Liverpool’s Alexis MacAllister shares his thoughts on Moises Caicedo snubbing the Reds for Chelsea

According to, Alexis MacAllister wishes Moises Caicedo the best of luck at Chelsea, but not when they face off at Wembley Stadium tomorrow. The two were Brighton teammates last season, and Caicedo had the opportunity to follow Mac Allister to Liverpool in the summer.

However, the Ecuadorian chose to join Chelsea despite Liverpool’s £110 million deal being accepted by Brighton. By mid-August, Mac Allister had been at Anfield for two months. He agreed to a contract for £35 million, which may rise to £55 million with add-ons.

The duo will be fantastic together on the south coast, but Caicedo has joined Chelsea for £115 million instead. He went on to say, “I was talking to Chelsea for a long time.” It was difficult to say no to Chelsea since they were there to support me.

The two midfielders reunited at Anfield last month, when Liverpool thrashed Chelsea 4-1 in a one-sided Premier League clash. They will compete for the Carabao Cup at Wembley this weekend.

When asked about Caicedo’s choice, World Cup champion Mac Allister remarked of his former teammate: “It’s a personal decision; that’s what he chose, and that’s perfectly fine.” He’s a wonderful athlete and a great man, so I wish him the best – but not on Sunday!”

The Argentina international added: “The World Cup made me recognise that I truly want to win more titles, so this is a great chance. It will be my first final with Liverpool, and my first chance to win something.”So it’s going to be something extremely meaningful for myself and my team. We must go out there, give our all, play the game we want to play, and attempt to win.”

Liverpool has been hampered by injury, with Mohamed Salah, Darwin Nunez, and Dominik Szoboszlai all battling simply to make the bench. Trent Alexander-Arnold, Diogo Jota, Thiago Alcantara, and Curtis Jones, all of whom were expected to participate, are all injured.

No. 1 custodian Alisson, who would have been benched in favour of League Cup shot-stopper Caoimhin Kelleher, is also out. However, captain Virgil van Dijk, who scored a critical goal in the midweek league victory over Luton Town, has urged Chelsea not to overlook an injury-plagued Liverpool.
