Liverpool move clear of Man Utd after Carabao Cup final win as top 10 most successful English clubs named

Liverpool have made history.

Liverpool are officially the most successful team in English football history.

On Sunday, Liverpool beat Chelsea 1-0 after extra-time in the Carabao Cup final.

Virgil van Dijk's 118th minute header proved the difference at Wembley, as Jurgen began the final stretch of his nine-year spell as Liverpool boss with another piece of silverware.

Van Dijk's header - the 42nd attempt on goal of the match - not only clinched the cup for his side, but it also made history.

Liverpool have now won 68 trophies in their history, including domestic and international leagues, cups and super cups.

Before Sunday Liverpool were tied with arch-rivals Manchester United on 67 trophies, but now Liverpool fans can say that their side is officially the most successful in English football history.

United drew level with Liverpool on 67 by winning the final of the same competition last season, when Erik ten Hag's side beat Newcastle United 2-0 at Wembley.

Now, a day shy of exactly one year later, Liverpool have moved clear once again.

Liverpool are in pole position to extend their lead as England's most successful club.

Klopp's side are top of the Premier League, one point ahead of Manchester City, and are among the favourites to win the FA Cup.

In Europe, Liverpool will face Sparta Prague in the last-16 of the Europa League.

United are already out of the Premier League title race and European competition, although Liverpool's great rivals could still win this season's FA Cup.

That several young players played a key role in the win will make the achievement feel even more special for Liverpool fans.

With the likes of Mohamed Salah, Darwin Nunez and Dominik Szoboszlai all unavailable through injury, Klopp turned to inexperienced youngsters including Conor Bradley, Bobby Clark, Jayden Danns, Jarell Quansah and James McConnell to get the job done against Chelsea's expensively assembled squad.

The top 10 most successful English clubs are as follows:

1: Liverpool (68 trophies)

2: Man United (67)

3: Arsenal (49)

4: Chelsea (34)

5: Man City (34)

6: Tottenham (26)

7: Aston Villa (25)

8: Everton (24)

9: Newcastle (13)

10: Nottingham Forest (13)
