Van Dijk's late heroics secure Liverpool's 10th League Cup Title in dramatic win over Chelsea

Posted : 26 February 2024

In a thrilling League Cup final at Wembley Stadium, Liverpool secured a dramatic 1-0 victory over Chelsea in extra time, thanks to Virgil van Dijk's late goal in the 118th minute. The match marked a historic moment as Liverpool claimed their 10th League Cup title, with Van Dijk's earlier goal in the 60th minute disallowed after a VAR review.


Jurgen Klopp, managing his last season at Liverpool, celebrated the triumph despite facing squad challenges, including the absence of key players like Alisson, Trent Alexander-Arnold, and Mohamed Salah. Goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher's stellar performance and contributions from young talents, including 18-year-old Jaden Dance, played a crucial role in Liverpool's victory.


The intense clash saw missed opportunities on both sides, with notable chances for Liverpool's Luis Diaz, who took responsibility in the absence of key players, and Chelsea's Cole Palmer and Conor Gallagher. Kelleher made crucial saves, including a spectacular leap to deny Palmer's powerful shot, keeping Liverpool in contention.

The thrilling encounter added another chapter to the recent history between Liverpool and Chelsea, who had previously faced each other in League Cup and FA Cup finals in 2022. Liverpool emerged victorious in the League Cup final, providing Klopp with a memorable moment in his farewell season.
