Yesterday, Chelsea played Tottenham in the second leg of the EFL Cup final. Tottenham had won the first leg 1-0, so it was up to the Blues to turn things around.
Kanté netted the first goal for Chelsea in the 27th minute. Hazard then put the Blues 2-0 up by half time. Sarri’s team were smooth-sailing.
However, a goal from Tottenham’s Llorente in the 50th minute put the scoreline on aggregate to 2-2. Penalties had to decide which team would be progressing to the final round.
After Eric Dier and Lucas Moura both missed a penalty for Spurs, the Blues were sent through to the final, winning the penalty shoot-out 4-2!
The absence of Kane and Dele Alli already seems to be having an impact on the Spurs squad. Their only feasible chance at a trophy this football season now seems to be the FA Cup.
Chelsea will play Manchester City in the EFL Cup final on Sunday 24th February. Without a doubt, it is going to be a very difficult match.
