Tottenham Hotspur have taken the lead in the first leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final against Chelsea tonight.
The goal was not without drama of controversy, as the referee decided to use VAR on both the offside and penalty calls.
Toby Alderweireld put a pinpoint ball over the top of the Chelsea defence for Harry Kane to run onto.
Although the linesman flagged for offside, the referee, Michael Oliver, played on, at which point Kane was brought down by the Chelsea keeper.
Kane was then adjudged to have been both onside, and fouled by the keeper, with Oliver awarding Tottenham a penalty.
Spurs’ main man stepped up to take the spot kick himself, putting it away in the bottom corner.
Tottenham lead 1-0 at the break, but they are only a quarter of the way there in this two-legged affair.
How do you see this one finishing up? Will Spurs extend their lead?
⚽️GOAL FOR SPURS ⚽️
Drama at Wembley! VAR is used to clarify firstly that Kane was onside and secondly that he was fouled. Kane emphatically dispatches the penalty.
