When Dan Gosling hit a 90th-minute equaliser against Chelsea in their Carabao Cup quarter-final clash at Stamford Bridge, it looked as though we were heading into extra-time.
However, with a tough trip away to Everton on Saturday evening, Chelsea didn’t really fancy another 30 minutes.
Straight from kick-off, Eden Hazard and Alvaro Morata combined beautifully with the Spaniard finishing past Artur Boruc.
Chelsea were into the last-four and could now concentrate on the Premier League clash against Everton at the weekend.
But they will have to travel to Goodison Park without hero Morata.
That’s because the striker picked up his fifth yellow card of the season after scoring the winner against Bournemouth. And the reason he was booked was pretty ridiculous.
According to the Evening Standard, he was booked for an “excessive celebration” after he put the ball under his shirt in reference to the news that his wife Alice Campello is expecting the couple’s first child.
Booked for putting a ball under your shirt ahead of the birth of your first child?
Football has gone mad.

CHELSEA FANS REACT
And Chelsea fans were fuming about Morata’s yellow card on Twitter. Check out the reaction:
Unsurprisingly, Antonio Conte isn’t too happy that he will be without Morata when they take on in-form Everton either.
“I didn’t see this yellow card. It’s a big loss for us, especially because we have to play a tough game against Everton. It’s a pity, but we have to accept it,” he said after the match.
When he does see it, he will no doubt be furious with referee Lee Mason.
