This victory is clearly hugely important to the club, with Klopp’s side closing in on the first piece of silverware of the German’s reign.

The Reds will be hoping to channel their successful history when they take on either Manchester City or Everton in February’s final.

  1. Now THIS is what makes Liverpool Football Club great.

    We suffer and moan together.
    Likewise, we rejoice and celebrate together.

    We are the ultimate collective.

    This is what YNWA means to me ultimately.

  2. woo woooo,,,easy lads, we still have 90 minutes to go to win the League Cup, but hell,,YES LADS, well done,,,,,,and to add some sugar, here’s some beautiful words from Luis Suarez : “Everyone that has played for Liverpool knows how important the supporters are. They know that they’re in my heart.’and “You never know what might happen in the future, but if I were to return to England it would only be to play for Liverpool and never for another team.,,,

    • That is so encouraging. Those words give me hope that Luis may return one day.
      It certainly sounds like he has unfinished buisness with us.

      • I thought the same. Actually, it was my first thought but I did not want to be a negative nancy and point it out. And, we don’t really know anything about where, when and how the picture was taken, so let’s give him the benefit of the doubt.
        I’m sure he’s feeling elated and is happy for the squad and the club.

  3. Jobs not done yet but still great to see a happy changing room lets hope it’s
    the first of many….And it’s what this great club and it’s fans are all about.

    • please2..by all means..at whatever cost..get texeira on board..he is such a monster..he is the man that we are waiting for.

  4. After Norwich => 5-4 to Liverpool
    After Stoke => 6-5 to Liverpool

    After West Ham => 7-6 to Liverpool ?!?!

  5. I hope Lucas is wrapped in bubble wrap from here on. No more matches for him until the final I say. Cannot let his Wembley curse strike again. The man deserves his day out in Wembley more than anyone else

  6. we couldnt shoot goals in 120 but finished teh task in matter 5 mins ..happy for teh finals after 4 years ….calm and poised penalties .. can miss was a tension moment

  7. Love the sense of togetherness here. Especially from the ex-players/legends section. Feels like an ever growing family this.

    • The other day was an interview with Brad Jones, who’se doing well for NEC, and he was talking about how much the club and fans did for him after he so horrible lost his kid. He got so much more then he anticipated and way more then was needed to be done. Especially by the club.

  8. Well mignolet converted me this game. Came for high balls, cleared the 6 years box, the defence pushed up as it should, sakho continuously covered kolo’s backside.
    Looks like migs is being coached to improve his game and after being stuck to his line since WBA he came out when needed and his penalty saves were superb. More of this please Simon and we’ll actually have a decent keeper.
    Now to get the goalscoring sorted out.
