“Semi-final here we come”! Those are the words that Chelsea should be screaming after their beautiful peformance against Derby. Mourinho may not have won a trophy for Chelsea last year, but it looks as if he’s ready to restore blue to the sky by claiming the Capital One Cup!
Hazard opened up the scoreline in the 23rd minute! Perhaps he should start wearing flashing lights on his shirt just so that people know the danger that he brings! Filipe Luis then doubled the Blues’ lead in the 56th. In the eyes of many, the game had been won from this point.
Derby regained a bit of pride and passion as Bryson scored a goal in the 71st minute. However, this was short-lived. Their hopes were quickly booted as Buxton soon recieved a red card and Derby were down to ten men. Oopsy daisy.
This may have saddened Derby, however it boosted the Blues! Schurrle went on to score the final goal of the match in the 82nd minute!
Mourinho’s men are marching into the next stage. Bring it on! They’re ready for it!
