    • 120+3 Full time! Chelsea have won another Capital One Cup thriller 5-4 at the Bridge and are the eighth and final side to reach the quarter finals. Thanks for joining me tonight! Follow me on Twitter @liamhappe and discuss the action-packed fixtures this evening.
    • 120+2 United are pouring it on but that allows a Chelsea break! They're 3-on-2 up and Hazard shoots low from 20... hits the post!
    • 120+1 Two minutes added on. Can United take us to penalties or will Chelsea hang on in yet another extraordinary League Cup game and another free-scoring clash between these two sides?
    • 120' Giggs steps up for his second and United's fourth... buries it low to his left! Grandstand finish coming up!
    • 119' PENALTY UNITED! Azpilicueta barges down Hernandez as the striker looks to connect with Tunnicliffe's diagonal.
    • 118' Giggs slides down Moses from behind as Chelsea attack again. Spiteful and petulant, it rightly earns a booking.
    • 116' GOAL CHELSEA! Counter from the cleared corner and Hazard makes a mockery of two defenders before sending Ramires clean through. He fakes out Lindegaard, skips round him and slots home. It's not 7-5 but it should be enough to send Chelsea through. 5-3!
    • 115' Fletcher is fouled by Ramires which earns the Brazilian a booking. The free-kick is delivered into the packed box but Luiz puts it behind for a corner.
    • 114' Welbeck had earlier been replaced by Federico Macheda by the way.
    • 113' Ramires puts Moses clean through! Good pressure from the recovering back line to make life difficult for the forward and ultimately it allows Lindegaard to get legs on the shot!
    • 112' Tunnicliffe tries a spectacular volley from Keane's cross but sends it into Row Z.
    • 111' The set piece is cleared before Azpilicueta dispossesses Hernandez as he brings the ball forward once more.
    • 110' The visitors finally find an attacking passage of their own in this fourth and final period and win a corner.
    • 109' The hosts certainly have their tails up but Sturridge's perhaps a bit too much so. With options either side of him going forward, he tries to replicate his effort from moments ago. This time, it's miles over.
    • 108' Lindegaard comes out of his goal to claim a long ball forward ahead of Hazard.
    • 107' Moses and Sturridge keep a dwindling Chelsea attack alive despite being outnumbered 5 on 2. Sturridge cuts inside and unleashes a wonderful 20-yard curler which goes narrowly over!
    • 106' The half-time whistle in extra time has gone and after a quick switch of sides we are back underway already for the final 15 minutes. Can United force penalties?
    • 105+1 Luiz takes the free-kick from 20 yards... hammers it onto the crossbar! Excellent strike but the lead remains one!
    • 105' Keane is booked for holding back Sturridge and only the nearby Wootton's presence was surely preventing a last-man red.
    • 103' Chelsea free-kick on the right wing whipped in by Mata and Cahill heads narrowly wide of the far post.
    • 101' Sturridge holds up another long clearance before teeing up Mata, who is dispossessed by Giggs before he can go for goal from 20 yards.
    • 99' Nani is tackled rather zealously by Oscar on the left wing leading to a pull-apart between the two which sees them both booked.
    • 97' GOAL CHELSEA! They finally lead through Sturridge! Long ball pumped up field after blocking the Hernandez chance and Wootton makes an absolute mess of a backheader attempt allowing the striker to get into the area and round Lindegaard. 4-3!
    • 96' Hernandez twists and turns to find space to shoot... but Bertrand slides in to block!
    • 95' Rafael has a dig for United on the counter but it's well saved by Cech. Here come Chelsea once more and Sturridge is able to control the ball with eight yards between he and goal! He fluffs his lines and can't get a decent effort out, though.
    • 93' Moses has a shot from inside the 'D' closed down.
    • 91' The first period of extra time begins at Chelsea.
    • 90+5' FULL TIME at the Bridge and extra time is forthcoming. Only nine more goals needed in 30 minutes to match yesterday's insanity. Anyone fancy it?
    • 90+4' Hazard will take this one.... SCORES! It's 3-3!
    • 90+3' PENALTY CHELSEA! Wootton stupidly shoves down Ramires in the box!
    • 90' Three minutes added on at the Bridge. Luiz gets a yellow card.
    • 88' The Blues are pouring forward in search of a third equaliser but United so far are keeping them out.
    • 85' Oscar from 25 yards! Excellent drive which Lindegaard pushes away!
    • 83' Superb interplay between Mata and Sturridge leads to the latter firing at Lindegaard.
    • 80' United bring on Ryan Tunnicliffe for Anderson with time ticking away in West London.
    • 76' Moses teed up 10 yards and central! Can only shoot straight at Lindegaard! What a wasted chance.
