Tottenham vs. Chelsea updates, highlights from the second leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final

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 goal by Kai Havertz and an own goal by Ben Davies 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.
