Chelsea held on at 0-0 until the dying embers of extra-time when Virgil Van Dijk nodded home a 118th minute winner for the Reds.

And the painfully late goal left Blues fans, players and staff crestfallen at the sound of the full time whistle signalling a 1-0 defeat.

Mauricio Pochettino and his players then had to do the unwanted task of heading up on the terraces to collect their runners-up medals.

The Chelsea boss had to walk past execs from both clubs as well as the competition’s sponsor when collecting his medal and fans think that he completely blanked Todd Boehly when doing so.

Fans online were convinced that the 51-year-old Argentine walked directly past Boehly before shaking the hands of the bigwigs next to him – but slow motion replays show that isn’t the case.

Pochettino, in actual fact, reached out his left hand and greeted Boehly with a handshake, but was was rightfully sporting a devastated look on his face following the result.

Fans took to social media after spotting the ‘snub’ and were convinced that Poch had done it on purpose.

One misunderstanding fan wrote: “Pochettino just totally blanked Todd Boehly…”

While another added: “Nice ignore from Boehly to Poch on the walkway. Sacked in the morning I think the song goes.”

While other supporters managed to notice that Poch had indeed shook the hand of his boss.

One wrote: “He shook his hand with his left hand!”

And a second added: “Literally shook with his left hand.”

Pochettino could be forgiven for looking dejected as he watched Liverpool lift the first piece of silverware of the season.

But his side perhaps should have done more with their billion pound squad facing a number of inexperienced academy prospects in the Liverpool team.

Gary Neville labelled Pochettino’s side as the “Blue billion pound bottle jobs” going up against “Klopp’s kids”.

There’s plenty for Poch to think about now, but not much time to wrap his head around it with the London club returning to action on Wednesday to take on Leeds United in the FA Cup fifth round.

And the pressure will only continue to mount on the former Spurs boss if he is unable to progress to the next round with fans already calling his him to lose his job after Sunday’s cup final defeat.
