Chelsea reached the League Cup final with a 1-0 win at Tottenham as Antonio Rudiger’s goal and three VAR decisions helped the Blues seal a 3-0 aggregate success on Wednesday.
Rudiger’s first-half header ensured Chelsea pressed home the advantage they had earned with a 2-0 win in the first leg last week.
Thomas Tuchel’s team also had VAR official Mike Dean on their side as Tottenham were given two penalties by Andre Marriner, only for reviews to overturn both, while Harry Kane saw a goal disallowed for offside.
Chelsea will play Liverpool or Arsenal in the final at Wembley on February 27.
It is Chelsea’s first League Cup final appearance since 2019 as they aim to win the competition for the first time since 2015.
Tuchel has now taken Chelsea to three finals since taking over from Frank Lampard in January 2020. – Supersport
