The Wembley Stadium was packed with a full capacity crowd in a pulsating affair that was high on drama if not goals.

It ended in a penalty shoot-out that saw all 22 players take a spot-kick with Chelsea’s ball stopper Kepa Arrizabalaga blazing over the deciding kick to hand Liverpool the trophy.

While most cup finals usually see the winners walk away with millions in prize money, the Carabao Cup offers a slender financial boost.

The total pot for the entire tournament stands at just £200,000 – but that is only dished out to those four teams who make it to the semi-finals or further.

The total pot for the entire Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, who both exited the competition at the semi-final stages, have each received £25,000 each for their share.

The runners-up Chelsea land themselves £50,000 while winners Liverpool walk away with £100,000.
