Tuchel gives preview of Chelsea’s Cup game against Southampton

Chelsea needed penalties to qualify for the Carabao Cup for a second straight round as they edged out Southampton with a 4-3 shootout win at Stamford Bridge after a 1-1 draw.

Reece James provided the decisive kick again, just like he did against Aston Villa in the previous round, with Theo Walcott and Will Smallbone missing for the Saints.

Kai Havertz led Chelsea in the lead seconds before half-time, guiding a header into the bottom corner from a corner.

But Southampton would force the penalties when Che Adams kicked off the rebound after Kyle Walker-Peters’ effort was saved by Kepa Arrizabalaga’s legs.

Across London, Calum Chambers scored his first goal in more than two years before Eddie Nketiah punished his former club to send Arsenal to the quarter-finals with a 2-0 win over Leeds.

Chambers scored with his first touch of the night after coming off the bench to replace injured Benjamin White 10 minutes into the second half.

And the former Leeds lender secured the Gunners’ place in the quarter-finals by punishing a mistake by Liam Cooper, whose defensive header never had the power to reach Illan Meslier.

Instead, Nketiah jumped up, lifting the ball over the goalkeeper before watching his scuffed finish slip just inside the post as Leeds defenders rushed to return.

The result means Arsenal have now won six of their last eight games in all competitions and have been undefeated since August.

He also went on penalties at Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium, where League One Sunderland knocked out QPR with a 3-1 shootout victory after a goalless draw.

Charlie Austin believed he scored a late winner to send QPR into the last eight for the first time since 1988.

But a tight offside appeal went against the home side, and Austin’s misery continued when his shot on goal – the first in the shootout – was saved by Sunderland goaltender Lee Burge.

He was not the only culprit, however, with Ilias chairman and Yoann Barbet failing to find the target on the spot as QPR headed for League One opposition for the fourth year in a row.

Reaction from Ralph Hasenhuttl

It’s a shame that we lost on penalties. I think we had the best chances, we had some good heads but we were playing against a fantastic goalkeeper, Kepa made two good saves and then some decisive saves on the penalty shootout.

“It was an incredibly good game, of my team, I’m so proud. I see here when you come out of ‘London Pride’ I have to say the London Pride tonight was my team because what we did here was amazing.

“Playing with a team of players who haven’t played a lot this season, from the first minute they believed in what they did. It was intense, ups and downs all the time. We tried to be brave, but we didn’t get the reward.
