Spurs To Meet Chelsea In Wembley Final

Another Christian Eriksen late strike sent Tottenham Hotspur through to the final of the League Cup at the expense of Football League club Sheffield United.

The ‘Lilly Whites’ came into Wednesday night’s return leg with a 1-0 advantage from last week’s first leg at White Hart Lane and after United’s 18-year-old substitute Che Adams struck twice in three minutes to cancel Eriksen’s first-half free-kick, the prospect of extra-time was fast beckoning.

But the Danish striker sealed a 3-2 aggregate win with only two minutes left to the dead, latching on to Harry Kane’s pass to send a neat low shot into the bottom right corner from the edge of the penalty area.

The win sets Spurs up for a Saturday, March 1st Wembley final date with Chelsea- neighbours which they topped in the 2008 League Cup final to claim their last piece of silverware till date.

Eriksen has now scored four decisive goals in the 87th minute or later for Mauricio Pochettino’s side this season.
