Chelsea progressed to the fourth round of the Carabao Cup after beating Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night via penalties.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has revealed what he told Chelsea stars Thiago Silva and Romelu Lukaku before the game against Aston Villa.

Tuchel said: “Thiago and Romelu we had for both cases. We said to Thiago maybe we need you for the last 15 if it was necessary to defend and have someone with experience and calm.

“With Romelu we said if we need you 10-15 minutes from the end if we need a goal and this is why they were with us.”
