This Sunday at Wembley Stadium Liverpool and Chelsea played an unforgettable match. For the Carabao Cup final, they gave a great show that had millions of people on the edge of their seats until the final whistle. For almost 120 minutes the score was 0-0, but that was no credit to the match, which was thrilling from start to finish.

However, with only a few minutes left before the end and penalty shootout, Harvey Elliott sent in a floated cross from the right corner and Virgil Van Dijk connected with a beautiful header that made it impossible for goalkeeper Petrovic to save. Thus, the Dutch defender gave The Reds their first title of the season and allowed thousands of fans around the world to celebrate.

But that was bad news for Manchester United. Not just because of the historic rivalry between the two clubs, but for an even deeper reason. With the Carabao Cup 2024, Liverpool became the club with the most titles in English football history, with 68, surpassing by one The Red Devils, who for decades held that honor.

And that could get even worse in the coming months, as Jurgen Klopp's team has a concrete chance of winning three more tournaments this season: they are top of the Premier League standings competing with Manchester City and Arsenal, in the round of 16 of the FA Cup (where they will face Southampton) and in the same stage in the UEFA Europa League (their rivals will be Sparta Prague). Erik Ten Hag's team can only compete for the FA Cup, where they will face Nottingham Forest on Wednesday.

The difference is international

In the title comparison between the two clubs, Manchester United have an advantage in domestic tournaments (considering the league, FA Cup, EFL Cup and Community Shield) of 59 to 54. But outside England is where The Reds make the difference: they have won 14 international titles, to The Red Devils' 8.
