Branislav Ivanovic proves to be the hero as Chelsea and Liverpool need Extra Time to sort who will advance to Wembley in March for the League Cup Final. The game proved to be a really spicy affair, with flares kicking of early as Diego Costa got away with what was an absolute deliberate stamp on Emre Can. While we await to hear what the FA decide in terms of retroactive punishment for the stamp, Costa would go on to be denied what was a solid penalty shout before Blues keeper Courtouis had to produce two incredible saves to deny Liverpool a halftime lead. In the second half, the game got more heated as a few clips started producing more cards, 9 in total during the match. The second half also saw a second deliberate stamp from Diego Costa, this time on Martin Skrtel before Mingolet for Liverpool had to produce an incredible save. It was at this time end-to-end and some of the best football on display all season from both sides before the full time whistle blew with the match still scoreless. The 1st half in extra time saw Branislav Ivanovic head in a free kick powerfully. The lapse from Liverpool comes as Mario Balotelli was the man making him, as opposed to a taller defender, who arguably could have but Ivanovic off. The second half of extra time saw Liverpool pour more pressure on but ultimately fail to score, an issue that's haunted them across all their competitions this season. Chelsea will now play the winner of Spurs-Sheffield United.
