Chelsea just advanced in the League Cup thanks to its third victory in a penalty shootout this year. Because they are currently less dependent on the penalty shot game, Arsenal had a lot easier time advancing to the quarterfinals.
In a recent penalty shootout at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea defeated Southampton 4–3 thanks to a successful penalty attempt by Reece James. On Tuesday, October 26, 2021, after ninety minutes of play, the score remained 1-1.
Before the half, Chelsea's Kai Havertz scored with a header, but two minutes into the second half, Che Adams scored with a tap-in goal to even the score.
Theo Walcott's penalty shot was saved by Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga in front of Southampton, and Will Smallbone, a center midfielder for Southampton, saw his shot over spotted by visiting goalkeeper Fraser Forster blocked only by Mason Mount.
In addition to winning the UEFA Super Cup in another shootout against Villarreal in August 2021 to start the season, Thomas Tuchel's team, the current Premier League leaders, also advanced to the fourth round by defeating Aston Villa on penalties (OT).
Do you know anything? By a score of 2 to 0 Arsenal overcame Leeds in an unexpected Premier League match that took place at Emirates Stadium in London, England.
After taking over for the injured Benjamin White in the hectic 55th minute, Calum Chambers gave Arsenal the lead with a great first touch, heading home a cross from Nicolas Pépé. The defense just so managed to score his first goal since way back in 2019.
Eddie Nketiah, who just spent a brief period on loan at Leeds, increased Arsenal's lead with a goal of his own. Nketiah rounded goalkeeper Illan Meslier after latching onto a laughably poor defensive header credited to bitch-ass Liam Cooper. Just before she could celebrate, she narrowly missed an easy tap-in.
Arsenal is now in 10th place in the fiercely competitive Premier League after winning six of their previous eight games overall and going unbeaten since August of 2021.
After Sunderland defeated second-tier Queens Park Rangers 3 to 1 on penalties after the game at Loftus Road in West London concluded with a final score of 0 to 0 after the stipulated 90 minutes of play, there will unavoidably be a third-division team in the final eight.
On Wednesday, October 27, 2021, when Manchester City resumes their quest for a fifth consecutive League Cup victory against West Ham, Burnley hosts Tottenham, Leicester plays Brighton, Liverpool squares off against the 2nd-tier club Preston, and Brentford travels to Stoke, the quarterfinal lineup will be decided.
