    • 26' Larsson overhits the angled free-kick into the box and the ball rolls out of play.

    • 16' Eto'o wins the ball and Schurrle gets the ball down the right channel but the German drags his shot wide.

    • 13' Azpilicueta heads clear a ball into the area from Giaccherini.
    • 12' More midfield play from Chelsea, but Willian then loses the ball to Lee Cattermole 30 yards from goal.
    • 11' De Bruyne brings down Giaccherini - a typical forward's tackle and referee Anthony Taylor does not bring out the yellow card.
    • 10' Brown clears a poor cross from the right from Azpilicueta - then the ball ends up with Lampard, whose shot is well over the bar.
    • 9' Sunderland have a spell of possession as Brown brings the ball out of defence.
    • 8' Emanuele Giaccherini gets into the box but Cahill manages to block the shot.

    • 6' William beats Andrea Dossena but the shot is weak and saved by Mannone.
    • 5' Gary Cahill concedes a throw under pressure from Altidore. But Chelsea break through Willian.
    • 4' Willian finds Schurrle, who cuts inside Adam Johnson but the German's shot is straight at Sunderland goalkeeper Vito Mannone.
    • 3' O'Shea outleaps Eto'o to head clear an angled cross into the area.
    • 2' Chelsea are playing some nice possession football in the early stages, until Wes Brown nicks the ball off Eto'o. But the Blues win it back again.
    • 1' Sunderland in their red and white stripes kick off from right to left.
    • 19:44 A very friendly punch from Mourinho to Poyet as the managers shake hands.
    • 19:43 STAT ALERT: Jose Mourinho has never lost a League Cup tie in normal time - he has won the cup twice with Chelsea.
    • 19:35 Steven Fletcher and Jack Colback miss the match through illness.
    • 19:30 Sunderland have beaten MK Dons, Peterborough United and Southampton on the way to the quarter-final, while Chelsea have defeated Swindon Town and Arsenal.
    • 19:25 This will be first time the two clubs have met in the League Cup since 1985.
    • 19:20 Eden Hazard was the inspiration in the last meeting between the sides, netting two goals in the 4-3 Premier League win at the Stadium of Light.
    • 19:15 Sunderland have failed to beat Chelsea in their last six attempts in all competitions - and the Black Cats have had fewer shots on target than any other team in the top flight this season (37).
    • 19:10 Chelsea are odds-on favourites to win at the Stadium of Light, but manager Jose Mourinho is determined not to to take the Black Cats for granted: “We already won there a month ago and it was not easy. Despite their position in the Premiership table, Sunderland is a team with players that can change a game such as (Jozy) Altidore or (Adam) Johnson. Winning there for the second time is going to be tough again.”
    • 19:05 Sunderland manager Gus Poyet believes that a good cup run can have a positive effect on the club's Premier League campaign: "If we want to get out of the relegation zone, we need to become winners, winning football games, and to become winners, we need to win the next one, so let's see if we can use it for that reason. It's important. It's a cup competition."
    • 19:00 Andrea Dossena, Craig Gardner and Adam Johnson return in place of Phil Bardsley, Ki Sung-Yueng and Fabio Borini, as the Black Cats make three changes from the team that drew with West Ham United at the weekend. Chelsea make eight changes from the team that beat Crystal Palace on Saturday with Mark Schwarzer, Gary Cahill, Ashley Cole, John-Obi Mikel, Frank Lampard, Kevin De Bruyne, Andre Schurrle and Samuel Eto'o all starting.

  1. Oh what a glorious score, not being a big fan of­ Sunderland myself, much prefer Newcastle (blame the­ husband), but I have to say, it was great to see the­ score - the special one isn't so special now -­ bless his little cotton socks, perhaps the new­ hairstyle has reduced his powers - rather like Samson­ and Delia ?

    From C Sarah, on Wed 18 Dec 16:12
  2. one minute he is telling us Chelsea can't win the prem,­ then they win the next game, then he tell's us winning­ the league cup will be the spring board they need to­ push on, and they lose to sunderland.special one my­ #$%$!!!

    From Mark, on Wed 18 Dec 15:50
  3. I did not see the match but I just noiced that Chelsea­ goal was a Sunderland (o.g.) Amazing Chelsea has the­ best strikers of the Premiership if not the Whole best­ Team and they did even manage to score a goal.against­ the last team. This is a miracle that only the Special­ One can do.... Do not worry Chelsea Fans You are going­ to beat Arsenal Saturday. You see every match has his­ own story . It happens all the time You lose against a­ weak Team and then next time You win against the­ strongest one. You must have faith in the he Special­ One He does very interesting misteriuos miracles all­ the time...

    From riff, on Wed 18 Dec 9:23
  4. I bet anyone any money that Sunderland will win the­ League cup, and do a Birmingham/Wigan. That being reach­ the finals of the League cup, win it like Birmingham­ beat Arsenal in the League cup final two years back,­ and Wigan beat Manchester City in the FA cup final just­ last season, and still get relegated to the­ Championship. I betcha any money that will happen­ this season. Sunderland will reach the finals, win the­ cup, and still get relegated to the Championship.

