Sunday’s Carabao Cup triumph over Chelsea was a big victory for Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool in many ways. Having won the Champions League and the Premier League in successive seasons, the new look Merseyside team under Klopp went trophyless last season, following a dismal defence of their PL crown and a disappointing elimination in the UCL quarterfinals against Real Madrid.
The win over Chelsea has given the side early access to silverware with them still in the running for all the remaining trophies. This win also broke a bad spell for Liverpool in the Carabao Cup having not won it since 2012.
Naturally, the celebrations were quite extravagant, especially those led by the Liverpool youngsters having tasted silverware for the first time at such an early stage in their careers. Midfielder Harvey Elliott was in the thick of things during Sunday nights’ celebration as he was spotted wearing his winners’ medal and singing and moving to local Liverpudlian drill rapper Hazey’s hit track, Packs and Potions.

The 17-year-old artist is an up-and-coming singing sensation on TikTok in the UK, who is also an ardent Liverpool supporter. With a distinct Scouse accent, Hazey’s music video for the song was shot outside Anfield with the artist sporting a Liverpool training track set and singing from iconic locations near the stadium such as Trent Alexander-Arnold’s wall mural.
Being a drill artist, his songs tend to be dark, violent and nihilistic in their lyrical content but what makes Hazey’s songs attractive to fans is the use of numerous football references. In the lyrics of Packs and Potions, he compares an aspect of selling drugs to a feature of a particular footballer:
“And when they need more, I’m right back like I’m Trent
I get ’round, I don’t sit on the bench”
That he is as reliable as the Liverpool right-back when it comes to his trade.
“Stay on the ball like Agüero
I might slide Milan like I’m Pirlo”
That he is as good as Aguero or Pirlo when it comes to the quality he brings to what he does on the street.
Having already met up with Alexander-Arnold following the success of his song, Harvey Elliott becomes the latest Liverpool player to show his affection for the rapper, welcoming his work to be a part of this grand night for the Merseyside Reds.
