Everton League Cup - 25 October 2017

Conte praised Chelsea’s desire after they came from behind to beat Watford Conte praised Chelsea’s desire after they came from behind to beat Watford

Chelsea booked their place in the last eight of the Carabao Cup after a hard-fought 2-1 win over Everton at Stamford Bridge.

Their closest effort came courtesy of David Zappacosta who fired into the side-netting, with Everton a little fortunate to head into the break, just one goal down.

After having been thrashed 5-2 at home by Arsenal, Everton made a decision to sack manager Ronald Koeman and U23 boss David Unsworth is likely to take over the managerial duties for the time being, until a new gaffer is appointed.

And surprisingly, new signing Danny Drinkwater has been handed his Chelsea debut having recovered from a calf injury which has kept him sidelined since joining the club on deadline day.

Antonio Conte: "I am very happy because tonight I saw lots of positive things, above all the performance of the young players: Musonda, Kenedy and Ampadu".

The Blues then went ahead after 26 minutes, Rudiger climbing highest to head Charly Musonda's pinpoint cross back across goal and past goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.

However, a rejuvenated second-half display showed Everton's quality - with a moment of magic from Willian in the 92nd minute ensuring that Dominic Calvert-Lewin's effort soon after was a mere consolation.

"But they made us work hard as well and we were perhaps a bit over-relaxed in the second half", the Chelsea legend added.

The Brazilian played a sharp one-two with Cesc Fabregas before firing an unstoppable shot low to Pickford's left which flew in off the post.

It's unfortunate that the Blues were eliminated tonight, because the domestic cups likely represent the best opportunity for making something special out of a now terrible season.

The former Manchester City shot-stopper had been involved moments before, making a good save before a moment of madness almost cost his side the lead.
