Thomas Tuchel will be delighted to see his Chelsea side score an early goal in Wednesday evening’s Carabao Cup semi-final second leg against rivals Tottenham Hotspur.
The Blues came into Wednesday’s cup clash leading 2-0 on aggregate following a first-leg victory.
Despite their lead, Tuchel would have been eager to ensure his side didn’t think the job of reaching Wembely’s final was already done – however, following a first-half goal from defender Antonio Rudiger, it may well be now.
Rising highest from a corner, centre-back Rudiger was able to beat goalkeeper Hugo Lloris and head home the game’s opener.
