Liverpool cruised through to a first Domestic cup final in six years on Thursday with a 2-0 victory over Arsenal in the second leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final. 

After a goalless draw at Anfield a week ago, there was everything to play for at the Emirates and the Gunners started brightly, but a brace from Diogo Jota ultimately downed the hosts.

Jurgen Klopp’s side will now face Chelsea in the final at Wembley on February 27, adding to an already hectic schedule for both sides.

The German will have been particularly pleased with his side’s performance, particularly that of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho and Jota.

The Reds’ victory without both Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah will also have pleased Klopp, who will now lead his side out at a fifth final during his tenure.

Despite his side’s strong performance on Thursday, it appears that Liverpool are still on the lookout for additions to their already talented squad.

Silva is hoping to keep Carvalho’s feet firmly on the ground despite his meteoric rise

According to The Express, the Premier League giants are looking into the possibility of signing Fulham starlet Fabio Carvalho.

The 19-year-old England under-18 international has started 13 Championship games so far this season, scoring seven goals and providing two assists during his first senior season.

The Portugal-born midfielder’s manager, Marco Silva, has warned the player not to get too carried away, however.

Silva has told the teenager not to jump too soon in a bid to elevate his career, warning him of the dangers of failing to stay grounded with such talent at such a young age.

Carvalho scored a brace in the Cottagers’ 6-2 victory over Birmingham on Tuesday, a result that took their goal scoring tally over the past three games to 19.

The player’s contract is set to expire in the summer, and he has so far snubbed any efforts by his current employers to extend his stay in West London.

Liverpool will reportedly face competition from West Ham United for the signing of the promising youngster.

Carvalho made his Premier League debut in May last year, appearing as a second-half substitute in a 2-0 defeat against neighbours Chelsea.
