Chelsea cruised into the Carabao Cup final with a comfortable semi-final victory over Tottenham Hotspur.
Spurs never seriously threatened to overcome Chelsea’s two-goal first-leg lead, and Antonio Rudiger’s 18-minute handled finish from Mason Mount’s corner effectively sealed a Wembley date with either Arsenal or Liverpool.
Spurs and their former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte had a frustrating night as VAR correctly reversed two penalties awarded by referee Andre Marriner for fouls on Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Lucas Moura.
In a better second-half performance from Spurs, Harry Kane had a goal disallowed for offside, but Chelsea always seemed in command – and once they had extended their aggregate lead early on, they were able to maintain control without being at their best.
Following a medical emergency in the crowd, the game was delayed late in the second half, and Chelsea completed the formalities of their triumph on the resumption.
