‘The party was in the dressing room. Loud music on the bus, no music on the plane and then we got home at 12.30am. 

‘Boys had a day off yesterday and we train again today. The celebrations were not too much.’

Liverpool had to ‘remind Kostas Tsimikas of his responsibilities’ after disgusted fans spotted him spitting gum into the stands below Wembley’s Royal Box after beating Chelsea.

Elliott was a late addition to the substitutes’ bench pre-game following an injury to Thiago Alcantara in the warm-up. The teenager came on in the second half to become the first 18-year-old ever to represent Liverpool in a major final and he went on to score a penalty in the shootout.

After the Reds had sealed their win over Chelsea, the players celebrated in front of their fans and a smoke bomb was thrown down on to the pitch.

Elliott proceeded to pick up the smoke bomb, before celebrating with it on the field of play – much to the delight of the Liverpool fans inside Wembley Stadium.

The FA wrote to Elliott about the incident, which was caught by the Sky cameras, while Liverpool declined to comment.

The midfielder, who grew up as a Liverpool fan but only joined the club in 2019, became the youngest player to represent Liverpool at Wembley on Sunday evening. 

Following a goalless stalemate after 120 minutes, the Carabao Cup final came down to 22 penalties. No Liverpool player missed from the spot with substitute Kepa Arrizabalaga skying the crucial spot-kick over for Chelsea.

The goalkeeper was brought on by Blues boss Thomas Tuchel late on in extra-time especially for the spot-kicks but he gave Liverpool an 11-10 penalty shootout victory by blazing his effort over the bar. 

The victory for Jurgen Klopp’s side ended a dominant period for Manchester City in the Carabao Cup, after they won it for four straight years between 2018 and 2021.

Talk of Liverpool possibly winning the quadruple this season has gathered momentum following Sunday’s success but Klopp refused to be drawn on the subject.

‘We are not close to thinking about crazy stuff like that (winning the quadruple),’ he added.
