Carabao Cup: Chelsea qualify for final, to face Arsenal, Liverpool
January 13, 2022
Chelsea are through to the Carabao Cup final, thanks to a 1-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday night.
The Blues had won the first leg 2-0 last week at Stamford Bridge.
Antonio Rudiger then put the tie beyond Spurs, as he rose highest to head in a corner kick in the 18th minute.
Tottenham battled hard in search of a route back into the tie, but it never happened.
Two penalties awarded by referee Andre Marriner either side of half time, were both overturned after VAR interventions.
Harry Kane’s effort was also ruled out for offside after yet another VAR check.
Chelsea will now try to win the League Cup for a sixth time in the final against Liverpool or Arsenal.
Liverpool host Arsenal in the first leg of their semifinal on Thursday.
