From Tottenham Hotspur Stadium – Chelsea secured their place in the Carabao Cup final with a 1-0 victory at Spurs on Wednesday night, winning the tie 3-0 on aggregate.

Antonio Conte was unable to get one over his former side, who will play either Arsenal or Liverpool at Wembley on February 27.

Though Spurs began the game in the ascendancy, the first big chance went Chelsea’s way when Antonio Rudiger’s ball over the top was met by Romelu Lukaku, but Pierluigi Gollini – starting in place of rested club captain Hugo Lloris – denied the Belgian from close range.

But the Italian stopper won’t want to watch Chelsea’s opener back any time soon. Gollini came to try and meet an in-swinging corner but was beaten to the ball by Rudiger, whose header bounced in off the corner of the bar and post.

That seemed to knock the stuffing out of Tottenham, whose next big chances came just after the half hour mark. Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s deflected shot sailed just past the Chelsea post, before Harry Kane was unable to get a decisive touch on Davinson Sanchez’s header from the resulting corner.
