Harry Kane’s well struck penalty ensures that Tottenham Hotspur will travel to Stamford Bridge with a slender advantage when the semi-final of the Carabao cup resumes on January 24.
Michael Oliver seemed unsure when the Englishman went down after keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga’s challenge in the first half, but after consulting with the video assistant referee (VAR) the official pointed to the spot and Kane duly obliged to give Spurs their 3rd straight win against their London rivals.
Even as the Blues are suffering from a slump in form lately, they still made life difficult for Pochettino’s men and should definitely be optimistic about a comeback during the second leg in front of the home crowd.
Eden Hazard was particularly causing problems for Spurs with his trickery and in one instance the Belgian absolutely destroyed Harry Kane with a sublime piece of skill to move away from the 25-year-old’s sliding challenge and leave the England skipper dumbfounded.
The little incident, between arguably the best two players in the league over the last few years, has definitely caught the attention of fans online and Blues fans seemed delighted after watching clips of the incident on Twitter.
