Chelsea made it late at Brentford with own goal and penalty kick by Jorginho.
First legs on the week commencing January 3, with the second legs the week after. Chelsea and Arsenal will be at home in the first legs.
It’s time for the draw! Jamie Redknapp and Michael Dawson are at their stations. Four big teams, two big ties coming up.
Was it more irresponsible behaviour from Tuchel? He had said he risked injuring Kanté by starting him when Chelsea were short of numbers against Wolves last Sunday and everything had pointed to him giving the midfielder a breather before the European champions attempt to revive their faltering Premier League challenge when they visit Aston Villa on Boxing Day.
Kanté, who has been badly missed since limping off against Juventus last month, had been on the pitch for only four minutes when Jansson inadvertently put Chelsea ahead.
Chelsea were more like themselves after Tuchel’s tweaks. Jorginho controlled midfield and the opening goal almost arrived when Saúl Ñíguez, making only his sixth start since joining on loan from Atlético Madrid, crossed from the left.
Álvaro Fernández, who would also save well from Barkley, had to react quickly to stop Henry scoring an own goal.
In truth, it was a deserved goal. Chelsea had called the shots after surviving a testing opening period and a semi-final against Tottenham was theirs once Jorginho had killed Brentford off with a late penalty.
In the end Brentford were left to rue a missed opportunity. Thomas Frank’s side were wasteful in the opening period and they were outclassed when Tuchel’s changes upped the ante in the second half.
“The first half, we should definitely have been in front,” Frank said.
“The second half, we struggled to create. But we gave nothing away until the 80th minute. Two mistakes gave them their goals.”
