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.
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.