    • 75' Oscar fires clumsily over as replays show Mata's shot clearly struck the arm of Keane. The youngster did not move towards it too much in fairness but his arm was well out from his upper body, where it could easily stop a ball like it did.
    • 72' Wonderful movement from Mata as he turns around his man and tries to shoot from just inside the box... did that strike the arm of Keane? Ref says no!
    • 71' Another attacking Chelsea sub as Romeu makes way for Oscar moments after Moses almost created his own chance in the box only to mis-control.
    • 68' Azpilicueta! Dashes into the box to meet a chipped Mata cross and heads just wide!
    • 66' Chelsea have another corner themselves but Moses heads it inches over.
    • 63' Wootton is booked for United as he slides through Sturridge.
    • 60' United are tearing Chelsea apart at the moment. Great move sees Giggs square towards the run of Anderson... placed shot from 20 yards blocked! Hernandez on the rebound! Over! Should have done better there.
    • 58' GOAL UNITED! What a finish by Nani, finding space in the box before lifting the finish over Cech. All past errors are forgiven. It's 2-3!
    • 56' Hazard on a quick run but Lindegaard does well to anticipate the cross.
    • 54' Prodigal forward Lucas Piazon is withdrawn by Chelsea with Eden Hazard on in his place. Di Matteo is going to go for it.
    • 52' GOAL CHELSEA! Their third corner of the game is headed in by Cahill! Rafael headed it away from goal but did so well over the line. With no Clattenberg or Pedro Mendes in sight, the goal is given. 2-2!
    • 49' Nani takes the ball from Welbeck's feet as the striker looked set to let rip inside the 'D'. Chelsea immediately counter and only Rafael's stellar slide prevents Sturridge a shot on target. United clear the ensuing corner. What was Nani thinking?
    • 46' Manchester United kick-off the second half.
    • - About to restart at the Bridge, and Chelsea have replaced Mikel at the interval with Ramires.
    • 45' Half-time at Stamford Bridge and Man United lead 2-1. Giggs preying on a horror-show goal kick from Cech before Luiz levelled from the spot. Hernandez two minutes before the break restored the edge for Fergie's troops.
    • 43' GOAL UNITED! It's that boy Hernandez against Chelsea yet again! Fantastic through pass by Giggs sets him free and he coolly slots under Cech inside the near post. 1-2!
    • 40' Good work by Giggs and Anderson goes to waste when Nani concedes a free-kick.
    • 34' Sturridge goes off-target from a tight angle before Moses again goes overly aggressive on Buttner trying to beat the left-back.
    • 31' GOAL! Luiz steps up to convert the penalty! Lindegaard guessed the right way but the kick was just precise enough to evade his reach. 1-1!
    • 30' PENALTY CHELSEA! Moses tripped inside the box by Buttner!
    • 28' Chelsea have been the better side for the most part but that goal kick howler has them behind. Mikel fouled Welbeck for the yellow, by the way.
    • 25' Mikel, starting despite Chelsea lodging a complaint today against Mark Clattenburg on his behalf, is booked.
    • 22' GOAL MAN UNITED! After Buttner had struck a free-kick wide of the far post from a similar position to Nani's attempt earlier, Cech's short goal kick backfires as Anderson mugs Romeu and Giggs slots home the opener. 0-1
    • 19' Moses again brings the ball into the United box but slips and handballs as he lands. He is quick to his feet and still in possession but Lee Mason has already blown up.
    • 15' Moses embarks on a good run into the box from the right but fouls a backtracking Welbeck and the move ends.
    • 14' Nani lashes a central free-kick straight into the arms of Cech from 25 yards.
    • 12' Romeu picks up the first booking of the match at the Bridge for tripping up Buttner.
    • 10' Buttner was guilty of giving the ball away as Chelsea broke leading to that Sturridge near-chance, but the game has since gone back to midfield.
    • 7' Chance goes to waste for Chelsea! Lovely early ball from the right on the counter by Moses which Sturridge should bury if he can bring it down. He cannot, however, as he stumbles after the first touch and the opportunity goes to waste.
    • 5' Manchester United fans have a banner which reads "Clattenburg. Referee. Leader. Legend." Oop.
    • 3' Giggs almost puts Hernandez clean through but Cahill intercepts. His defensive partner Luiz then strides up the pitch soon after and lashes a 25-yarder over the bar.
    • 1' Chelsea get the first half started at the Bridge.
    • 19:40 So yeah, there's a bit of backstory to Chelsea-United following their league clash at the weekend. Perhaps you've heard... Chelsea lodge formal complaint

Subs: Hilario, Ramires, Oscar, Hazard, Ferreira, Marin, Saville. /// Man Utd: Lindegaard, Da Silva, Wootton, Keane, Buttner, Anderson, Giggs, Fletcher, Nani, Hernandez, Welbeck.
