Tottenham vs. Chelsea live score, updates, highlights from Carabao Cup semifinal second leg

Tottenham have a mountain to climb when Spurs host Chelsea in the second leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final on Wednesday.

Chelsea have a 2-0 aggregate lead after a Kai Havertz goal and Ben Davies own goal gave the Blues a well-deserved lead in the first leg. Tottenham manager Antonio Conte admitted after the game that Spurs lag far behind Chelsea in terms of talent, but that won’t stop his team from fighting for a place in the final.

The Spurs need a two-goal win to send the match to penalties, while a three-goal game would be necessary to avoid penalties and advance straight.

Meanwhile Chelsea are very well prepared, they just need to avoid major disappointment to book a place in the final at Wembley.

Sporting News will follow the event live and provide score updates, commentary and highlights as they happen.
