“Ain’t a serious club ”- Some fans react as Tottenham Hotspur get beat 2-0 by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge

Some fans react on Twitter as Tottenham Hotspur lose 2-0 to Chelsea in the Carabao Cup

An awful performance came to an end at Stamford Bridge as Tottenham Hotspur lost 2-0 to Chelsea in the first leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final.

Antonio Conte made few changes to his starting XI that won against Watford on Saturday. The entire team had a day more to prepare for the game than Chelsea, but it looked the other way around. The opening minutes saw our side run cluelessly around the pitch with Harry Kane and Son Heung-min trying to get some time on the ball and getting the team to push up.

However, in under just four minutes, the home side made us pay for a shoddy pass from Japhet Tanganga. Kai Havertz got on the end of the ball and slashed it against Davinson Sanchez, who unfortunately turned it into his own net. Conte would have expected his side to bounce back from this and press from the front.

But that never came. Some players looked fatigued, while the others were unsure of their roles. It is the first time the Lilywhites have looked lacklustre under the Italian boss. While we could not find the equalizer, the Blues came up with the second goal on the night. Hakim Ziyech crossed the ball from a free-kick into a dangerous area. 

Worst performance under Antonio Conte?

A lack of communication between Tanganga and Ben Davies saw the young Englishman head the ball into the Welshman and into the back of Hugo Lloris’ net, with the Frenchman looking helpless between the posts. We were then down to two goals and yet there was no enthusiasm or rise in the energy levels of the players. Conte had enough of it and took out Matt Doherty at half-time and brought on Tanguy Ndombele.

The Frenchman instantly made a difference by pressing high up the pitch and winning the second ball. He got into good positions between the lines but could not conjure anything. Soon, the home side took control again, and our frontline was chasing shadows. Kane, in particular, had to work without any service. The gaffer also brought on Bryan GilHarry Winks, and Giovani Lo Celso 20 minutes from time but to no avail.

It was appalling that the West London club were not even playing at top gear. We never caused a problem to Kepa Arrizabalaga, and the crossing from wide areas was shocking, something that was similar in the narrow victory against Watford on the weekend. The 2-0 deficit means that now face an uphill task in the second leg at the N17.

Let us see how some of our fans reacted on Twitter to the disappointing result on the night.
