The Chelsea slump takes another turn for the worse as they fail to defend their league cup trophy.

Their defeat means that they have now lost eight out of their last six matches.

After Chelsea dominated a goalless first-half, Stoke led when Jon Walters was allowed to turn on the edge of the box before firing in off the crossbar.

Loic Remy drilled in an injury-time equaliser, seconds before Stoke’s Phil Bardsley was sent off for two bookings.

Stoke scored all of their spot-kicks, Eden Hazard missing the final penalty.

Potters keeper Jack Butland was the hero for the home side, saving the Belgian’s high effort to put Stoke into the quarter-finals.

Despite the Premier League champions’ dreadful start to the season, any suggestions of disharmony in the Blues ranks looked wide of the mark at Britannia Stadium.

The visitors showed no signs of their recent troubles in the first half, passing the ball around confidently and stretching the Stoke back line with their sharp movement.

England international Butland thwarted the visitors with a trio of top-class saves in the opening half-hour, twice denying Diego Costa and then Oscar, while Chelsea skipper John Terry’s cheeky flick from Willian’s cross was ruled out for offside.

And the character showed to level deep in stoppage-time suggested that the players were prepared to fight for Mourinho.

Nonetheless, it doesn’t get any better for Chelsea with Liverpool their opponents this weekend. Will the Blues bounce back?
