Liverpool qualified for the English League Cup final on Wednesday, which they will play on February 25 at Wembley against Chelsea, earning a 1-1 draw on Wednesday at Fulham. Jürgen Klopp's men, current Premier League leaders with five points ahead of Manchester City (and a game more) won 2-1 in the first leg in their Anfield Road lair, and thought they had done the hardest.
From the 11th minute, they even thought they were completely safe. Diaz infiltrated the left of the area, and his sharp shot at the near post deceived the opposing goalkeeper (1-0, 11th). The Reds then controlled the match for a long time, until Fulham's hopeful goal, scored by French central defender Issa Diop a quarter of an hour from the end of regulation time (1-1, 76th). In front of the excited London public, Liverpool suffered the storm in the final minutes of the match. The Mersey players gave in but did not break. They won with a cumulative score of 3-2 over the two matches.
