When is Carabao Cup final? Date, venue and kick-off time as Liverpool take on Chelsea

Liverpool booked their place in the Carabao Cup final with a win over Fulham on Wednesday night.

Liverpool will take on Chelsea in the Carabao Cup final after they held off Fulham in the semi-final second-leg.

Luis Diaz opened the scoring at Craven Cottage as Bernd Leno failed to keep out the Colombian’s tame effort. Going into their encounter with Marco Silva’s side, the Reds held a one-goal advantage after their 2-1 win at Anfield two weeks ago.

Willian handed the Cottagers a first-half lead but Liverpool fought back through Curtis Jones and Cody Gakpo. A cagey start from the hosts handed the impetus to Jurgen Klopp’s men and they capitalised but in the dying embers, Issa Diop levelled proceedings on the night.

When is Carabao Cup final?

The match will be played on Sunday, February 25, 2024, at Wembley Stadium in London. Kick-off is yet to be given a designated slot but was played at 4:30pm last year.

Liverpool are due to play Luton Town on Saturday, February 24 but with their progression in the Carabao Cup, they will have their game rescheduled for another date. Chelsea were due to lock horns with rival Tottenham Hotspur on Friday, February 23, but that showdown has been postponed for a later date.
