​Harry Kane’s clinical penalty handed Tottenham a narrow first leg advantage over Chelsea in the Carabao Cup semi final.

Amid a lively opening from both sides, the Spurs striker threatened early on with an audacious over-head kick, which fell into the grateful arms of Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi then tested Paulo Gazzaniga’s handling, before the game’s first moment of controversy. After latching onto a sumptuous Toby Alderweireld ball, Kane was upended by Kepa – only for the linesman to raise his flag.
