Chelsea Capital One Cup League Cup Fourth Round Update
Titan club FC Chelsea crashed out of the League Cup in the Round of 16 after a penalty shoot-out, putting the team’s legendary manager Jose Mourinho’s job at risk depending on the result of The Blues’ critical upcoming Premiership fixture against FC Liverpool this weekend.
Capital One Cup holders were knocked out of the tournament after a goalless first-half and hard-fought second half with the opening goal by Stokes Jon Walters and an equalizer by Chelsea’s Loic Remy.
In the Penalty shootout, Stoke scored all of their spot-kicks before Eden Hazard missed the final penalty due to a dramatic save by Potters’ goalie Jack Butland costing Chelsea a chance to retain their crown.
Blues boss Mourinho, who is perhaps the best football manager of his generation, has been accused of abusing referee Jon Moss at half-time during Chelsea's recent 2-1 loss to West Ham United. There is an FA investigation regarding Mourinho’s indiscretion in process after the Chosen One reportedly refused to leave the match official's room.
The Chelsea boss may be on the Blues bench for their upcoming battle against Liverpool if he receives a stadium ban after his unpredictable run-in.
Chelsea have won only 3 of their last 10 Premiership clashes resulting in a beleaguered Mourinho showing signs of stress, understandably. Rumors are flying about Mourinho’s future with the possibility of a dramatic exit for the Premier League champions’ popular manager.
Reportedly, Carlo Ancelotti may be on the bench awaiting an emotional return to Chelsea if club owner billionaire Roman Abramovich considers his option to fire the charismatic Portuguese boss a solution in order to turn the season around and rescue his side from further defeat, strain, embarrassment, and relegation.
A win against superclub Liverpool may be all Chelsea needs for Mourinho’s talented, hard-working, and experienced side to turn the corner and regain their confidence however.
From his point of view, Mourinho considers his situation fantastic even knowing a loss to Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool could be his final match as boss of Chelsea, and the end of his second tenure at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea seemed lackluster before their Community Shield loss, and have continued to spiral down the England Premiership table in a tailspin of defeats since then.
