Antonio Rudiger’s only goal helps Chelsea go into the finals of the Carabao Cup

Chelsea have gone into the finals of the Carabao Cup after defeating Tottenham Hotspur in the semifinals on Wednesday night.

Chelsea FC beat Tottenham Hotspur in the Carabao Cup semifinal match which was held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Wednesday night. The only goal by Chelsea’s defender Antonio Rudiger was enough for the blues to go into the finals of the competition. Thomas Tuchel’s men were not in good form lately in the Premier League as they lost so many points from the winning position. But, they have been one of the brightest teams in the Carabao Cup as they are the first finalist of the tournament this season.

Antonio Conte did make some changes to his team and there were some of the regular players missing for Spurs but still, they only conceded a single goal against the Blues. Thomas Tuchel named Romelu Lukaku in the starting 11 after he said sorry to the fans for his comments last week. The one and only goal scored in the match came in the 18th minute. It was assisted by midfielder Mason Mount and scored by Chelsea’s in-form defender Antonio Rudiger who is also reportedly unhappy and wants to leave the club at the end of the season. There are so many big European clubs that are looking for the central defender named Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain, even there was a rumor last week of him (Antonio Rudiger) going to another Premier League club Manchester United.

The second half sees no goal but some amazing chances by the host (Tottenham Hotspur). Spurs had 15 shots on goal in comparison to Chelsea’s 13. Despite creating most chances in the game, Conte’s men couldn’t score the goal they were looking for, and thus, they had to settle themselves for a defeat. Chelsea is now into the finals and they will face either Arsenal or Liverpool in the finals as both the teams will be facing each other in the semifinal match on Thursday night.
