Andy Robertson slams Chelsea star for 'really bad' incident in Carabao Cup final defeat to Liverpool

Andy Robertson slams Chelsea star for 'really bad' incident in Carabao Cup final defeat to Liverpool

Robertson was not happy at all.

Liverpool star Andy Robertson has slammed a Chelsea player for a 'really bad' incident that happened during the Carabao Cup final.

Liverpool overcame their injury woes to beat Chelsea 1-0 in the final of the Carabao Cup at Wembley on Sunday.

Virgil van Dijk scored the crucial goal with minutes of extra-time left to play, securing a famous win for a Liverpool side full of young and inexperienced academy players.

Klopp turned to young substitutes Bobby Clark, Jayden Danns, Jarell Quansah and James McConnell in the second half, and they didn't let their manager down.

Klopp was forced into that situation by the injury absences of key players like Mohamed Salah, Darwin Nunez, Diogo Jota and Dominik Szoboszlai.

Now another first-team player will join them on the sidelines.

Ryan Gravenberch started the game at Wembley, but the 21-year-old summer signing was stretchered off in the first half following a late challenge from Chelsea midfielder Moises Caicedo.

The Ecuadorian caught Gravenberch above the ankle with his studs, but escaped punishment from both referee Chris Kavanagh and the Video Assistant Referee.

The Dutchman was spotted using crutches and wearing a protective boot during Liverpool's trophy celebrations.

After the game, Robertson slammed £115 million Chelsea star Caicedo.

"Ryan’s [injury] is a really bad tackle," the Scottish left-back said.

Gravenberch had to be stretchered off (

"You can’t paint it any other way. It’s a really bad tackle on his ankle and you’ve just got to hope it’s not as bad as the pain he was feeling on the pitch.

"So fingers crossed for that one and and hopefully, slowly but surely, we get the lads back because it is mounting up now and we have to keep going the way we’re going just now.

"But hopefully we start introducing players back into the squad and we get stronger and stronger. Then hopefully we’ll be back to a fully fit squad soon enough that we can really push until the end of the season."

Klopp wasn't happy either, and criticised the referee for not booking Caicedo.

"It was not even a foul! He did not even whistle a foul! Then the fourth official explains to me that they cannot give a card. Oh, good idea!" Klopp fumed after the game.

"We saw a Chelsea foot stamping on the ankle, it’s everything you need for a card.

"I hope it’s not bad, they did the X-ray so it’s not broke, but the ligaments got something and that’s how it is. It’s all bad, but everything else is really good."
