Leicester City vs. Chelsea, EFL Cup: Extra-time and possibly penalty kicks

Michael Regan/Getty Images


Chelsea played a much better second half than a first and got the proper reward through a world-class equalizing goal.  We probably should've won it by now, but several gilt-edged chances have been missed.  Costa and Hazard are on, the former getting Wasilewki sent off but not yet able to find the back of the net.  Nathaniel Chalobah is on as well for his Chelsea debut as Conte has switched back to the 4141/433 formation from the 442/424 that we saw at the start.

So, two 15-minute extra halves, plus a penalty kick shootout if scores are still level.  Leicester are down to 10 and Chelsea are in the ascendancy.  But the hosts' counter-attack is always dangerous, and they do have Vardy on with fresh legs.

Anyone's game at the moment, really, especially the way this game has gone with ridiculous goals, ridiculous calls, and a few ridiculous plays.
