A single match: Klopp and Conte referred to the two-legged semi-finals at the Carabao Cup

Football in England does not stop and the tight schedule remains as planned, although that arrangement is not to the taste of Jürgen Klopp, coach of Liverpool; nor Antonio Conte, technician of the Tottenham. Specifically, the strategists showed their stance against the semi-final home and away matches of the Carabao Cup.

According to what has been established, the Arsenal vs. Liverpool and Tottenham vs. Chelsea will take place between January 3 and 10. After knowing the official schedule, the leaders of the ‘Reds’ and ‘Spurs’ revealed their desire that the keys to the so-called League Cup be direct elimination, as in all previous stages, to avoid the wear of the athletes.

I think it’s better with just one game, absolutely, but obviously what I’m saying isn’t too important”Were Jürgen Klopp’s first words to the press. Let’s remember that the German coach made big changes in the starting eleven that faced Leicester in the quarterfinals.

If there are two matches, then we will play both. However, it would be useful if there was only one. And I am not talking about the well-being of the players this year, I have been saying it for six years or maybe more“Added the trainer, notoriously uncomfortable.

For his part, Tottenham’s Antonio Conte, who eliminated West Ham, had a similar idea as his colleague. “Honestly, if I have to decide, maybe it will be to play one game and not two. Above all, because of the situation we are experiencing (coronavirus infections), but we have to respect the rules“Said the Italian coach.

It is worth mentioning that the fixture of the ‘Spurs’ will be more complicated, since they must complete the duels against Brighton and Leicester, suspended by COVID-19; and against Burnley, which was not played due to bad weather. For now, the EFL remains firm in its position that the Carabao Cup semi-finals be a double game.
