Chelsea’s Ivanovic Kills Liverpool

fifa 15

Branislav Ivanovic’s extra-time header sent Chelsea into the League Cup final at Liverpool’s expense as the London club edged a breathless semi-final second leg 1-0 on Tuesday.

The 34-year-old now has only the FA Cup and Europa League to aim for, while Chelsea remain on course for three trophies after bouncing back from their humiliating 4-2 loss to third-tier Bradford City in the FA Cup.

“This is a new Liverpool team and a very difficult opponent, so I’m even happier because we beat a very good team over two legs,” Mourinho said.

The gruelling encounter at an electrified Stamford Bridge will have taken its toll on Mourinho’s squad, however, ahead of Saturday’s crucial home game against title rivals Manchester City in the Premier League, with Cesc Fabregas notably forced off by injury.

Chelsea striker Diego Costa is also at risk of respective punishment after twice appearing to stamp on Liverpool players — Emre Can in the first half and Martin Skrtel, with whom he fought a running battle, in the second.

Asked about the threat of a ban, Mourinho replied: “Let Costa play his football.”

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers told Sky Sports: “I thought they were outstanding. Over the course of two legs, we were the better team.

“We had good opportunities to score, but didn’t score. I feel nothing but pride, really, because the players gave everything.”

Last week’s first leg had also been a spiky affair and a number of contentious incidents made referee Michael Oliver the centre of attention during a break-neck first half in west London.

Eden Hazard Would Seem Selled by Chelsea

Chelsea could be willing to listen to huge offers for Eden Hazard this summer, as they’re no longer solely dependent on his abilities to win the matches, according to reports in France.

French newspaper Le 10 Sport carries a rather speculative piece of gossip this morning, suggesting that though the Blues have thus far laughed off all supposed approaches for their star man, they could adopt a different stance when this season finishes.

CHELSEA’S STAR SPINE

The frame of the rumour is based around the fact that the 2014 arrivals of Nemanja Matic, Francesc Fabregas and Diego Costa have given Chelsea an immeasurably strong core, meaning that Hazard is no longer the natural go-to-guy when Mourinho’s men look to break forward. Indeed in past campaigns they have relied heavily on the Belgian winger, with last term seeing him at his brilliant best.

However the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid have never disappeared entirely from the picture, and both clubs have the sort of funds necessary to forge a deal for Hazard if there’s any scope for Chelsea selling him.

FUNDS TO DO THE DEAL

The 23-year-old, who is on a cushy £185,000-a-week deal at Stamford Bridge, is rightly regarded as one of the best players on the continent, but as was proven with the cases of Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Luis Suarez, every footballer has his price.
