The Carabao Cup marks the first piece of silverware in English football. This season’s final will see a new team since 2017 lift the cup as Westham United knocked out Manchester City in the Round of 16.
Vying to break the monopoly of Manchester City are Chelsea and Liverpool, two of the most dominant teams in recent times. The match will take place at the Wembley Stadium, affectionately known as the Home of Football in England.
If you don’t want to miss it, this guide will show you how to watch the Carabao Cup Final for free on Firestick using three different methods.
The Teams: Chelsea vs. Liverpool
Chelsea have enjoyed lots of success since the appointment of German coach Thomas Tuchel in January 2021. The club’s decline in the Premier League was arrested, and they went on to win the Champions League, the biggest competition in club football. Following their success, they then played against Europa League winners Villarreal and won the Super Cup. They finally crowned it all by winning the Club World Cup final against Palmeiras on Feb. 12. Just a fortnight later, they are in for yet another trophy in the Carabao Cup, otherwise known as the English Football League (EFL) Cup.
Liverpool, on the other hand, are fresh from thrashing Leads United 6-0 to mark their 6-game PL winning run and cut the deficit on league leaders Manchester City to just three points. The club is enjoying a return to form after a poor 2020-2021 season where injuries plagued them, and they barely qualified for the UEFA Champions League just a year after winning the Premier League, and two after their own Europe-conquering exploits. Will they mark their superb season by clinching the first trophy available?
Well, they get a little nod from the bookies, but no one is a clear favorite here. This is bound to be a thrilling encounter and an exciting way to cap off the weekend.

Method 1: How to Watch Carabao Cup Final using Official Apps
Most of the above channels are available through various streaming platforms that can be installed directly from the official Firestick store.
ESPN+ is the perfect app if you’d also like to watch other sports such as MLB, NHL, NBA, MLS games, Boxing, and Tennis. The streaming service provides lots of diverse sports, and it’s arguably the most affordable official app you can use to watch EFL Carabao Cup Final. The streaming service costs just $6.99 a month, and you can even bundle it with Disney+ and Hulu for just $13.99 a month.
However, note that ESPN+ is only meant to be available in the US. This means that you’ll need to use a reliable streaming VPN such as IPVanish if you are outside the region. When you connect to a US server, IPVanish will change your IP address to make you appear as if you are in the region, and ESPN+ will give you access.
Sky Sports will be broadcasting the Carabao Cup final in the UK, and you can also catch it via their streaming service, Now TV. The streaming service offers a Sports Membership package with an option for a day pass or a monthly pass. The day pass costs £11.98, while the monthly subscription is currently available at £25 a month.
Note that, just like ESPN+, Now TV is geo-restricted, and you can only access it outside the UK if you have a VPN. IPVanish provides lots of servers in the UK, so you’ll be able to stream without buffering.

Other streaming services are also available depending on your region.
Method 2: How to Watch the Carabao Cup Final for Free Using Live TV Apks
Live TV streaming apks let users access broadcasts of channels from around the world without requiring a subscription. These apps usually feature several channels that will be broadcasting the Chelsea vs Liverpool game on Sunday, so they are a great way to watch the Carabao Cup final for free on Firestick.
However, there are some precautions you need to take before using any unofficial streaming app.
⚠ Free Streaming Precautions
Free sports streaming has been a huge source of concern for many years among broadcasters and content distributors. This is because, in many cases, these streams are pirated.
To curb the practice, broadcasters have collaborated with ISPs and governments, and the result has been blocking streams, sending copyright notices, and taking legal actions.
👉 For these reasons, we highly advise that you use a VPN if you wish to watch EFL Carabao Cup Final for free on Firestick. This will help hide your activities and anonymize your connection to make you untraceable.
✋ However, you need to choose your VPN carefully as some do not offer good privacy, and others are a streaming nightmare.
