Mario Melchiot’s Winning Formula: Chelsea Set to Conquer Liverpool in League Cup Final Showdown!


Former Chelsea defender Mario Melchoit has given his verdict on the final between Liverpool and Chelsea on Sunday. The two clubs will be locking horns with each other to secure the first silverware of the season.

Mauricio Pochettino will be looking to clinch his first silverware with The Blues after s disastrous season so far. On the other hand, Jurgen Klopp’s side will be eyeing to give a glorious farewell to their manager by winning some silverwares. This is the first of four trophies that the Merseyside giants could yet win this campaign to make it a fairy-tale ending.

Mario Melchoit backs Chelsea to just edge over Liverpool

Ex-Chelsea icon Mario has the back of his side for their showdown at the Wembley Stadium. Speaking on the Sky Sports News channel, he said,

“Look, this is a final. On the day of a final it’s not always the team that is in the best form that wins. I have to say I think Chelsea maybe have the opportunity… Maybe that is the fan talking. I’ll go for 2-1.

If it comes to penalties I’m a little worried so they have to get it [won] in the game. Liverpool is the favourite. I guarantee they have their chances. But Chelsea can squeeze a 2-1 victory.”

Liverpool are still in the mix for Premier League, FA Cup and Europa League trophy, so a defeat on Sunday may not be that gloomy for them. However, for Chelsea, this is a great opportunity to give their fans a sigh of happiness. The Blues are suffering since the takeover of Todd Boehly and co. from Roman Abramovich. They currently sit mid-table and are also crawling to finish at a respectable spot. This trophy can give them a boost for the upcoming fixtures and a cause for fans to celebrate this plain going season.
