Three-word banner in Liverpool away end says everything about new Jurgen Klopp revolution.



As soon as the final siren blew at Craven Cottage, Liverpool were pronounced finalists in the Carabao Cup, and an ecstatic away crowd began to recite their hymn sheets with a sigh of relief.

Diogo Jota, Joe Gomez, and Jurgen Klopp were all serenaded prior to their formal advancement to their third domestic cup final in two years, which was commemorated with a simple one-word chant.They chanted “Wembley! Wembley!” well into the evening in West London, and the heartfelt booing from the home end in response to the congratulatory message played over the tannoy at Craven Cottage revealed precisely what the Fulham supporters thought of the situation. Their actions were disproportionately blamed for its precipitous decline.Marco Silva’s squad came perilously close to defeating the Reds for the third time in less than two months, but were unable to capitalise on their considerable efforts once more. If the hosts are weary of seeing their visitors from Merseyside, Klopp won’t want to face the Cottagers again any time soon.

A 3-2 aggregate victory advances Liverpool to the final after a 1-1 draw on the night, and supporters can begin making preparations for another visit to Wembley in late February, where Chelsea awaits once more.Thousands of Fulham supporters practically raised white flags prior to kickoff in celebration of the club’s first-ever League Cup semi-final appearance at home. Their players, on the other hand, did anything but that as they relentlessly pursued a way back into the match early on.


However, after observing Jota and Darwin Nunez score four goals each to compensate for the absence of the injured Mohamed Salah at Bournemouth, it was Luis Diaz’s turn to score. Diaz’s early strike easily beat Bernd Leno after he deflected past Timothy Castagne after receiving a magnificent, raking diagonal pass from the outstanding Jarell Quansah.


In the two No.8 positions, Ryan Gravenberch and Harvey Elliott provided the midfield thrust by continuously occupying positions that enabled them to advance at the Fulham backline.While players such as Stefan Bajcetic and Thiago Alcantara have spent the season attempting to get fit, Curtis Jones and Dominik Szoboszlai have established themselves atop a midfield unit that has been in a state of considerable flux over the past six to eight months or so. However, tonight was a good night for both Gravenberch and Elliott, who, at the age of twenty-one and twenty-one, respectively, have promising, long-term prospects with the club.With Szoboszlai recovering from injury, Alexis Mac Allister in outstanding form, and Wataru Endo returning from duty in Japan the following month, Klopp has an abundance of central options.


At this late hour of January, the ‘Great Midfield Rebuild’ that was initiated in the summer at an estimated cost of £150 million appears to be bearing fruit magnificently. Furthermore, the late substitute appearance of the elegant Bobby Clark is cause for cautious optimism.After substitute Harry Wilson had evaded Conor Bradley too easily with a pass by Issa Diop off his thigh, a tense end ensued. However, Liverpool’s resiliency was not depleted when it was most critical. They venture into the final.


It is highly unlikely that Klopp and his administrative staff deliberated on how to rediscover the qualities that had made Liverpool one of the most feared teams in Europe prior to the previous season. Almost certainly, this competition was not a topic of discussion.When we first spoke in July, the League Cup was not at the top of our priorities. However, we are well aware of the importance of advancing to the final and how that can help the club achieve other, more prestigious goals. Those who are able to attend the Wembley event later next month will certainly not forget the experience.


They once more face Chelsea in the cup finals, where the two clubs are preparing to write another chapter in their recent history together. Two years ago, the Reds defeated their opponents in both domestic cup competitions. On February 25, they will travel to the national stadium with the expectation of achieving three consecutive victories.While some may ridicule and attempt to diminish the League Cup, Liverpool is well aware of the significance of having their name emblazoned on this prestigious trophy. They are presently striving to add a record-setting ten victories to their collection of honors and are still cognizant of how their recent experience in 2022 can serve to infuse additional vigor, momentum, and confidence into the remainder of the campaign.Even more is literally at stake at this moment in a season where the Premier League leaders, who will host Championship opposition Norwich in the fourth round of the FA Cup this weekend, still have a last-16 Europa League tie to contend with.Are we poised for yet another formidable assault on four trophies? Despite the fact that the upcoming weeks will be instructive in that regard, supporters continue to have faith in this team.


This is demonstrated by the away end banner that urged opposing fan bases to “imagine themselves in our position.” This final third of the season is already shaping up to be phenomenal.
