Chelsea have confirmed the date and time for both legs of the Capital One Cup semifinal. The Anfield leg will be played on Tuesday, January 20 at 19:45, while the Stamford Bridge leg will be played one week later, January 27, at 19:45 as well.

The matches fit fairly well into Chelsea's already crowded schedule. The first leg follows our away fixture against Swansea City, which is slated for 15:00 on Saturday, while the match following the home leg is our home tie against Manchester City. Sandwiched between the two semifinal legs is an FA Cup fourth round weekend, though Chelsea still need to defeat Watford before we know whether or not we'll have a match that particular weekend.

Liverpool have a trip to Aston Villa on the Saturday prior to the first leg, with a home match against West Ham scheduled for the Saturday following the match at Stamford Bridge.
