Liverpool see odds drift on FA Cup win after Carabao Cup success against Chelsea in London

Liverpool have seen their odds of lifting the FA Cup slashed tonight in the immediate aftermath of their stunning Carabao Cup win over Chelsea at Wembley Stadium, with Dutch center back, Virgil van Dijk heading home in extra time to lift silverware for the Merseyside club.

Leading the Premier League to boot with just 10 matches left to play this season in the domestic league, Liverpool added to their trophy cabinet this afternoon in London, with van Dijk finally finding the net deep into extra time against Chelsea, heading home from a corner – after seeing an earlier effort ruled out for offside.

Following their Carabao Cup success – their second in the last three seasons against London side, Chelsea, Liverpool have now seen their odds of landing the FA Cup slashed as low as +350 – sat just behind holders, Manchester City.

And fans of the Merseyside club can find odds on a host of matches still to play this year over at the Promoguy – who are offering bettors and punters alike the opportunity to bet on a host of competitions and sports before the summer break this season.

Fighting off a late surge from Mauricio Pochettino’s Chelsea side, Liverpool had to call on Irish goalkeeper, Caoimhin Kelleher on numerous occasions – particularly late in the 90 minutes, with the shot stopper preventing midfielder Conor Gallagher finding the net in a guilt edge chance. 

Facing a massive battle to prevent the dominant side of Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City from fighting back to clinch a record-setting fourth straight Premier League crown, Liverpool’s chances of landing just their second Premier League title were greatly enhanced this week with a 4-1 win over promoted side, Luton Town at Anfield in their most recent league match. 

Furthermore, with German head coach, Jürgen Klopp set to depart the dugout at the end of the season, added emphasis is on the Liverpool players to deliver further success for the departting manager this season, in the form of a potential domestic cup double and a Premier League win.

With Klopp set to leave Liverpool come the end of the season, high-flying Spaniard, Xabi Alonso is said to be top of the Merseyside club’s list of managerial targets to replace the former, as he looks to guide German side, Bayer Leverkusen to a stunning Bundesliga title victory this season.

Amongst the likes of former Liverpool midfield maestro, Alonso sees Sporting Lisbon head coach, Ruber Amorin, as well as former Bayern Munich and Red Bull Leipzig head coach, Julan Nagelsmann, who has taken the reigns with the German national team ahead of the European Championships this summer, following his exit from the Allianz Arena. 

As far as this season is to play out, however, Liverpool take on Championship side, Southampton following prior third and fourth round wins over Norwich City, and Arsenal, respectively. 

In the league, Liverpool return to action on Saturday as they travel to the City Ground to take on Nottingham Forrest.
