Tottenham will not be lifting the Carabao Cup after losing out to Chelsea in the semi-final. Spurs held a 1-0 lead after the first leg, but the Blues came out on fire in the first 45.
N’Golo Kante scored from outside the box in the 27th minute before Eden Hazard made it 2-0 in the 38th minute.
Chelsea were dominant in the first half, but Spurs came roaring back with Fernando Llorente scoring in the 50th minute.
Both sides had chances to get another goal, but it was not to be. The teams headed for the penalty shootout after the 90, and it was Tottenham that had to bow out.
Eric Dier blasted his penalty over the bar while Lucas Moura saw his effort saved by Kepa Arrizabalaga. David Luiz scored from the spot to send Chelsea through to the final where they face Manchester City.
Tottenham were already facing injury problems before the game, and Ben Davies had to be replaced in the first 45 with Danny Rose coming on.
The team didn’t play great until the second half, and Chelsea could have scored a few more if their finishing was a little better.
Many Tottenham fans weren’t pleased with the result, and here are some of their reactions to this loss against a London rival.
I expect nothing and I’m still disappointed…

You can make all the excuses you want but the fact is the fault lies with the board. They have refused to strengthen a team decimated by injuries and missing 3 key players, to even take Chelsea to penalties was a decent achievement but Levy & ENIC need to go. #LevyOut
