Liverpool

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...

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...

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, which secured them 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 from...

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.

Sakho impresses but Liverpool's lack of a finishing touch is costly

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers was proud of his side's performance against Bolton in the FA Cup but had a few words to say about the referee's decisions during the match.

On a day of FA Cup shocks the name of Liverpool was rarely in danger of being added to the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City, both of whom were knocked out.

Despite plenty of possession vs. Bolton, however, it is also true that Brendan Rodgers' side were not in close proximity to victory either and, after a 0-0 draw, must travel for a replay.

The key creative players were wasteful on too many occasions at Anfield and those who had been promoted to first-team duty for rare starts will be returning...

1. Bolton force a rematch at the Reebok Stadium

It wasn't quite a repeat of the FA Cup fourth round's earlier drama on Saturday, but it does at least mean that Liverpool and Bolton will have to go to a replay. There is still the chance of an upset at the Reebok Stadium after this 0-0 draw at Anfield, and Bolton Wanderers and their coach Neil Lennon deserve huge credit...
