Kane’s penalty gives Spurs Carabao Cup semi-final advantage

Agency, 9 January : Tottenham hold a slender advantage in their Carabao Cup semi-final against London rivals Chelsea as Harry Kane’s penalty earned them a 1-0 win in the first leg at Wembley. See how the action unfolded with Express Sport.

Harry Kane’s 26th-minute spot kick means Mauricio Pochettino’s side will be slight favourites to reach the final although there is plenty of work still to do.

The only goal of the evening arrived in unusual circumstances with referee Michael Oliver eventually awarding a penalty with the help of VAR after Spurs skipper Kane was adjudged to have been marginally onside before being taken out by Chelsea keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Kane tucked away the penalty with his usual aplomb to move fourth, above Cliff Jones, on Tottenham’s all-time list of goalscorers.

The second leg will take place at Stamford Bridge on January 24.
