Liverpool vs Fulham - How it happened

Fulham came into this seeking to make their first EFL Cup final for the first time in their history but early hope faded when Luis Díaz scored to double Liverpool's advantage.

Craven Cottage grew tense as Liverpool controlled the game but the hosts continued to push, refusing to give up.

Despite Fulham's resilience, including Raúl Jiménez's attempt, Andreas Pereira hitting the post and Issa Diop scoring to offer hope, the Cottagers struggled to find the all-important strike.

Harry Wilson tried to level with a fizzing effort, but it flew just wide and Klopp's men stayed firm.

Liverpool’s ninth consecutive match unbeaten took them to Wembley, where they will hope to win this competition a record-extending 10th time.
