Chelsea are through to the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup, and the Blues reached the semi-finals after a 2-0 win over Brentford.

The victory over Brentford cannot be spoken about without the efforts and brilliance of Kepa Arrizabalaga. The Spaniard has been the hero in the Cup games, and he continued his brilliance, and this time it wasn’t on the penalty spot, but in regular play.

Kepa made three good saves to keep Chelsea in the first half, and it was enough to keep the Blues in the game, as Chelsea totally dominated the second half.

Speaking after the game, Thomas Tuchel was particularly pleased with the performance of his keeper and Blues fans hailed the Spaniard as well for a fine performance, and some went as far as comparing him with the legendary Oliver Kahn and Guanluigi Buffon.
