Fans can watch the Liverpool vs. Stoke City football match live online and see which team moves through to the 2016 Capital One Cup final.
The match kicks off Tuesday at 7:45 p.m. from Anfield.
The team goes into the second leg against Stoke City with a 1-0 advantage, and coach Jurgen Klopp said his team is in need of no extra motivation.
“I am really fine with our reaction to the result in the (Norwich) game, but I didn’t like our start,” he told ESPNFC.
“The first 15 minutes I have no words for and we’ve had this situation three or four times this season. The striking back mentality is much better than we had when we came but now we really have to find a way to start on our highest level in each game, not only in some.”

Klopp added that he expects a tight contest and an exciting one given the setting in Anfield.
“We have to fight for every single ball, every single yard and that is easy,” he said. “I’ve heard about the special atmosphere at Anfield in semi-finals and I am really looking forward to it.”
The setting may end up having a big influence on the match. Liverpool has made a second home at Anfield in the League Cup, with no losses in semi-final leg games there. The team has won eight and drawn seven in final four games played there.
There could be extra motivation for Stoke as well. Fans who watch the Liverpool vs. Stoke City football match live online will see a Stoke squad with its back to the wall. Coach Mark Hughes is trying to urge his team to take advantage of the opportunity in Tuesday’s match, with the team having the opportunity to reach their first League Cup final since 1972.
“It has been 40-odd years, and we remind the players of that because this is an opportunity to make your mark in the game,” he said. “When that presents itself, you really have to grasp it. It is an opportunity we are not going to allow pass by lightly. We are going to give it everything – it is a chance for everybody involved here to achieve something that hasn’t been achieved for many years.”
