EFL Cup: Havertz meets – Chelsea beat Tottenham


Team manager Thomas Tuchel has won the semi-final first leg of the English League Cup with Chelsea.

The Blues defeated last year’s finalists Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday evening 2-0 (2-0) thanks to a goal from national player Kai Havertz, giving them a good chance of reaching the final for the first time since the 2014/15 season. The second leg will take place next Wednesday.

Before the game, however, there was bad news for Chelsea. As Tuchel announced in an interview, midfielder N’Golo Kante and defender Thiago Silva tested positive for the coronavirus in the morning. Both players are isolated.

In the match, Havertz scored the 1-0 in the fifth minute of the game. An own goal from Ben Davies (34th) extends Chelsea’s lead, where star striker Romelu Lukaku was back in the starting lineup after his scandalous interview and subsequent pardon.

Last week Tuchel removed the Belgian from the squad for the league game against Liverpool (2-2) due to controversial statements. Lukaku has since apologized for his statements.
