Chelsea beat Tottenham on penalties following a 2-1 win for the home side at Stamford Bridge in a Carabao Cup semi-final second leg on Thursday night.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side’s search for a trophy goes on after a third successive domestic cup defeat in the past few seasons.

Tottenham record in their last 6 semi-finals:

2010 FAC – Portsmouth ❌
2012 FAC – @ChelseaFC
2015 LC – Sheffield Utd ✅
2017 FAC – @ChelseaFC
2018 FAC – Man Utd ❌
2019 LC – @ChelseaFC#CHETOT pic.twitter.com/fgwkaRDBpY

They were unfortunate in that, for the first time in the competition, away goals did not count in the case of a draw and Chelsea had failed to score in the earlier game at Wembley.

A 2-2 draw on aggregate took the match straight to penalties with extra time also binned.

It didn’t take long for hosts to win 4-2 from the spot with Eric Dier and Lucas Moura missing their kicks.

These were the best tweets and jokes as Spurs are defeated by Chelsea in the EFL Cup semi-final:

If you're not sat there all day thinking Tottenham will lose 2-1 and go out on pens when previously they'd go through on away goals, you're not proper Spurs #thfc

Just a reminder that there will be no extra time in tonight's game. In the event of an aggregate draw, the match will go straight to penalties for Spurs to bottle it there.

He didn’t sign Kanté so the Frenchman could stop Manchester City from going unbeaten, extend Spurs’ trophy drought & help win the World Cup for his home nation. Arsène Wenger, he’s done it again.
