Southampton Dump Liverpool Out Of EFL Cup

Southampton put up an inspired display to beat Liverpool in the second leg of the EFL cup 1-0 (2-0 on aggregate) to advance to the EFL cup final. It is the first major final for the Saints since 2003 and there’s no doubt that their first leg 1-0 victory was equally as important as tonight’s result.

Shane Long scored in injury time to condemn the Reds to defeat and there will be some cause for concern as Klopp has won just one in his last seven games.

Southampton sneaked away with the win despite commanding just 27% possession throughout the affair but Liverpool were guilty of not being clinical enough in front of goal.

Southampton will face Manchester United or Hull City in the final but with Manchester United holding a first leg 2-0 win, it looks like a showdown with the Red Devils is certain.
