The Reds defeated Chelsea on penalties in the final of the 2021-22 EFL Cup. Meanwhile, it has been a whirlwind few days for Jurgen Klopp’s side, as they got the better of Spurs to end a two game losing streak in the Premier League. The Reds defeated Spurs courtesy of Mohamed Salah’s first half brace. Although Tottenham pulled one back through Harry Kane’s 70th-minute strike, the Reds managed to hold on to the slender lead and secured all three points. The result helped Liverpool to move to the eighth spot in the English top flight standings, having collected 19 points from their 13 games.
William Osula’s brace put Derby 2-0 ahead in the FA Cup first round tie against Torquay United.

Meanwhile Paul Warne’s side are currently occupying seventh position in the Football League One standings, with 25 points to their name from 16 games.
