Willian, Cesar Azpilicueta, Jorginho and David Luiz then scored from the spot to send the Blues through to face Manchester City on February 24th, while Eric Dier and Lucas Moura missed for Spurs.

Gianfranco Zola admitted that Maurizio Sarri is trying to find "common ground" with Eden Hazard about the best way to maximise the Belgian in Chelsea's system.

Speaking at a post-match news conference, Sarri was keen to stress he did not attack his players over the Arsenal performance, he merely pointed out problems he hopes Thursday's result can be a catalyst to tackle.

"I think in this match we played with another mind, with another motivation, with another determination".

"I had Mark Hughes and Luca Vialli, and when I could play off them it was much better for me".

"I only said that we had a problem".

"He was a bit exhausted in the last part of the match but he ran a lot I think". For me, the best response is to be on the pitch and to win games. Nobody said what it meant to move to Wembley to create another project and not only this - we were going to play only one season at Wembley and now it's almost two seasons and no one says nothing.

"Sometimes we forget where we came from four and a half years ago". Chelsea, no? And after losing on penalties what are we going to say?

Ironically, in years gone by Tottenham would have qualified on away goals but the away goals rule was abolished for this season's Carabao Cup.

Spurs looked a different side after the break and it made for an enthralling encounter, but Sarri will be delighted with the manner of their victory. The Argentina forward watched the game, having not signed in time to feature, although he is eligible for the final. "To play as well as he played all the time is impossible, but we need to get as close as possible".

While it looked a tidy finish from Llorente on first glance, replays showed just how poor Luiz's marking was inside the penalty area.
