Carabao Cup kicks off Liverpool's Quadruple quest, while Chelsea's Kepa-for-Mendy gamble backfires

The first trophy of the English season was claimed on Sunday

in some style, as Chelsea and Liverpool played out a Carabao Cup final for the ages at Wembley

The sides combined to put the ball in the back of the net on four occasions

only for the offside flag to go up after each instance. Yet, despite the theatrics, 120 scoreless minutes passed.

Edouard Mendy and Caoimhin Kelleher were largely the reason why.

They were nothing short of superb, each keeping their team in the contest numerous times.

 in fact, the keepers would determine this final.

Kepa Arrizabalaga was introduced for the shootout, replacing Mendy in the final moments of extra-time.

He and Kelleher failed to stop any of the first 20 penalty attempts

Liverpool keeper converted try no. 21

only for spot-kick specialist Kepa to sky his effort well over the bar to see the Reds win an 11-10 penalty shootout.

So, what can we take from Sunday's truly epic game? Mark Ogden (Liverpool)

James Olley (Chelsea) break down the contest from both perspectives.
