What a brilliant showdown we have on our hands today as Liverpool and Chelsea battle for the first trophy of the season.
The Reds are looking to get Jurgen Klopp’s long farewell off to the best possible start ahead of his departure in the summer.
They are enjoying a good campaign and are also still in the race for the Premier League, FA Cup and Europa League.
Chelsea, meanwhile, have had a mixed and chaotic campaign, but recent games suggest they are starting to improve.
While today’s win wouldn’t justify spending £1bn on transfers since Todd Boehly took charge of the club in May 2022, it looks like it could be a pivotal moment in Mauricio Pochettino’s tenure at the club.
