Tottenham fail to make it to the Carabao Cup final.It’s now 5,071 days since they last won a trophy.

The Blues went into the game knowing what they needed to do to reach a third final since Thomas Tuchel took over as head coach a year ago, having triumphed 2-0 in the first leg at Stamford Bridge. Once again Tuchel won the tactical battle against opposite number Antonio Conte, returning to the 4-4-2 formation which worked so well against Spurs previously, before reverting to 3-4-3 when we needed to steady the ship in the closing stages in North London.

With Chelsea carrying a two-goal lead over from the first leg, the opening goal at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium was always going to be massive for the tie as a whole, explaining the joyful celebrations from those in Blue when it went Chelsea’s way.

Just inside the first 20 minutes, Werner cut inside onto his right and saw his low shot blocked behind for a corner. That was only a temporary reprieve for Spurs though. Mount swung in the set-piece from the left and when Gollini came rushing out and failed to punch, Rudiger was right behind him to provide a brave header that went in off the underside of the crossbar.

It was advantage Chelsea again, now having a 3-0 aggregate lead to defend in order to reach the final, and that Rudiger strike seemed to knock the fight out of Tottenham, at least temporarily. More half chances followed, Callum Hudson-Odoi coming closest with a low effort after cutting in onto this right foot, Gollini getting down quickly to paw it away.

Tottenham Hotspur coach Antonio Conte said,”Over two legs, Chelsea deserved to go to the final. But I think in the second leg tonight we deserved a better final result. We created many chances and the players played with a great intensity, with a will, a desire, not to lose the game. We were also a bit unlucky. I don’t like to use this word, but sometimes it can happen during the game, two penalties that were changed and a goal disallowed after VAR. Then, we had many chances to try to score. But at the end, I repeat, Chelsea deserved to reach the final, and we have to know this.”

Chelsea’s Antonio Ruediger said , “For me, the most important thing is to lead by example.”
