Republic of Ireland under-21 international Will Smallbone missed a vital penalty to allow Chelsea progress to the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup.

They beat Southampton 4-3 in last night's shootout - having knocked out Aston Villa on spot-kicks in the previous round.

It adds to an already hectic fixture list for the European champions.


But boss Thomas Tuchel tells Sky Sports News, he wouldn't have it any other way.

Arteta says they delivered exactly what he wanted.
