Watch Chelsea vs Tottenham Live Match and Goal Highlights
The Blues saw off Brentford 2-0 to reach the final four, while their North London counterparts ran out 2-1 winners over West Ham United in the quarters.
A challenging period both on and off the pitch for Chelsea seemed to reach boiling point during the visit of Liverpool, as Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah put the Reds two goals to the good amid the tension surrounding Romelu Lukaku’s comments from a recent interview.
However, the Blues rallied to rescue a 2-2 draw in a terrific advertisement for the Premier League, as a Mateo Kovacic stunner preceded an injury-time equaliser from Christian Pulisic, who had missed a gilt-edged opportunity to beat Caoimhin Kelleher earlier in the half.
The EFL Cup certainly represents Spurs’ best chance to finally end their 13-year trophy drought – with their last piece of silverware coincidentally coming in the 2008 competition after beating Chelsea in the final – and they made it this far thanks to goals from Lucas Moura and Steven Bergwijn against West Ham.
