Chelsea boss, Jose Mourinho has said the Capital One Cup sem-final against Liverpool is another "live or die" game for them, adding that this time they are facing a "very good team, which was not the case today [January 24]", referencing his team's embarrassing defeat to Bradford City in the FA Cup.
After being left "embarrassed" by Bradford City, Jose Mourinho has demanded a response as his Chelsea side seek to reach the League Cup final against Liverpool on Tuesday.
Speaking in the aftermath of the shock defeat, manager Mourinho stated his players should feel "ashamed" to lose to a team from a lower league.
However, the Portuguese has no time to dwell on the setback as Chelsea host Liverpool in their semi-final second leg looking to book a spot in the Wembley showpiece, with the tie nicely poised at 1-1.
"I always said that I don't choose competitions [to prioritise] and we go match after match," he said.
"The most important competition now is the League Cup because it is the next game."
