Rodgers looking forward to 'fantastic tie' as Liverpool draw Chelsea in League Cup semi finals

Liverpool go up against Chelsea in the pick of the Capital One Cup semi-finals.

The Reds won 3-1 at Bournemouth to reach the last four, while Chelsea put out a strong side to win by the same margin at Derby on Tuesday.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho won his first trophy in England by beating Liverpool to the League Cup in 2005, and his side will be away in the first leg.

"It will be a fantastic tie," Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers told Sky Sports.

"If you want to win this competition you have to play against the good sides.

"The most important thing was getting through, but our performance was brilliant.

"We're into the semi-final, it's over two legs and it didn't matter who we got. We needed to get there, it's Chelsea and we look forward to it."

In the other semi final, Sheffield United take on Tottenham.

The ties are set to be played on January 20 and 21 and January 27 and 28.
