Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers believes Reds can reach Capital One Cup final

After Liverpool dominated Chelsea in the Capital One Cup semi-final first leg, manager Brendan Rodgers believes his side can make the final, reports BBC Sport.

“I felt the performance here was a good benchmark of how we are working right now. This has reinforced my feeling that we can go to Stamford Bridge to give the performance to get the result we need,” he said.

Liverpool drew the first leg 1-1 against Chelsea, but produced a scintillating display against the Blues at Anfield. And as their away form has been much-improved in recent weeks, Rodgers fancies his chances of stunning the hosts at Stamford Bridge.

“Chelsea should open up in the second leg, and that will help us because of the pace and invention we have in the team. They have a good record at home, but we haven’t conceded in our last three away games,” the Reds boss added.
