luck in the semi-final stage, narrowly avoiding a shock period of extra time when claiming a 3-2 aggregate success against Fulham.
Chelsea have also experienced huge success in the EFL Cup throughout recent history, but they have lost in each of their two previous appearances in the final. Both of those losses were suffered from the penalty spot following 0-0 draws. Their most recent EFL Cup success was achieved in 2015 following a 2-0 win against Tottenham at Wembley Stadium.
Mauricio Pochettino will see a major trophy as a significant sign of progression this term, and they could yet end the season with victories in both domestic cup competitions. Chelsea needed a penalty shootout to edge past Newcastle in the quarterfinal before they came back from a goal down in the first leg to secure a second-leg 6-0 win against Middlesbrough in the semi-final stage.
Liverpool vs Chelsea Offshore Odds & Pick
Chelsea were well beaten in their previous match against Liverpool, and that makes it very challenging to side with the Blues at Wembley. Therefore, the safest play appears to be for the Reds to claim victory in the EFL Cup final this season.
