Manchester United knocked Chelsea out of the Carabao Cup with a 2-1 win on the back of a Marcus Rashford double at Stamford Bridge to advance to the quarterfinals of the annual competition.

Frank Lampard handed another start to Christian Pulisic after the U.S. international scored a hat trick in Chelsea's win over Burnley on Saturday, but it was fellow youngster Rashford that stole the show with the only goal of the first half from the penalty spot after Marcos Alonso clumsily bundled Daniel James over in the box.

Chelsea looked more dangerous in the second half and got back on level terms at the hour mark when Michy Batshuayi finished off a hard-charging run from midfield with a thunderous, low line drive from 20 yards out to make it 1-1.

The visitors retook the lead 73rd minute from a wicked Rashford free kick that swerved over the wall and dipped into the back of Willy Caballero's leaving United on the brink of passage to the quarterfinals.

United saw out the result to seal a spot in the last eight and will learn their opponent when the quarterfinal draw takes place on Thursday. Manchester City, Liverpool, Aston Villa, Leicester City, Everton, Colchester United and Oxford will join Man United in the draw.

Next up for Chelsea is an away match against Watford in the Premier League on Nov. 2, while Man United visit Bournemouth on the same day.

It's not three straight away wins in all competitions for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team after having gone winless in their previous 11 road games
