Carabao Cup final: Pochettino warns referee ahead of Chelsea vs Liverpool clash


Chelsea Manager, Mauricio Pochettino has called for “fairness” from referee Chris Kavanagh, ahead of their Carabao Cup final against Liverpool on Sunday.

Pochettino has said he does not like several decisions that went against his team in their 4-1 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield on January 31.

With the Carabao Cup representing Pochettino’s first chance to win silverware with the Blues, he has sent a message to Kavanagh about officiating.

Jurgen Klopp, on the other hand, is looking to secure more silverware before departing Anfield in the summer.

“When we played against Liverpool at Anfield, I think too many decisions … not one key decision was for us.

“Two penalties were not given. Duels, 50-50s, always for another colour. Always red. I want to be treated in a fair way

“Of course, we are going to celebrate. I am the first who is going to say that Liverpool is amazing and Klopp is one of the best coaches in the world

“But I think after my last experience playing there, what I want in Wembley is to go there and not feel the pressure. It is to play a game at the same level and the best team will win. But not to feel the pressure of people around,” Pochettino told a press conference.
