Blues beaten by Spurs

09/01/2019

A first-half Harry Kane penalty was enough to see Tottenham win the first leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final match against the Blues.

It was a fairly tight game, and Chelsea had plenty of opportunities! However, Spurs proved too difficult to break down.

Maurizio Sarri named a strong squad, with Hudson-Odoi starting again after a brilliant game against Nottingham Forest earlier in the week. Andreas Christensen also started, and would pop up in the second half to make our closest chance of scoring!

It was Chelsea that launched the first big attack, which nearly set up Hudson-Odoi for a good run, however it was quickly flipped on its head and Christensen had to spring into action! You could tell it was going to be a close game…

It happened again not long after! Kepa was forced to save an overhead kick from Harry Kane, then suddenly it was reversed and Hudson-Odoi was firing the ball into the hands of Spurs keeper Paulo Gazzaniga!

For a while it seemed like Chelsea had the upper hand, but on the 23 minute mark everything changed.

Harry Kane made a run into the box and attempted to skip past Kepa. The two collided, and after a VAR check from the referee, a penalty was awarded. The English striker stepped up and converted it for Spurs.

The first half finished with Chelsea behind, and it wasn’t going to get much better in the second half.

The Blues came out fighting after the restart, but it was Kane again who made the first goal attempt, forcing a save from Kepa.

Our best attempt on goal came in the 57th minute, when a corner was flicked in by Barkley and fell to the feet of Christensen who sent the cross wide! So close!

This started a good spell for the Blues, but it just wasn’t enough to earn us another goal. We’ll have to try harder for the second leg, which will be played at Stamford Bridge on the 24th of January.
