Reaction and news has continued to flow after Liverpool beat Chelsea to win the League Cup agains the odds.

 

A positive round-up, but first… Endo’s on crutches

Today’s round-up is full of reaction to Sunday’s League Cup final win, as we continue to bask in the success of Liverpool’s youngsters.

There is, however, a game on Wednesday night that Liverpool’s players will want to win. One man who likely won’t be involved is Wataru Endo.

After putting in an incredible shift across the 120 minutes at Wembley, he was seen leaving the ground on crutches with an air boot on.

This doesn’t necessarily mean he has sustained a problematic injury, but it isn’t a good sign for those wanting to see him face Southampton.

We think that he picked up the knock when Moises Caicedo caught him after Endo knocked the Ecuadorian off the ball in the middle third.
