Juan Mata Scores For Chelsea to Beat Arsenal and Reach Capital One Cup Quarter-Final [GIF]
Chelsea won the bragging rights in London tonight with a comfortable 2-0 victory against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium in the fourth round of the Capital One Cup.
Cesar Azpilicueta opened the scoring for Chelsea in the 25th minute when he capitalized on a defensive blunder by Arsenal’s Carl Jenkinson who was unable to clear the ball to safety.
In the second half, Juan Mata put the game out of Arsenal’s reach with a perfectly hit shot that sailed into the far corner of the net.
