Tuchel - Chelsea 'have no foot in the final' despite 2-0 lead over Spurs in EFL Cup

Chelsea booked their place in the Carabao Cup final with a 3-0 semi-final aggregate win over Tottenham, whose hopes of a comeback were denied by VAR misery.

Thomas Tuchel’s men did half the job in last week’s first leg at Stamford Bridge when they won 2-0 and Antonio Rudiger’s first-half goal in north London settled matters, setting up a Wembley date against either Liverpool or Arsenal next month.

They will get a chance to claim a sixth League Cup and give Tuchel the opportunity of winning a third trophy in just over 14 months in the job.

Spurs were well beaten over the course of the two games, but it could have been different had technology not ruled against them on three occasions in the second leg.

Referee Andre Marriner twice awarded penalties that were overturned while Harry Kane had a goal ruled out for offside as they missed out on a second successive appearance in the final.

21 mins: The equation hasn’t really changed for Tottenham with that goal. They needed to score three goals to win the game anyway and now need three to take the match to extra time. A difficult task has just gotten a bit harder though, if Chelsea score again then it’ll be curtains.
