Two players, one Chelsea & one Liverpool, singled out for widespread praise during the Carabao Cup final

Viewers of the showdown between Chelsea and Liverpool this evening have taken to social media in numbers, to lavish praise on two players.

The first piece of major silverware of the English calendar is of course currently being contested over at Wembley.

After ousting Arsenal and Tottenham in their respective last-4 ties, Liverpool and Chelsea have gone toe-to-toe in the capital, in the finale of the Carabao Cup.

As things stand on Sunday evening, the scoreline remains locked at 0-0, albeit not for a lack of trying on the part of both sides.

Chelsea, in particular, have gone close on a whole host of occasions, with the likes of Christian Pulisic and Mason Mount guilty of fluffing their lines from wonderful positions:

On the Chelsea side, meanwhile, the creator in chief comes in the form of Kai Havertz, who, would have bagged at least two assists to this point in proceedings had it not been for the wastefulness of his fellow Blues attackers:
