Ryan Giggs, Manchester United

Chelsea 5-4 Manchester United

Chelsea and Manchester United played out an exciting second round Capital One Cup at Stamford Bridge today, as Chelsea got revenge for their Premier League defeat over the weekend by winning 5-4 to earn their spot in the quarter-finals of the Capital One Cup.

Roberto Di Matteo's Chelsea squad included Cesar Azpilicueta, Oriol Romeu, Victor Moses, Lucas Piazon and Daniel Sturridge along with David Luiz and Juan Mata.

Sir Alex Ferguson made 10 changes to Man United's team, with Rafael the only man to retain his place from Sunday's win.

After the chaos of the weekend, it was perhaps little surprise that the first half was a frenetic affair, played at great pace, with goals, bookings, a penalty and the visitors once again heading into the break 2-1 ahead.

Ryan Giggs scored the opening goal.

Victor Moses was fouled giving David Luiz a free kick and goal - sending the ball past United goalie Anders Lindegaard.

Just minutes before the break. Anderson passed to Chicharito, who finished past Cech for his sixth goal in nine appearances against Chelsea.

The second half began with a goal from Gary Cahill.

Then Nani finished over Cech to put United ahead for the third time 3-2.

Near full-time another penalty allowed Hazard to score a spot-kick to send the game into extra time.

The Blues took the lead for the first time in the game in the seventh minutes of extra-time when Sturridge beat Lindegaard to score.

Ramires tapped home the fifth.

With seconds remaining, Ryan Giggs grabbed his second of the night from the penalty spot after Azpilicueta fouled Chicharito.
