Carabao Cup

Chelsea defeated AFC Bournemouth on Wednesday night to ensure their progression into the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup.

It took a late winner from Alvaro Morata to avoid extra-time, but the Premier League champions dragged themselves over the line and made it through safely into the next round.

Alvaro Morata scores late-on to ensure Chelsea’s progression to the Carabao Cup semi-finals.

Waiting in the wings for the Blues were Arsenal, Manchester City and Bristol City, the latter defeated Premier League heavyweights Manchester United in late drama at Ashton Gate.

On paper, there are two strong teams there that you would ideally like to avoid, and another that would pretty much give you free passage into the Carabao Cup final.

Thankfully for Antonio Conte, the luck of the draw was on our side and we drew Arsenal! You can start planning for a trip to Wembley.

Who will be facing Manchester City or Bristol City in the final will be decided over two legs, the first of which will be held at Stamford Bridge. Come on you Blues!
