Tottenham forces Chelsea to their knees in the League Cup after penalties


Tottenham Hotspur has reached the quarter finals of the League Cup at the expense of Chelsea. The team of coach José Mourinho took the longest after penalties. Mason Mount was the only one to miss from eleven meters.

At Chelsea, Édouard Mendy and Ben Chilwell made their basic debut. Hakim Ziyech was still missing against Tottenham, where Steven Bergwijn and Erik Lamela formed the attack. Gareth Bale was still in the stands, while Harry Kane sat on the bench.

It was Timo Werner who opened the score. The assist was credited to César Azpilicueta. The Spanish back simply cut out fellow countryman Sergio Reguilón, after which he served the German striker. He curled the ball into the far corner: 0-1. For a long time Spurs had little to offer in return, although things got better in the second half.

Reguilón was close to the equalizer, but Mendy saved nicely. With Kane and Lucas Moura for Bergwijn, among others, Spurs still forced the 1-1. Lamela saw the Chelsea defense miss a cross from Reguilón six minutes before time and gratefully took advantage. Penalties therefore had to make the decision.

A hero role of the new Chelsea goalkeeper Mendy failed to materialize. All five of Tottenham’s penalties were hit. Mount was fifth on behalf of The Blues, but the midfielder shot wide.
