Liverpool advance to League Cup final

1:20 pm on 26 January 2012

Craig Bellamy scored the decisive goal against his former club as Liverpool reached the League Cup final by beating Premier League football rivals Manchester City 3-2 on aggregate.

A thrilling semi-final second leg finished 2-2 at Anfield but the advantage carved out in Manchester a fortnight ago booked Liverpool a date at Wembley next month where they will face Championship side Cardiff City.

Cardiff had booked their place by beating fellow Championship side Crystal Palace 3-1 on penalties Wednesday after a 1-1 aggregate result.
