Harry Kane (L) and Dele Alli celebrate against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg

Tottenham carry a slender lead into the second leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final thanks to Harry Kane’s penalty in the first leg.

Kepa Arrizabalaga fouled Kane in the box, but the main talking point was the use of VAR as Chelsea believed the Englishman was offside as he was played clean through.

Referee Michael Oliver deliberated with the VAR officials and Kane made no mistake from the spot. The Blues had their chances to score with the frame of the goal coming to our rescue a couple of times. Kepa also made a great save to keep the score 1-0, and although we were not at our best, the win will give us a huge boost going into the second leg.

Tottenham next prepare for a huge clash against Manchester United at the weekend, and here are the player ratings from the tie.

Paulo Gazzaniga – 7.5/10

The goalkeeper made some easy saves in the first half, and did really well to keep Callum Hudson-Odoi’s cross out.

Kieran Trippier – 7/10

Trippier didn’t have much of a say in our attack as we were pegged back by Chelsea, however, the Englishman defended well throughout the game.

Davinson Sanchez – 7/10

The Colombian did a pretty good job of dealing with Eden Hazard, but picked up a yellow card for his troubles.

Toby Alderweireld – 8/10

Toby was brilliant at the back, and it was his pass that led to the penalty. The Belgian proved why he is one of the best in the world with this performance.

Danny Rose – 6.5/10

The Englishman did a decent job at the back, but had limited output in the attacking third.

Harry Winks – 6/10

Winks had a mixed game for Spurs as his passing wasn’t always spot on, but he kept the team ticking along.

Moussa Sissoko – 7/10

The Frenchman was his usual self in the midfield as he made a few powerful runs, however, the end product was lacking.

Dele Alli – 7/10

There wasn’t much for the Englishman in the final third but he did a great job of tracking back and dealing with the Chelsea players.

Christian Eriksen – 6/10

Eriksen was another player that didn’t have a great game though he had some nice touches.

Son Heung-min – 6.5/10

The South Korean started the game well as he caused Chelsea’s defence problems but he fizzled out as the match went on.

Harry Kane – 7.5/10

Kane did what he does best but he also had a couple of shots, an acrobatic one too, which were saved easily by the Chelsea keeper.

Substitutes

Erik Lamela – 5/10

Had a chance to score late in the game but could not bury his chance.

Oliver Skipp – NA

Was a late sub in the game.
