MATCH REPORT - CHELSEA EASE PAST SPURS ON CONTE'S RETURN
It was a straightforward evening in the end for Romelu Lukaku and Co against Tottenham who produced one of their most disappointing performances of the Antonio Conte era.
Chelsea ease past poor Spurs in semi-final first leg on Conte's return
FULL-TIME!
Chelsea take a comfortable lead heading into the League Cup semi-final second leg after a 2-0 win over London rivals Tottenham at Stamford Bridge. A heavily deflected Kai Havertz strike and a Ben Davies own goal following a misguided header from Japhet Tanganga were enough for the hosts in a game which Spurs boss Antonio Conte will want to quickly forget on his return to Stamford Bridge.

CHANCE FOR LUKAKU!

WASTED CHANCE
Chelsea are pushing hard for another goal. Pulisic sprints to the byline and looks to float a cross into the danger area, but it flies out for a goal kick.
