After a dominant performance against Spurs on Wednesday night, Chelsea booked their spot in the EFL Cup final.Chelsea

In the first leg, Thomas Tuchel’s side won 2-0, and it was up to Antonio Conte’s side to turn the tie around in the second leg of this semi-final, but they failed.

Rudiger gave the Blues the lead early in the first half, capitalising on Gollini’s slip to head home a Mount corner.

Spurs did win a penalty kick before the first half ended, but VAR officials overturned Andre Marriner’s initial verdict that Rudiger had tripped Hojbjerg in the box.

In the second half, he gave a second penalty, but the VAR again sided with Chelsea after Kepa took down Lucas Moura in the box by getting the ball.

Spurs’ poor luck continued when Kane’s goal was disallowed due to offside, prolonging their trophy drought.

Conte will be envious of his previous club after today, with Tuchel’s squad brimming with quality.

Spurs completely lacks any spark off the bench, even though the tie was all but finished before the second leg.

Chelsea’s unbeaten record currently stands at 11 games, and the Italian will definitely benefit from the experience.
