Alright, here’s how the Chelsea vs Middlesbrough EFL Cup showdown went down. Stamford Bridge was buzzing, and boy, did Chelsea deliver a spectacle!
Kickoff and in no time, Chelsea’s up by one, thanks to a stroke of misfortune for Jonathan Howson – an own goal. Talk about being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Fast forward a bit, and Enzo Fernández doubles the lead, followed by Axel Disasi making it three. The crowd’s going wild!
Before you know it, Cole Palmer sneaks in a fourth. Middlesbrough’s barely catching their breath when Thiago Silva and Rav van den Berg get cautioned, adding some spice to the match. Palmer’s on fire, bagging another, and Noni Madueke decides to join the party, making it a six-goal fiesta.
Middlesbrough’s Morgan Rogers manages to pull one back, giving the visiting fans something to cheer about, but it’s pretty clear Chelsea’s got this in the bag. They’re off to the finals, and Stamford Bridge is in a frenzy. What a game!
