Chelsea are firmly in control ahead of the second leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final against Tottenham, having won the first match 2-0 at Stamford Bridge.

Kai Havertz opened the scoring in west London before a Ben Davies own goal doubled Chelsea’s lead to give them a great chance of reaching Wembley.

Blues boss Thomas Tuchel, however, has warned against complacency, saying: We have no foot in the final, we don’t think about that.

‘It is another tough match in a tough stadium, they are a very good team and have a top, top coach.

‘We are prepared and it is better not to expect too much, we need to be fully aware of everything.’
