Posted by

Chelsea advanced to the Carabao Cup last 16 at the expense of Aston Villa after Reece James scored the decisive penalty in a shootout.

The full-back converted the Blues’ final penalty to seal a 4-3 victory in the shootout.

In normal time, a goal from youthful Villa attacker Cameron Archer clinched a draw, leveling the score after Timo Werner had placed the Blues ahead.

In the final 16 of a competition they last won in 2014-15, Chelsea will face Southampton.
