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

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.

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.

Lucas Leiva reveals Steven Gerrard text motivation for Chelsea clash

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

Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva will be spurred on by a promise from captain Steven Gerrard when the club meet Chelsea in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday night.

Lucas ruptured a cruciate ligament in the 2-0 quarterfinal win at Stamford Bridge in the competition back in November 2011 and subsequently missed the chance to appear in the 2012 final as Kenny Dalglish's men beat Cardiff City to claim the trophy.

The Brazilian may have missed the showpiece event, but was given a winner's medal at...

Mario Balotelli wants Liverpool stay, agent Mino Raiola says

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers says Mario Balotelli still has a future at the club.

Mario Balotelli's agent Mino Raiola insists the forward is happy at Liverpool, telling Sky Sports News he will "strive to give the manager what he wants" rather than seek a move away from Anfield this winter.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers said after Saturday's 0-0 draw with Bolton in the FA Cup that he had not given up hope of Balotelli making the breakthrough on Merseyside, even though he has yet to open his league account for the club he joined from AC Milan for 16 million pounds in the summer.
