Dejan Lovren posted a selfie of Jurgen Klopp’s triumphant Liverpool side in the Anfield dressing room after the Reds booked their place in the League Cup final.

The Reds eased to a 6-5 penalty shootout victory over Stoke City after Joe Allen dispatched the winning spot-kick after Peter Crouch, Emre Can and Marc Muniesa missed their attempts.

Marko Arnautovic levelled the tie on aggregate in the first half after he placed a finish past Simon Mignolet despite being marginally offside.

Liverpool were unable to respond but Stoke couldn’t find a winner in normal time and extra-time before Allen sealed a 6-5 penalty shootout win.

Lovren, who didn’t feature in the second leg against Stoke, posted the above photo and wrote on his Instagram page: “Wembley we cominggggg…what a fantastic game!! Well done everyone 👏🏻👏🏻 💪🏻💪🏻 #YNWA comeeee onnnnn”

The Reds are bidding to win the competition for the ninth time after reaching their 12th League Cup final on Tuesday night.
