London: Eden Hazard was bizarrely sent off for kicking a ball boy as European champions Chelsea fell to Swansea City in the second leg of their English League Cup semi-final on Wednesday.

Leading 2-0 from the first leg, Swansea held out for a goalless draw at the Liberty Stadium to reach the first major final in their history, which will see the Welsh club meet fourth-tier Bradford City at Wembley on February 24.

It was a bad day all round for the visitors, who had Belgian winger Hazard sent off for lashing out in frustration at a ball boy with 10 minutes of the game remaining.
