Chelsea failed to overturn 2-0 deficit and was eliminated from the Capital One Cup. Watch highlights now!
Chelsea failed to score again against Swansea City and was eliminated by a 2-0 aggregate score in the semifinals of the Capital One Cup Wednesday.
Swansea won the first leg, 2-0, and controlled the tempo in a 0-0 tie in the second leg. Chelsea's frustration showed as Eden Hazard scuffled with a ballboy behind the goal and was red-carded in the 80th minute.
The Swans, 10th place in the Premiership, advanced to a Capital One Cup final date against Bradford City, scheduled Feb. 24 at Wembley Stadium. Swansea reached the finals of a major tournament for the first time, having been eliminated in the semifinals of the FA Cup in 1926 an '64.
Chelsea had its best chances early.
Demba Ba went down in the penalty area in the seventh minute, but referee Chris Foy allowed play to continue.
Swansea then took over. Wayne Routledge played Michu in alone on Peter Cech, who saved in the 10th minute. Michu then found Julian de Guzman, whose attempt was stopped by defender Tim Cahill.
In the second half, Chelsea upped the tempo as Juan Mata fired a 20-yard drive with 18 minutes to go that Gerhard Tremmel expertly held on to, while Torres was introduced with 13 minutes remaining to try and rescue the game.
However, all hopes of a comeback faded after Hazard received his marching orders with 10 minutes to go after bizarrely kicking a ball from underneath a ball boy, who appeared to be lying on the ball to waste time.
Swansea ended up looking the likelier side to score late on as Ki Sung-Yueng and Nathan Dyer wasted opportunities,
