Carabao Cup: Chelsea ease into the finals after another leg win over Tottenham

Chelsea ease into the finals after another leg win over Tottenham.

Chelsea eased into the finals after another leg win over Tottenham on Wednesday night.

Chelsea had a two-goal first-leg advantage, and Spurs never really challenged to overcome it, as Antonio Rudiger’s scrambled finish from Mason Mount’s corner after 18 minutes practically confirmed a date with either Arsenal or Liverpool.

Rudiger’s scrambled finish to give Chelsea the lead

Spurs and their former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte had a frustrating night as VAR properly overturned two penalties that referee Andre Marriner had awarded for fouls on Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Lucas Moura.

In the second half, Tottenham’s Harry Kane had a goal disallowed for offside, but Chelsea were always in charge and were able to keep the game under control even when they weren’t at their best.

After a medical emergency in the crowd forced a late halt to the game, Chelsea went on to complete the formalities of their victory.
