PLAYERS RATINGS: Chelsea 2-1 Tottenham (4-2)

Another shaky match for Mauricio Sarri after a good start and first half where Chelsea dominated. Chelsea scored twice in the first half by N’Golo Kante and Eden Hazard, where qualification was seen close. However, in the second half, Tottenham Hotspurs had a tactical second half and came back with an early goal that led to a penalty shootout.

The Penalty shootout was in Chelsea’s advantage, as they scored four penalties, and Kepa saved one. This win will make Chelsea face Manchester City next month in the EFL Cup Final.
