Football News: Klopp and Pochettino Face Off in EFL Cup Final

Klopp and Pochettino Renew Managerial Rivalry in EFL Cup Final

As the football world gears up for the highly anticipated EFL Cup final on Sunday, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp and Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino are set to renew their managerial rivalry.

Klopp, who is in his final season at Anfield, will be looking to add another trophy to his impressive collection, having won seven major titles since joining Liverpool in 2015. On the other hand, Pochettino is seeking his first trophy since taking over at Chelsea, as he aims to turn the club’s Premier League fortunes around.

Head-to-Head Record

Ahead of the clash, Sports Mole examines the head-to-head record between the two tacticians. Klopp holds the upper hand, having won seven, drawn five, and lost just one of their 13 previous encounters in all competitions.

Pochettino’s sole victory over Klopp came in October 2017, when his Tottenham Hotspur side recorded a 4-1 triumph over the Merseyside outfit. Since then, the German has enjoyed a dominant run, with Pochettino losing five and drawing two of their last seven meetings.

Previous Final Encounter

The two managers have faced off in a major final before, with Klopp’s Liverpool emerging victorious in the 2019 Champions League final, courtesy of goals from Mohamed Salah and Divock Origi.

As the countdown to the EFL Cup final continues, all eyes will be on Klopp and Pochettino to see who will come out on top and secure the first piece of silverware of the season.
