Report: What Klopp's players did after getting off the team plane back in Liverpool following Carabao Cup win

There was no party upon the Liverpool players arriving back on Merseyside with the Carabao Cup on Sunday night.

According to The Athletic, The Reds touched down at John Lennon Airport just after midnight. After heavy traffic in London had delayed their flight, Klopp’s squad drove straight home individually.

It adds that the mentality to not allow the party to continue proves that the Liverpool squad remain very determined to make this season even more successful.

The Reds’ celebrations were totally confined to the dressing room back at Wembley.

While the players deservedly celebrated their triumph, the joyous scenes were not allowed to overspill. There are three further trophies potentially to win this season, after all.

The report states that Klopp then allowed his player’s a well-earned day off on Monday for recovery.

With the likes of Mohamed Salah, Virgil Van Dijk and Fabinho having played the full 120 minutes, this is welcome news.

The full squad will return to training today ahead of tomorrow’s FA Cup clash with Norwich City at Anfield.

Mentality monsters

This is certainly not the best time for a party if you’re Liverpool.

After Wednesday’s game against Norwich, The Reds then play West Ham United in a big game on Saturday.

Inter then travel to Anfield the following Tuesday for the Champions League round of 16 second-leg.

In total, Klopp’s team have six games over the course of the next 19 days. Although it’s great to have the Carabao Cup in the bag, there are unquestionably bigger prizes at stake this season.

Other teams may have felt the need to hit the town to celebrate a piece of silverware not won for a decade.

But this Liverpool side are built differently, after the post-game celebrations at Wembley, full focus will be on ensuring they are still fighting on four fronts by the time the international break comes around in three weeks or so.

Focus on Norwich

For now, attention turns to the other domestic cup and the visit of Premier League strugglers, Norwich.

The Canaries gave Liverpool a tricky game in February, taking the lead before being seen off 3-1 late on.

Winning the trophy at the end of a gruelling 120 minutes against Chelsea will mean that tired legs don’t feel as tired as they could have done.

But it’s important that Klopp utilises his squad at Anfield.

The likes of Takumi Minamino, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Joe Gomez are more than good enough to see The Reds through this game and should be called upon on Wednesday night.
