MATCH REPORT - CHELSEA HEAD TO WEMBLEY AFTER RUDIGER SEALS EASY WIN OVER SPURS
Chelsea head to Wembley after Rudiger seals easy win over Spurs
End of 2nd Half
Chelsea reach the Carabao Cup final for the ninth time in their history after producing a hard-fought 1-0 win against Tottenham in the semi-final second leg (3-0 on aggregate) at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Antonio Rudiger's first-half header was the difference in north London in a game where Tottenham correctly had two penalty decisions overturned and a goal disallowed by VAR.
KEPA DENIES SESSEGNON!
It's an excellent save from Kepa, who has had a great game, to deny Sessegnon from close range following a Gil corner.
KANE SHOT BLOCKED
Kane looks to turn and shoot but his effort is blocked off. Tottenham are continuing to battle here despite their fate appearing to have been sealed.
We are back underway and we will have SIX minutes of added time.
THE WAIT CONTINUES
Referee Andre Marriner and Harry Kane are in consultation on the touchline. We will wait to see how much time is added on.
WE CONTINUE TO WAIT
It is not yet clear what is happening in the stands but we have not resumed play just yet.
A PAUSE IN PLAY
There is an occurrence unfolding behind one of the goals and men in high-vis jackets are making their way into the stands.
Jorginho blasts over the bar and it is at this moment we will have some substitutions. Winks comes off for Skipp while Jorginho makes way for Loftus-Cheek.
POOR FROM WINKS
Winks lashes a fierce shot on goal from 30 yards out, but he blasts his effort well over the bar.
Kante is on for Kovacic.
TOTTENHAM PUSHING FORWARD
Tottenham have committed more men forward with Chelsea happy just to soak the pressure up now they have a three-goal advantage.
WHO WILL THE WINNER FACE?
Unless Tottenham pull off a remarkable turnaround in these final 15 minutes, Chelsea will play Liverpool or Manchester United in the League Cup final at Wembley on February 27.
Bryan Gil comes on for Lo Celso.
Giovani Lo Celso
THREE CHELSEA SUBS
Silva, Alonso and Ziyech come on for Christensen, Werner and Mount.
SUBSTITUTION FOR SPURS
For Tottenham, Sessegnon comes on for Doherty.
VAR RULES OUT KANE'S GOAL!
Kane's right foot was deemed to be ahead of Christensen with only Rudiger in front of him and VAR denies Tottenham for the third time this evening!
GOAL? KANE GOAL GOES TO VAR!
Kane looks like he has scored his 250th goal for Tottenham but WE HAVE ANOTHER VAR DECISION. Was Kane offside as he picked up the ball from Lucas Moura? He is ahead of Kepa but his right foot may have been in front of Christensen.
BRILLIANT SAVE FROM KEPA!
Emerson's driving header as he surges towards goal is parried away by Kepa! He shows great reflexes to dive to his left and push it away.
ANOTHER TOTTENHAM CORNER
Lo Celso's corner into the box is flapped at by Kepa but he does just enough to get the ball away.
