Liverpool vs Chelsea: preview 

Something barmy always happens when Liverpool and Chelsea meet in the EFL Cup final. Two years ago, Reds keeper Caoimhin Kelleher scored the winning penalty. Rewind another 17 years and the Blues nicked a thriller in extra-time (after John Arne Riise scored the fastest ever goal in a League Cup final, which Steven Gerrard cancelled out with a late clanger). You might want to buckle up for this one.

It's also a potentially career-defining game for Mauricio Pochettino, who's never won a trophy in England before. The Argentine, whose lack of silverware has long been used as a stick to beat him with, reached the Carabao Cup final once before, but fell short against Chelsea.

Jurgen Klopp's men dished out a 4-1 hiding when the teams met two weeks ago, but a lot has changed since then. Diogo Jota and Dominik Szoboszlai, two of the scorers on that day, have joined a lengthy Liverpool injury list, while Chelsea have found a bit of form, going three games unbeaten.

Ironically, it's an injury that seems to have turned the west London team's fortunes around. Thiago Silva's absence forced a reshuffle at the heart of defence, and the tweak appears to have been transformational. Could this be the launchpad for the entire Todd Boehly era, let alone their season?

The winning team will qualify for the playoff round of the Conference League, a prize that Chelsea fans would have sniffed at in seasons past, but would mean the world in current circumstances. Here's how to watch a Liverpool vs Chelsea live stream online, and with the help of a VPN if you're currently away from home.

How to watch Liverpool vs Chelsea from outside your country

We've set out how you can live stream Liverpool vs Chelsea in a number of countries around the world. However, if you're away traveling, you probably won't be able to watch the Carabao Cup final like you normally would at home. This is the result of geo-blocking - best understood as digital borders that restrict certain services and content to specific parts of the world.

A good streaming VPN can let you get around these digital borders, while also offering robust protection from cybercriminals and government snooping. They're also very easy to use.
