Carabao Cup Semi-Final First Leg: Tottenham 1-0 Chelsea (Watch Game Highlights)
Harry Kane’s first-half penalty gave Tottenham a slender advantage after the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg at Wembley.
In an engrossing cup tie, Kane was upended by Kepa Arrizabalaga inside the box midway through the first half, with Michael Oliver awarding the penalty after VAR intervened following an initial call for offside.
N’Golo Kante hit the post for Chelsea, who controlled large spells of the second-half only to gain little change out of a miserly Spurs backline.
Kane was close to his second when, after fine build-up play involving Moussa Sissoko and Alli, his strike from distance was well saved by Kepa, and Kante was denied by Gazzaniga when he hit a drive moments later.
With the win, Spurs have the advantage going into the second leg at Stamford Bridge on January 24.
