LFC Tops Stoke City In Penalty Shootout, Advances To Capital One Cup Final

Joe Allen converted the crucial penalty kick, as Liverpool secured a place in the Capital One Cup final with a 6-5 shootout victory over Stoke City at Anfield on Tuesday.

Stoke City had to score at least once on the evening, and Marko Arnautovic leveled the series on aggregate in added time at the end of the first half by sweeping a finish past Simon Mignolet from Bojan Krkic’s assist.

No further goals in normal time and the 30 extra minutes meant a shootout, which Jurgen Klopp’s men won after 14 spot-kicks to prompt a chorus of roars and book a showpiece meeting at Wembley with Everton or Manchester City next month.
