24 January 2019 – Chelsea 2 Tottenham Hotspur 1 (Carabao Cup)

Chelsea reached the final of the Carabao Cup by defeating Tottenham Hotspur 4-2 on penalties in the second leg of their semi-final tie at Stamford Bridge after the pair drew 2-2 on aggregate.

With The Blues trailing 1-0 from the first leg, N’Golo Kante levelled matters just before the half-hour mark when he fired a low effort into the net from distance.

Chelsea took a 2-1 lead in the tie 11 minutes later when Eden Hazard rifled the ball home after being picked out by Cesar Azpilicueta.

Spurs had been poor throughout the first half but they levelled the tie five minutes into the second period when Fernando Llorente bundled the ball in from a Danny Rose cross.

Both sides pushed for a winning goal but it didn’t come as the tie went to penalties.

Chelsea keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga was the hero in the shootout as he saved Eric Dier and Lucas Moura’s spot kicks with The Blues reaching Wembley courtesy of a 4-2 success.

27 February 2019 – Chelsea 2 Tottenham Hotspur 0 (English Premier League)

Chelsea held their nerve to defeat Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 at Stamford Bridge and continue their push for UEFA Champions League qualification.

Both sides went close in the first half with Gonzalo Higuain hitting the post for the hosts while Harry Winks did the same for Spurs at the other end.

The deadlock was eventually broken in the second half when Pedro hit a shot which visiting keeper Hugo Lloris should really have saved but the ball trickled over the line.

Harry Kane wasted a good opportunity to level matters before Chelsea were given a helping hand to seal the victory when Kieran Trippier netted an own goal.

The result left Chelsea three points adrift of four place in the English Premier League table with a game in hand.

The Blues opened the scoring in the 12th minute when Willian curled a stunning effort into the net before he doubled his side’s lead from the penalty spot on the stroke of half-time after the spot kick was awarded by VAR.

The second half produced some ugly scenes with Son Heung-Min being sent off for catching Blues defender Antonio Rudiger following a VAR review while there was discontent in the stands with objects being thrown and a complaint of racist chanting.

Chelsea ended the match as 2-0 winners as they continued to occupy fourth spot in the English Premier League table.
