Jurgen Klopp Reacts to Liverpool Being Knocked Out of Carabao Cup

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has praised the efforts of his players in the club’s Carabao Cup elimination at the hands of Arsenal, suggesting his side were more deserving winners had they been able to find a breakthrough and score. The game finished 0-0 at Anfield, requiring a penalty shootout to separate the sides on the night, which Arsenal then edged 5-4. A largely rotated Liverpool had controlled the majority of possession during the game and created more chances without actually finding the net. Liverpool created more during normal time but lost on penalties  “I think if there was a winner in the 90 minutes, it probably should have been us. But we are in dreamland, you have to score. That’s what we didn’t

Mikel Arteta Reveals Arsenal Believe They Can Beat Liverpool Every Time

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has described knocking Premier League champions Liverpool out of the Carabao Cup as a ‘big step’ forward that puts the Gunners on the ‘right path’ with regard to eventually closing the gap between the two clubs. Arsenal finished 43 points behind Liverpool in the final Premier League table last season, yet it is the Gunners who have prevailed in three of the last four meetings between the two, including two penalty shootout victories this season alone. Arsenal also won on penalties against Liverpool in the Community Shield  Arteta’s side won 5-4 on penalties at Anfield to book a place in the quarter finals of the Carabao Cup, with goalkeeper Bernd Leno a hero for saving two Liverpool spot-kicks. It was

Liverpool 0-0 Arsenal (4-5 pens): Leno the shoot-out hero as Arteta´s side reach quarters

Bernd Leno saved two penalties as Arsenal progressed to the quarter-finals of the EFL Cup with a 5-4 shoot-out victory over Liverpool after a goalless draw at Anfield. Both sides were much changed from Arsenal’s 3-1 defeat at the same venue three days earlier and a different outcome followed in what was a far quieter contest on Thursday. Takumi Minamino wasted the best opportunity of the game in the first half and there was no change to the scoreline after the interval. Arsenal beat Liverpool on penalties in August’s Community Shield and they held their nerve once again here, with Leno saving efforts from Divock Origi and Harry Wilson after Mohamed Elneny had been denied by Adrian for the visitors. Joe Willock squeezed the

José Mourinho Digs Out Frank Lampard After Tetchy Touchline Exchange

Tottenham head coach José Mourinho has taken a less than subtle dig at Frank Lampard, hinting the Chelsea boss must control his emotions better on the touchline. The pair clashed during Spurs' Carabao Cup penalty shootout win over the Blues, exchanging words during the first half despite previously enjoying a harmonious and fruitful working relationship when Lampard played under Mourinho at Chelsea. Lampard won two Premier League titles under Mourinho  After watching his side emerge victorious after Mason Mount's missed spot kick, Mourinho couldn't resist taking a dig at Lampard's antics on the touchline, offering some pearls of wisdom to the press post-match around self control. “With Frank the most important thing is my feelings to him are more important than any words that

Tottenham Hotspur 1-1 Chelsea (5-4 pen) - Three Things We Learned

Tottenham Hotspur progressed to the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup at the expense of their London rivals Chelsea on Tuesday evening. It took a Mason Mount penalty miss in the shootout for the hosts to secure their progression to the next round after Timo Werner and Erik Lamela exchanged goals in normal time. Here are three things we learnt from the clash at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium: Werner off the mark for the Blues One of the most lethal forwards in the UEFA Champions League last season, Tottenham really should have been aware of Werner’s threat. After all, the German striker netted in North London in RB Leipzig’s victory against Spurs. Following his move to Stamford Bridge in the summer, there was somewhat an air

Frank Lampard Responds to Jose Mourinho's Carabao Cup Schedule Complaints

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has responded to Jose Mourinho's claims that Tottenham may have to sacrifice the Carabao Cup this season due to their compact fixture schedule, insisting his side will continue to take the competition seriously. Spurs drew 1-1 with Newcastle on Sunday and play Chelsea in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday, before facing Maccabi Haifa in their Europa League playoff two days later. Spurs have taken four points from their opening three games and received a bye in the Carabao Cup  The Europa League clash will be Spurs' seventh game in 18 days and Mourinho has confessed the Carabao Cup - the last piece of silverware Tottenham lifted - comes at the bottom of their priority list as it is not

The Chelsea Lineup That Should Start Against Tottenham

The Chelsea Lineup That Should Start Against Tottenham

Chelsea's performance against West Brom on Saturday epitomised the classic cliche 'a game of two halves' after they recovered from being 3-0 down to salvage a draw, and was not ideal preparation heading into their Carabao Cup tie with Tottenham. Thiago Silva had a debut to forget after being caught out in possession, leading to Callum Robinson's second strike of the day. The 36-year-old centre-back was handed the captain's armband on his first appearance, but it'll be a day he'll want to quickly move on from. Three academy graduates rescued a point for Chelsea despite their big summer of spending, as Mason Mount, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Tammy Abraham struck for Frank Lampard's side. They'll be looking to build on their second-half performance

The Tottenham Lineup That Should Start Against Chelsea

The Tottenham Lineup That Should Start Against Chelsea

Tottenham suffered the disappointment of a controversial last-minute draw at the weekend after putting in a dominant display for much of the match. Newcastle summer signing Callum Wilson rescued a point for Steve Bruce's side from the spot after an extremely contentious handball decision went against Eric Dier. Jose Mourinho's men will be hoping they can bounce back against London rivals Chelsea in mid-week, when they host them in the Carabao Cup fourth round. With a hectic schedule, Spurs will be forced into rotating their squad, which is already suffering somewhat from injuries. That could open the door for summer singing Sergio Reguilon to make his much-anticipated debut and give the likes of Ryan Sessegnon and Tanguy Ndombele another chance to impress. Reguilon

Carabao Cup Roundup: Liverpool Win in Style at Lincoln, Man City Edge Past Bournemouth

The football just keeps on coming. All the football, all the time. You'll have Friday to recuperate a little, but then we'll be straight back into it that evening and all throughout the weekend. But for Thursday night, there were still a few Carabao Cup fixtures to be settled, with Liverpool and defending champions Manchester City among the six teams in action. C'mon then, let's get into it. Ollie Watkins came off the bench to score his first goal for Aston Villa during their routine victory at Bristol City. The former Brentford forward slotted in at the back post just three minutes after his introduction in the second half. The Villans had previously taken a commanding lead inside 14 minutes thanks to strikes from
