Fulham pay the penalty

Published Add your comment

Chelsea's penalty-shootout curse ended in the most dramatic fashion as they beat Fulham to reach the Carling Cup fourth round.

Pajtim Kasami hit the crossbar with a second-half spot-kick and Bryan Ruiz did the same in the subsequent shootout, with replays inconclusive as to whether the ball crossed the line.

Chelsea's win improved their miserable record of seven penalty shootout defeats from their previous eight and gave manager Andre Villas-Boas another chance to blood his youngsters in the next round.
