Chelsea defeats Blackburn 2-0, led by Raheem Sterling and Benoit Badiashile, to advance to the quarterfinals.

After Chelsea defeated Blackburn Rovers to go to the Carabao Cup quarterfinals, manager Mauricio Pochettino is certain his team can win the trophy. 

They triumphed at home for the first time since defeating Brighton in the third round of the playoffs in late September thanks to goals from Benoit Badiashile and Raheem Sterling.

Manager Pochettino stated, “We need to consider it an important competition for us.”

“This is not Europe. That ought to present us with a chance similar to the Premier League and the FA Cup, which we will begin in January. Of course, we have to believe that we can prevail in this match.”

Halfway through the half, Conor Gallagher’s ball from a short corner was palmed by Rovers goalie Leopold Wahlstedt straight to French center-back Badiashile, who was starting for Chelsea for the first time since May.
