Coutinho, Skrtel star in Liverpool's spirited cup defeat at Chelsea

ESPN FC's Alexis Nunes goes play-by-play to break down Chelsea's extra time triumph over Liverpool on their way to the Capital One Cup final.

Liverpool were knocked out of the Capital One Cup after a tense, frenetic and often bad-tempered match at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic scored the only goal of the night in the third minute of extra time to seal the Londoners' passage to Wembley, 1-0 on the night and 2-1 on aggregate.

Once more, it came from a long-endured Liverpool flaw: a cross into the box from a set piece. The Serb rose unmarked and unhindered and guided the ball past a helpless Simon Mignolet from close...

Chelsea, Mourinho's mental toughness makes the difference vs. Liverpool

ESPN FC's Alexis Nunes goes play-by-play to break down Chelsea's extra time triumph over Liverpool on their way to the Capital One Cup final.

LONDON -- It was a night almost impossible to predict and that so often threatened to boil over altogether, only to end with an element of crushing familiarity. And that's not referring to Jose Mourinho embarking on another calculated diatribe to deflect attention from the conspicuous negatives on what was otherwise yet another positive evening for Chelsea this season.

No -- it is that they have reached the 12th final of the manager's career thanks to yet another big Branislav Ivanovic goal, which...

Chelsea edge past Liverpool and into Capital One Cup final

Branislav Ivanovic's first goal since Aug. 30 won the tie for Chelsea.

Three thoughts on Chelsea's 1-0 win vs. Liverpool on Tuesday, which secured a place in the Capital One Cup final.

1.   Chelsea battle through

Bad-tempered and bruised but bound for Wembley, Chelsea were taken to the brink by Liverpool, but Branislav Ivanovic's crashing header from a Willian cross was enough. It came early in extra time after 90 minutes in which tempers had frayed to the point of scandal.

Ivanovic was offered the freedom of Liverpool's penalty area by absent-minded man-marking...

Brendan Rodgers and Jose Mourinho have point to prove in Capital One Cup

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol and Craig Burley preview Tuesday's Capital One Cup replay between Chelsea and Liverpool.

The Capital One Cup is usually regarded as a mild inconvenience by the bigger clubs, an irritation that ranks somewhere between defrosting the freezer and paying a large electricity bill. You'd rather not, but it's necessary and people will get cross if you don't bother.

It's comfortably the fourth priority for any English club involved in European competition, unless you're Mike Ashley and you regard the Europa League as even lower.

Of course, teams tend to get a little more serious about the whole...

Liverpool vs. Chelsea rivalry still burning strong after a brief break

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol and Craig Burley preview Tuesday's Capital One Cup replay between Chelsea and Liverpool.

Liverpool and Chelsea resume hostilities on Tuesday night with a place in the Capital One Cup final on the line. For Chelsea it represents their last chance of appearing at Wembley this season after they were dumped out of the FA Cup by Bradford City on Saturday, in what has to be considered one of the greatest upsets in the history of the competition.

The Reds had some lower-league trouble of their own of course, as they failed to beat Championship side Bolton at Anfield. That wasn't ideal preparation...

Are Divock Origi, Saido Berahino worth all the hype? The stats are intriguing

The ESPN FC crew discuss potential moves before the end of the transfer window, whether or not Mario Balotelli will leave Liverpool and Diego Costa's diving.

How do you build for the future in January?

The pressures of the midseason transfer window are largely focused on the here and now. Teams buy in the winter in order to strengthen for the next five months, whether it be for a title race, European push or relegation battle; they don't generally spend with the next five years in mind. But this season has seen several intriguing transfer stories in which the needs of the present and the future overlap.
