Chelsea have qualified for the final of the 2019 Carabao Cup after beating Premier League rivals Tottenham 4-2 on penalties on Thursday night, January 24.
Tottenham won the first leg at the Wembley stadium 1-0, and their hope was to get a good result in the second leg at Stamford Bridge, but they lost.
Although Chelsea defeated Spurs 2-1 after 90 minutes, but the match ended 2-2 on aggregate before going into penalties.
But before going into penalties, N’Golo Kante scored the first goal for Chelsea in the 27th minute when Alderweireld sloppily conceded a corner in which the delivery was over by Llorente before Kante scored.
The Blues scored their second goal in the 38th minute through Eden Hazard who was assisted by Cesar Azpilicueta.
Tottenham then came back into the match in the 50th minute when Llorente scored after benefiting from a superb cross from Rose.
The match was then forced into penalties where Moura and Dier missed their kicks for Tottenham before David Luiz netted the winner for Chelsea to win 4-2.
Earlier, Continentour.com.ng had reported how Maurizio Sarri was warned by Chelsea chiefs to finish the Premier League club among the top four clubs at the end of the season or face being kicked out at Stamford Bridge.
This comes after the Blues hierarchy allowed the signing of Argentine football star Gonzalo Higuain which now puts pressure on Maurizio Sarri to deliver.
And the former Napoli coach has been urged by owner Roman Abramovich to make sure the Blues qualify for next season’s Champions League by finishing among the top four and also win titles for the club.
