Mauricio Pochettino said Chelsea can go into next weekend's League Cup final with greater belief after ending Manchester City's 11-game winning run with a 1-1 draw at the Etihad on Saturday.

Rodri's late equaliser extended City's unbeaten run at home to 34 games, stretching back to November 2022. A point was only enough to edge Chelsea back up to 10th. But, the Argentine is sensing the chance to lift his first trophy in English football at Wembley next weekend against an injury-hit Liverpool. "We need to feel that it is possible to beat Liverpool," said Pochettino, whose side were thrashed 4-1 by the Reds last month.

"I think we are going to play the second best team in the world [after City]. I think belief is the most important thing and now we need to recover and prepare for the final. Today was a really good game to show we are improving. Still we are not on the level of Man City, we are a young team that need to live these type of games to improve."
