Chelsea boss Frank Lampard must be left disappointed with his side’s exit from the Carabao Cup.
Tottenham were heading out of the competition with Timo Werner having put Chelsea in front, but a late Erik Lamela goal was enough to take the game to penalty shootout.
Chelsea were the dominant side in the first half of the game, but for all the Blues dominance, only Werner could get a goal.
Chelsea boss Frank has now hailed his side’s for such a performance, even though he was disappointed with the defeat.
“We were dominant and wanted to score more goals at that point because of the amount of possession, and we had a couple of chances,” he said.
“I think Tottenham would have felt that hard and they changed their game, they went longer in their build which meant our press, which had been fantastic in the first half, was not so relevant up the pitch. They turned us around and we had to go backwards rather than press forwards and then it became very difficult.
“We could have been better on the ball in the second half and maybe dealt with that physical nature of the Spurs game but even so, they had some chances second half and so did we, and at 1-0, one goal finishes it and we didn’t get that.”
