Chelsea 2-1 Tottenham (Agg. 2-2) Penalties 4-2

Chelsea won a penalty shootout on a night of high drama at Stamford Bridge, overcoming Tottenham to secure a Carabao Cup final meeting with Manchester City.

After an entertaining 90 minutes where N’Golo Kanté gave the hosts a perfect start with a lovely finish.

Eden Hazard doubled the Blues lead before the half time.

Tottenham pulled one back in a more productive second half through Fernando Llorente making it 2-2 on aggregate as the match headed for penalty shootouts.

David Luiz scored the winning shot after Eric Dier penalty miss and Kepa Arrizabalaga‘s fine save from Lucas Moura.

Chelsea scored all four of their spot kicks – Willian, Azpilicueta, Jorginho and Luiz all keeping their composure.

While Tottenham missed two of their four kicks – Eric Dier, a World Cup penalty shootout hero for England in Russia, firing over the bar before Moura was denied by Arrizabalaga.

Chelsea will play Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final in February 24 at Wembley Stadium.
