Chelsea Secure Carabao Cup Final

January 28, 2019 by

Chelsea has won through a penalty shoot-out at the Stamford Bridge, beating Tottenham and securing their place at the final of the Carabao Cup, where they will be facing Manchester City.

The 90 minute game, that saw the tie finally end in a 2-2 aggregate was settled when David Luiz scored the winning kick not long after Kepa Arrizabalaga managed a decent save from Lucas Moura. Chelsea, who have since reached 15 finals in the last 16 years in all of their competitions, are now preparing to take on Pep Guardiola’s team at Wembley.

Maurizio Sarri, boss of the Blues, celebrated with his side after saying that his players were extremely difficult to motivate not long after Chelsea lost to Arsenal. Trailing 1-0 from the first leg of the semi final at Wembley, the team was level on aggregate when N’Golo Kante shot a first timer kick from 20 yards, which went through three pairs of legs after a corner.

Eden Hazard proved his mettle after he pushed Chelsea into a 2-1 aggregate lead with a superb finish after being picked to play by captain Cesar Azpilicueta. Tottenham were playing without duo Harry Kane and Dele Alli, who are both injured and off the team temporarily, as well as Son Heung-min, who is currently playing with South Korea at the Asian Cup.

They weren’t able to produce a single shot on target during the first half of the match, but forced penalties after Fernando Llorente converted Danny Rose’s cross.
