Thomas Tuchel has a 100 per cent record in semi-finals since as coach at Chelsea year ago, having guided us successfully to the FA Cup and Champions League finals last season, and remains on course to make it three semi-final wins out of three with the Blues thanks to two first-half goals in a game we dominated almost from start to finish.

Chelsea performance owed much to the speed with which Tuchel’s side began the tie, sprinting out of the starting blocks to put Antonio Conte’s Tottenham on the back foot from the beginning. That was underlined when it took just five minutes for Kai Havertz to open the scoring, doing well to stay on his feet under pressure and roll a shot past Hugo Lloris from close range, albeit via Spurs defender Davinson Sanchez, after brilliant work by Marcos Alonso to win the ball back in a dangerous area.

That goal and the pace Chelsea were imposing on the game seemed to rattle Tottenham and when Tuchel’s side added  second before half-time, it was an absolute gift, as Japhet Tanganga headed a clearance straight into his team-mate Ben Davies, who knew nothing about it as the ball bounced off him and into the back of the net for an own goal.

Chelsea deserved and so big was the gulf between the sides for much of this first leg, Tuchel and his players will probably come away disappointed that they weren’t able to extend Chelsea’s lead further in the second half.

Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane said ,”Paid the price for a poor first half. But the tie isn’t over yet. Great noise from the away end.”
