The Blues secured our place in the Capital One Cup quarter-finals with a 2-0 win over Arsenal at the Emirates last night. Here, the official Chelsea website looks back on the game through pictures…
Ahead of kick-off Jose Mourinho and his opposite number Arsene Wenger share a joke on the sidelines. It was the first time the two men had gone head-to-head since the Portuguese returned to England.
Cesar Azpilicueta wheels away in delight after breaking the deadlock with his first Chelsea goal, capitalising on a mistake by Arsenal defender Carl Jenkinson.
Kevin De Bruyne, making his first start since the game against Swindon Town in the previous round, takes on Jenkinson. It was an impressive performance by the Belgian.
Juan Mata celebrates with Samuel Eto’o and David Luiz after doubling our advantage midway through the second half with a stunning strike from outside the penalty area.
David Luiz was an unused substitute in Sunday’s win over Manchester City, but the Brazilian was restored to the starting line-up at the Emirates, partnering Gary Cahill in the centre of defence.
Mourinho and Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil, who worked together at Real Madrid, embrace at the final whistle.
The 9,000 travelling Chelsea supporters were in fantastic voice throughout, and John Mikel Obi and Michael Essien thank them for their backing at the end of the game.
