Footage of the brilliant scenes inside the Liverpool dressing room on the back of the club’s Carabao Cup triumph on Sunday has come to the fore online.
The Reds of course made the trip to Wembley earlier today, facing off with Chelsea for the English calendar’s first available piece of silverware.
And, when all was said and done, it was Jurgen Klopp’s men who emerged triumphant, in the most nail-biting manner imaginable.
After a full 120 minutes of action failed to produce a telling winner, proceedings in the capital were forced to a penalty shootout.
From here, no fewer than 20 consecutive spot-kicks were successfully converted, leaving goalkeepers Caoimhin Kelleher and Kepa Arrizabalaga to test their mettle.
And, after the former held his nerve to lash home an impressive effort from 12 yards, counterpart Kepa blazed his own penalty several yards clear of the crossbar, in the process handing the Carabao Cup title to Liverpool:

Kepa’s miss, as expected, sparked delirious celebrations on the part of Liverpool’s players, fans and staff alike, who took full advantage of the opportunity to release two hours+ of tension and pent-up emotion.
As alluded to above, though, the festivities amongst Jurgen Klopp’s ranks did not at all end upon their departure from the Wembley pitch.
Videos posted to the club’s social media platforms have since showcased the post-match scenes inside the Reds’ dressing room, too, with the footage no doubt set to bring a smile to the faces of Liverpool supporters across the globe.
With the likes of Andy Robertson, Kostas Tsimikas and January addition Luis Diaz at the heart of things, Klopp’s stars belted out a joyful rendition of famed chant ‘Freed from Desire’, footage of which can be watched below:
