Van Dijk last laugh Keys fumes decision Liverpool Chelsea

Richard Keys criticizes VAR decision that ruled out Van Dijk's goal in Liverpool's Carabao Cup final win over Chelsea.

Liverpool's Virgil van Dijk had the final say in the Carabao Cup final match against Chelsea, but not without controversy. Former Sky Sports regular and now beIN Sports presenter Richard Keys criticized the VAR decision that ruled out Van Dijk's first goal for Liverpool. The match at Wembley Stadium ended with Liverpool winning 1-0, thanks to a header from Van Dijk.

Both teams had numerous chances to score, hitting the goal post and missing opportunities. Van Dijk's first goal, around the 60-minute mark, was disallowed after a VAR check. Referee Chris Kavanagh ruled out the goal due to Liverpool midfielder Endo being judged offside during the build-up and blocking Levi Colwill's run.

Keys expressed his frustration with the decision, stating that the officials were "killing the game" and that it had "gone too far." Andy Gray, also in disbelief, echoed similar sentiments, describing the decision as "flabbergasting."

Despite the VAR controversy, Liverpool emerged victorious, with Van Dijk scoring another header near the end of the game from a corner. The defender expressed his happiness, stating that winning the trophy was an incredible feeling and that it was the first trophy he had won as Liverpool captain.

Van Dijk described the match as intense for both teams, with opportunities for everyone. He dedicated the win to the fans and emphasized the importance of enjoying the victory. The game was a testament to the resilience and determination of both teams, ultimately resulting in Liverpool's triumph.
