It was strange how a game that was a little lifeless should burst into life in the last minute and go on to become one we`ll talk about after what happened in stoppage time.

But, that`s the nature of football is it not, a game that never fails to surprise.

Following Chelsea`s victory and a place in the semi-finals of the competition, we stuck our head into the record books to come up with some fascinating facts for you to mull over:

? The win has given Chelsea a place in the EFL Cup semi-finals for the 13th time.

? On 4 of the last 5 occasions Chelsea have reached the semi-finals they`ve gone on to reach the final.

? The match wasn`t a thriller, in fact there were just 4 shots on target in the entire game ad the only 2 shots on target in the second half resulted in the two late goals.

? After arriving at Chelsea, Willian went 9 games in the EFL Cup without a goal, the Brazilian has now gone on to score in each of his last 2 appearances in the competition.

? Last night, in setting up Willian`s goal, Fabregas registered his 52nd assist for Chelsea, in all competitions, that`s a massive 20 more than any other Chelsea player has managed since Cesc joined the club back in the 2014 / 2015 season.
