Chelsea have taken a first-half lead against Blackburn during Wednesday night’s Carabao Cup Fourth Round tie at Stamford Bridge.
Eager to secure his team’s place in the competition’s quarter-finals, Mauricio Pochettino would have been demanding to see an improved performance against tonight’s Championship-level opposition.
And after opening the scoring after just 30 minutes thanks to a calmy placed volley by defender Benoit Badiashile, the Blues have taken a huge step toward progressing beyond tonight’s round.
