Tottenham Hotspur will face Chelsea in the semi-final of the League Cup final after defeating Arsenal 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium.


Chelsea booked their spot in the last four with a 1-0 win over Bournemouth, thanks to Eden Hazard’s deflected winner.

“A very difficult draw, another London derby,” Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino told Sky Sports.

“We shall see. Chelsea are a great team but we are excited. To be in the semi-final is fantastic for us.”


Burton reached the semi-finals for the first time in their history after Nigel Clough’s side beat Middlesbrough 1-0 on Tuesday.

They face the daunting prospect of trying to stop English Premier League champions Manchester City, who beat Leicester City on penalty kicks to reach the last four.

“The difference was the changes that we made,” Chelsea’s assistant boss Gianfranco Zola told reporters.


“Of course we have a lot of games and players like Eden (Hazard) we need to keep fit. Even in 20 minutes he can make a big difference.”

Zola noted that he was impressed with the performance of England midfielder Loftus-Cheek.

“I was impressed with him. He has done well as a wide player, but he showed a lot of sacrifice as a midfielder,” he said.

“He was getting tired but was disciplined… He is a good boy and works very hard.”
