Chelsea sensationally avenged their bitter Barclays Premier League defeat to Manchester United as they won an nine-goal Capital One Cup thriller 5-4 at Stamford Bridge.

United looked set to pile on the misery for the European champions with a 3-2 fourth-round victory three days after ending their 10-year wait for a league win in west London, in the most controversial manner imaginable.

But Eden Hazard scored a penalty with the last kick of normal time before Daniel Sturridge and Ramires completed an amazing comeback just 24 hours after Arsenal's astonishing 7-5 win at Reading.
