Chelsea celebrate

There were goals aplenty as Chelsea came from behind to thrash Leeds at Elland Road on Wednesday.

The 5-1 win puts Rafael Benitez's side through to the Capital One Cup semi-finals.

The European champions looked in big trouble as Championship side Leeds scored first in front of 35,000 passionate supporters.

Late in the first half, Luciano Becchio gave the home team a lead and hope of a famous win.

But Juan Mata fired an equaliser just after the break and Branislav Ivanovic headed the Blues into the lead.

Victor Moses found the bottom corner before substitute Eden Hazard slotted home. Fernando Torres tapped in a fifth to seal Chelsea's place in the League Cup last four.

Interim manager, Rafael Benitez was very pleased: "I thought the performance was fantastic," he said.

"You can see that in every game the team is a little bit stronger."
