Defender Ben Chilwell returned from injury and performed exceptionally well, while Sterling showcased his creativity and caused problems for Middlesbrough.

Chelsea dominated the Carabao Cup semi-final match, defeating Championship side Middlesbrough 6-1.

The first goal came in an untidy manner, with Raheem Sterling’s pass being inadvertently redirected into the net by Jonny Howson.

Enzo Fernandez then scored a second goal before the 30-minute mark, capitalizing on a cross from Axel Disasi. Disasi himself scored the third goal, receiving a clever pass from Sterling and calmly finishing. Palmer added a fourth goal just before halftime, taking advantage of poor defending.

In the game, Palmer scored a fifth goal by receiving a clever cut-back from Gallagher. Then, as a substitute, Madueke scored the sixth goal by skillfully maneuvering into the Middlesbrough box.

In the 87th minute, the visitors managed to score a consolation goal when Rogers curled a fantastic shot into the bottom corner from a distance.
