EFL Cup semi-final

Harry Kane gives Spurs first-leg advantage

Tottenham earned a narrow 1-0 win in the first leg of the EFL Cup semi-final against Chelsea at Wembley. 

In a close game, Tottenham took the lead when Harry Kane converted a first-half penalty after Kepa sent him sprawling. After a lengthy VAR consultation, Kane belted a low spot kick into the bottom corner of the goal.

Kante then hit the woodwork at the near post from a Marcos Alonso cross, and in first-half stoppage time Hudson-Odoi's deflected cross nearly outsmarted Paulo Gazzaniga, only to come off the inside of the post for Toby Alderweireld to clear.

Chelsea dominated the ball in the second half but failed to find the net as Andreas Christensen missed a fine chance at the far post, meaning Spurs have the advantage going into the second leg at Stamford Bridge on January 24.

Mauricio Pochettino: "I don't like it [VAR], today we got the benefit but watching the World Cup and La Liga - no-one is happy. To get the benefit is nice but I'm not happy to win the game like this."

Maurizio Sarri: "I saw the video from our camera a few minutes ago, it was offside. Our camera was in line with Kane, and it was offside, but it's not important. With the head, it's offside. But it's not important. It was important that the linesman stopped the run, he didn't follow the ball, so he had a big influence on our defenders, and at the moment I think the English referees aren't able to use the system."
