Chelsea’s route to the League Cup final hasn’t been easy, as the Blues have had to overcome the likes of Liverpool and Tottenham in the process.
Chelsea are now through to the final of the competition after defeating Tottenham 4-2 on penalty, following a 2-2 aggregate draw over two legs.
Chelsea will now play Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final on February 24 and it promises to be a cracker at Wembley.
Chelsea have beaten Manchester City once this season – a 2-0 win for the Blues in a thrilling game at Stamford.
Speaking ahead of the City game, Eden Hazard has rated Chelsea’s chances of success and sees it as ’50-50′.
“It’s hard, it’s always hard, I think they [City] are the best team with Liverpool in the Premier League at the moment,” said Hazard.
“They win a lot of trophies in the last five, six years. ‘But we also have a great team so I think it’s a 50-50 game, so we’ll see.”
Sarri has been criticised for many years now for having not won a trophy, and the Italian has an opportunity when Chelsea and City face each other at Wembley next month.
The Chelsea manager said.” If you say that I have never won anything at this level you are right, but I started in a professional team and now I’m in Chelsea, so in another way I won.
“The most important game will be the next one at Bournemouth (next Wednesday). I’m happy because I will go to play a final at Wembley which is important for me, my players and the club, but now we must think about the next match in the FA Cup, and then the most dangerous one will be Bournemouth.”
Chelsea’s next game is an FA Cup fourth round clash against Sheffield Wednesday on Sunday at Stamford Bridge. Sarri who hasn’t won any trophy before will be hoping for another good run in this competition and hopefully land a trophy.
