Capital One Cup: Leeds 1-5 Chelsea – Blues Batter Leeds At Rainy Elland Road (Photos & Highlights)

By Alan Duffy

Leeds United 1-5 Chelsea – Capital One Cup – 19th December 2012

Fresh from their Club World Cup defeat, Chelsea got back to winning ways at Elland Road on Wednesday night, coming from a goal down to eventually hammer Leeds 5-1, a result which keeps the Blues on course for League Cup success.

Luciano Becchio had put the home side a goal up just before half-time, finishing off a fine counter-attack to give the Elland Road faithful hope of pulling off a famous victory.

However, within two minutes of the second-half, Juan Mata had levelled the scores. That goal opened the floodgates for Rafa Benitez’s men, with Branislav Ivanovic, Victor Moses, Eden Hazard and finally Fernando Torres giving the Premier League side a convincing 5-1 victory.

Surely the trophy is Chelsea’s now?

    “Surely the trophy is Chelsea’s now?” be careful now, remember when we all thought that about arsenal 3ish seasons ago?

    “Surely the trophy is Chelsea’s now?” I’m with TravisKOP on this. Be Careful. We all thought this this weekend as Chelsea prepared to face Corinthians.

    In fact, a pal of mine actually thought Chelsea had won the Club World Cup and congratulated me on their “win”:
