Liverpool will be aiming to win their 10th Carabao Cup title when they take on Chelsea – two more than any other side in England. The Reds last lifted the trophy in 2022 and have dispatched Leicester, Bournemouth, West Ham and Fulham on their way to the final. Jurgen Klopp's side are yet to keep a clean sheet in the competition, so expect goals here under the Wembley arch.

Speaking of goals, Chelsea put six past Middlesbrough in the second leg of their semi-final to win 6-2 on aggregate. It followed a run of wins against AFC Wimbledon, Brighton, Blackburn, and Newcastle to set up a repeat of that 2022 final, which Liverpool won on penalties after 120 goalless minutes. Thiago Silva and Trevoh Chalobah are the only remaining players from the Chelsea starting XI that day – will they go one better this year? 

Here's how the teams line up:

Chelsea XI: Petrovic (GK); Gusto, Disasi, Colwill, Chilwell; Caicedo, Enzo; Palmer, Gallagher, Sterling; Jackson

Liverpool XI: Kelleher (GK); Bradley, Van Dijk, Konate, Robertson; Endo, Mac Allister, Gravenberch; Elliott, Diaz, Gakpo.

How to watch the Chelsea vs Liverpool live stream wherever you are

As you'll read below, the Chelsea vs Liverpool live stream will be shown on many different channels across the world, but what if you're not in your home country and want to watch it on your usual streaming service?

The answer is to use a VPN, or virtual private network. A VPN will let you tune into your home coverage from wherever you are — meaning that if you're abroad, you can use one of the best VPN services to watch the games live as if you were in your lounge.

Our favorite right now is ExpressVPN, thanks to its combination of superb speed, great customer service and excellent device support. It also offers a no-questions-asked 30-day money-back guarantee, so you could check it out without having to sign up long-term.


Speed, security and simplicity combine to make ExpressVPN our favorite VPN service. In our testing, we were impressed by its fast connection times and by its ability to access more than 3,000 services in 160 locations across 94 countries. A 30-day money-back guarantee is another bonus.

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN is our favorite.

2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance, if you're in the U.K. and want to view a U.S. service, you'd select U.S. from the list.

3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to ESPN+ or another service to watch the game.
