Most Liverpool fans have probably spent the last 30-odd hours watching the various videos on social media celebrating their Carabao Cup final victory over Chelsea.

After an entertaining 120 minutes at Wembley, Liverpool triumphed 11-10 in a mammoth penalty shootout which saw all 20 outfield players score.

However, Kepa Arrizabalaga couldn’t replicate what Caoimhin Kelleher had just done by scoring his. Instead, the Chelsea ‘keeper blazed his effort high over the bar and into the jubilant Liverpool supporters.

It was bedlam as Liverpool won their first domestic cup under Jurgen Klopp – and a record ninth League Cup.

Numerous videos have since emerged that show the incredible scenes after Kepa’s penalty.


But we might have just discovered the best one yet.

It comes from BBC journalist, Kyle Walker, and was filming from the press section of the stadium which is just behind the two dugouts.

The video captures a number of different things that you probably haven’t seen before as Kepa steps up to take his penalty.

First, we’ll focus on Klopp.

The German can be seen with his back turned to the action, watching the crowd’s reaction. After they celebrate, Klopp allows himself a few fist pumps before going over to shake hands with Thomas Tuchel. Classy reaction from the Liverpool boss.

Three other Liverpool players couldn’t watch, either. Sadio Mane, Luis Diaz and Thiago all huddled together and weren’t watching as Kepa stepped up. When they realised he’d missed, they all ran onto the pitch to celebrate – including Thiago who pulled out of the warm-up due to a hamstring injury.

Then we’ve got the actual penalty itself. This angle shows just how high Kepa’s penalty actually went. Just look at that ball go halfway up the lower tier!
