Chelsea 2-1 Bournemouth player ratings, stats and reaction: Morata seals last-gasp win as Blues advance to semi-finals

Chelsea had Alvaro Morata to thank tonight, as the forward scored a last minute winner to see his side beat Bournemouth 2-1 at Stamford Bridge and put them into the semi-finals of the League Cup.

Chelsea opened the scoring in the 13th minute, after a wonderful move ended up with Cesc Fabregas squaring the ball to Willian, who tapped home to gives the Blues the lead.

The Cherries equalised in the 90th minute, after Gosling placed the ball past Willy Caballero from the edge of the box to level the tie.

The home side then won the game just a few seconds later, as a ball from Eden Hazard found Morata, who poked the ball home to put his side into the hat for the semi-final draw.

Player of the Match

Chelsea midfielder Ethan Ampadu was exceptional for Antonio Conte’s side this evening, with the youngster controlling the game with ease for the Blues.

Despite his young age, Ampadu showed that he is well up the task of first team football with his calmness on the ball and passing range against Eddie Howe’s side tonight.
