FT: Tottenham Hotspurs 0-1 Chelsea; First half goal from Rudiger seals victory for Blues! VAR drama for Spurs

FULL TIME

Chelsea are through to yet another FINAL! The Blues are coming to Wembley. The game ends 3-0

Game interrupted

There’s a pause in play at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for an incident in the stand.

No Goal for KANE

Kane is a denied a goal after he was ruled offside by VAR. The drama at the Tottenham stadium is unparalleled

Second Half

We are back for the second half of the Carabao Cup semifinal between Tottenham vs Chelsea. 45 minutes left for Spurs to equalise or for the Blues to enter the FINAL!

Inter 1-1 Juventus

In Italy, Juve and Inter are slugging it outbfor a winner.

McKennie opened the scoring. Alvaro Morata found Weston McKennie inside the Inter box and the USA international headed past Samir Handanovic.

Lautaro Martinez pulled Inter level. The Argentine striker sent it into the top corner from a penalty after Mattia De Sciglio brought down Daniele Doveri in the box.

Spiderman is in the building

Half-time

That was an intense first half! Chelsea leading 3-0 on aggregate.

NO PENALTY

The penalty decision has been checked by VAR. No penalty – a Spurs free-kick has been awarded instead.

Penalty for SPURS

Penalty awarded to Tottenham. Hojbjerg is tripped by Rudiger outside the box and then appears to clip his own heels just inside it. VAR is checking it though.

Mountain for Spurs to climb

Fantastic Antonio!

Gooaaaal Tottenham 0-1 Chelsea

Chelsea take the lead! Is it all over already? Antonio Rudiger heads in from a corner. Tottenham 0-1 Chelsea (0-3 agg)

Rudiger causing trouble!

A couple of early Chelsea chances…Rudiger’s long passes from deep are causing problems.

It is basic stuff, but enough to open up the Spurs defence twice in the last couple of minutes.

Kickoff!

We are underway! Can Spurs overturn the 2-0 deficit or will Chelsea stroll to the final? We would find out at the end of this game!

It is a feast of pure and unadulterated football as London shakes to the core with Tottenham taking on bitter rivals Chelsea in the return leg of the Carabao Cup semifinal.

Team News
