Chelsea missed out on a rare opportunity to win the Carabao Cup against a depleted Liverpool side on Sunday, losing 1-0 after a late Virgil van Dijk goal in extra time.

However, despite the defeat, the Blues will still get a reward for finishing as runners-up.

Winners of the tournament, Liverpool, will receive £100,000 in prize money, while Chelsea get £50,000.

Middlesbrough and Fulham, who made it to the semi-final stage will each receive £25,000 as compensation.

As previously reported, Todd Boehly promised his Chelsea stars an internal bonus of £20,000 for each player if they won the Carabao Cup, but since they didn’t do so, we aren’t sure if they’ll be getting anything at all from the American billionaire.

Meanwhile, Chelsea are set to resume FA Cup duties with a fifth round clash against Leeds United on Wednesday, and they could end up with a much higher reward of £4m if they manage to win the tournament.