    From Reiss Jordan, on Wed 18 Dec 5:01
  5. Comment 99 what about Inter Milan. The first and only­ italian team to win the treble.No matter what that will­ always be in the history books.The ones slagging him­ off are the same type of fans in Manchester who want­ rid of Moyes!!!! You probably think Guardialio is doing­ a great job at Munich.!!!! A great team already­ he's just taken it over.

    From PAUL L, on Wed 18 Dec 2:26
  6. I know Chelski. You never wanted to win the League Cup­ anyway, did you?

    From Dr I P Freely, on Wed 18 Dec 1:18
  7. from a HAMMERS supporter im so glad chelski lost to­ bottom club sunderland,, jose marinio how special are­ you now,,, dident chelski sack you once anyways, now­ they got you back and you think your sooooo special,,­ yeah my backside you are,,, well i said this after the­ spurs game getting sacked in the morning lol well done­ sunderland

    From Steve, on Wed 18 Dec 0:39
  8. not having seen the game, but following the text­ summary there are surprisingly disappointing­ substitutions. Schurrle seemed to be Chelsea's best­ outlet so why sub him? When Hazard came on he did­ nothing. Essien also seems to be a shadow of his former­ self. Chelsea seem to be only strong in midfield, so­ unless form changes I can see a clear out in January

    From Mark A, on Wed 18 Dec 0:08
  9. Well done indeed, you Cats. You got among the Happy­ 1's pigeons and gave them a deserved roasting.

    From laager2, on Tue 17 Dec 23:58
  10. When Lampard is on the pitch, Chelsea always play­ poorly. Does JM not understand that simple equation?

    From Red Sox Fan, on Tue 17 Dec 23:31
  11. Fabio Borini just wanted to know can we play you every­ week ?. lol

    From a, on Tue 17 Dec 22:55
  12. Was AVB acting manager tonight for Chelsea? it­ certainly looked like his style! Oops I forgot, it was­ Jose that taught him. silly me.

    From Martin, on Tue 17 Dec 22:52
  13. Mourhino is no special one - and that's coming from­ a Chelsea supporter of 25 years . A Alex Ferguson he­ aint . The man is poisonous , and hes no longer up to­ the job . Go and do a Villas Boas Mourinho, , Bring­ back Benitez ., he was on the verge of great success .­ Mourinhos bullying of Mata is complete madness . Well­ done Sunderland , you deserved to win . As for Arsenal­ Fans they got nothing to worry about . Chelsea will not­ even be runners up at the end of the season . Mourhino­ should be sacked - even poor old Moyes could do a­ better job .

    From Fletcher, on Tue 17 Dec 22:41
  14. Good lesson there for Mourinho, Chelsea has to loose­ such matches for Mourinho to realise his folly in­ playing politics with the Mata situation.

    From Frederick, on Tue 17 Dec 22:37
  15. i just want ask football fan who did good job mourinho?­ or banitaz ? well done banitaz congratulation you did­ good job.

    From Mirela, on Tue 17 Dec 22:35
  16. No excuses, Chelsea were terrible! Ba looks like a­ Championship striker, he has no balance, can't­ hold up play and makes Bendtner look good. Debruyne­ can't shoot, Essien is too slow nowadays and Cole­ looks half the player he used to be. Sunderland were­ efficient, concentrated and passed well. I know­ Mourinho will be more worried about the Arsenal game­ and so he should, but he can't play Essien, Ba or­ Mikel. They are too slow. I think a midfielder is­ needed even more than a striker but one thing is for­ certain, Chelsea are more like a crab going sideways­ and the last pass id always the worst. This isn't­ good enough and Jose knows it. He needs to work some­ magic or pray hard.

    From charles, on Tue 17 Dec 22:34
  17. As Chelsea fan, it is time that Mourinho tries to think­ again with his style. If during his first spell­ he's tried to encourage players now he's­ bringing the opposite. The fact not to play Mata who­ was Chelsea top player during 2 seasons without­ reasonable reasons, Mourinho won't be succeed and I­ amn't hoping Chelsea can win a trophy this year.

    From Charles, on Tue 17 Dec 22:33
  18. is that the special one?how can he see is goingto beat­ arsenal,big mistake Chelsea should keep benitaz is much­ better.

    From Hichem, on Tue 17 Dec 22:33
  19. A pretty average game by two uninteresting teams. The­ first half was not too bad but, the 2nd half just got­ worse. Chelsea had no idea what to do when they got­ into the Sunderland penalty area (their goal aside) and­ Sunderland gave the ball away so many times you would­ think it had a virus. Extra time was not much to talk­ about until the defensive mistake which led to a rare­ Sunderland goal. One match best forgotten in a hurry. ­ But have to say, congrats to the Cats.

    From Gallowgate, on Tue 17 Dec 22:32
  20. Congratulations to Sunderland. Good and deserved win.­ Once again, our players failed to take their chances. I­ hope people don't blame Mourinho for not playing­ Mata because this was a full squad for us. Our players­ just didn't capitalized on their chances. Kevin­ Debryne always complaining of not having game time,­ well, today was a chance for him to prove himself, but­ he didn't. I don't think we should blame­ Mourinho for today's lost because our players, in­ particular, Eto'o had the chance of putting the­ game to the bed , but he failed. So,people should not­ blame Mourinho, and well done to Sunderland.
