Chelsea win their first trophy of the season as they comprehensively beat Spurs 2-0.
League Two Shrewsbury gave Chelsea a run for their money in the League Cup but eventually succumbed 2-1 to the Premier League leaders.
After a goalless first half, Didier Drogba proved he’s still got it with a goal to add to the one he scored against Manchester United on Sunday.
However, Shrewsbury fought back and equalised, but a late own goal saved Chelsea from extra-time and a potential giant-killing to win 2-1.
Mario Balotelli may have just kickstarted his season after inspiring Liverpool to come back to beat Swansea.
Swansea, who beat Liverpool 3-1 two years ago in the competition before going on to win it, lead from Marvin Emnes’ second-half goal.
However, when Balotelli came on late in the game, the Italian turned the game around with an equaliser before Dejan Lovren’s late header gave Liverpool a 2-1 lead.
In other games, Bournemouth followed up on their amazing 8-0 win over Birmingham in the Championship with a 2-1 win over Premier League West Brom. Derby also came back from 2-0 against Fulham to win 5-2.

- Fulham 2-5 Derby
