The EFL Cup is the first chance in the season for English football clubs to get their hands on some silverware.

For many years, the EFL Cup (or League Cup as it is traditionally known) was viewed only as the second-rate cup competition in English football where upsets were rife but in more recent years the big boys have taken the tournament increasingly seriously.

EFL Cup Final Betting Odds

Liverpool are the clear favourites to lift the EFL Cup in 2024, despite having scraped past Fulham in the semi-finals.

They successfully defended a one-goal advantage going into the second leg at Craven Cottage and emerged with a 3-2 aggregate win thanks to Luis Diaz’s early goal, which means Jurgen Klopp’s side are chasing a second EFL Cup in three years.

To lift the trophy at Wembley on February 25, they must beat Chelsea, who overturned a first leg defeat to thrash Middlesbrough 6-1 in the second leg for an aggregate score of 6-2 with Cole Palmer on target twice in the comprehensive victory.

It could be a huge boost to Mauricio Pochettino in his first year at Stamford Bridge to lift some silverware, with things not going quite as straightforward in the league.

What is the EFL Cup?

The EFL Cup is the knockout cup competition for the Football League.

Unlike the FA Cup, which is open to any club affiliated with the FA in England, the EFL Cup is open only to the 92 Football League clubs.

The competition was introduced in 1960 as the Football League Cup and has changed names multiple times during its history due to a change in sponsor.

The Milk Marketing Board was famously the tournament’s first sponsor leading to the name the Milk Cup. It’s also been known as the Littlewoods Challenge Cup, the Rumbleows Cup, the Coca-Cola Cup, the Worthington Cup, the Carling Cup, the Capital One Cup and the Carabao Cup.

There are seven rounds in the EFL Cup, all of which are single-leg ties. Traditionally, the semi-finals were played over two legs but this was changed for 2021 in a bid to reduce the amount of football that teams have to play.

In addition to winning the first piece of competitive silverware of the season, winners of the EFL Cup are awarded a place in the UEFA Europa Conference League.

EFL Cup Records & Stats

Arsenal have the most wins (13) and also share with Manchester United the most appearances in the final (20). Manchester United also hold an unwanted record, with Everton, for the most losses in the final (8).
