Latest: Sunderland 0 Chelsea 0 – slick start by the Blues in quarter-final clash

Chelsea dominated possession in the opening 20 minutes of the Capital One Cup quarter-final at the Stadium of Light, where the in-form Andre Schurrle has looked lively.

The Blues’ veteran keeper Mark Schwarzer, in for Petr Cech, was a virtual spectator as Jose Mourinho’s side passed the ball around at will and pressed their opponents effectively.

Schurrle cut in from the left and fired straight at Black Cats keeper Vito Mannone and Chelsea skipper Frank Lampard sent a long-range effort over.

Kevin De Bruyne was one of those brought in to a much-changed Chelsea starting line-up by Mourinho.

Chelsea (4-2-3-1): Schwarzer; Azpilicueta, Cahill, Luiz, Cole; Mikel, Lampard; De Bruyne, Willian, Schurrle; Eto’o
Subs: Blackman, Terry, Essien, Oscar, Hazard, Ba, Torres.
