Tottenham Hotspur beat Chelsea in a penalty shootout to advance to the quarterfinals of the Carabao Cup on Tuesday night. Mason Mount missed the crucial fifth spot-kick for Chelsea after Harry Kane had hit his to help his side win the shootout 5-4.
A total of nine penalties had been converted before Mount stepped up to take the 10th, but the England midfielder’s effort clipped the post and went wide.
Chelsea had dominated the first half and new signing Timo Werner netted his first goal for the club with a clinical finish into the bottom corner.
Spurs responded well after the break and debutant Sergio Reguilon’s side-footed effort from inside the area was pushed over the crossbar by Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy, who was also making his first appearance for his new club.
Jose Mourinho’s side got their rewards seven minutes from time when Spaniard Reguilon’s cross sailed through to the back post for Erik Lamela to coolly convert from six yards.
With no extra time played, the match went straight to penalties and Mount was the only player to miss.
Chelsea have lost six of their last eight League Cup penalty shootouts, including all three at the fourth-round stage (also v Burnley in 2008-09 and Stoke in 2015-16).
Jose Mourinho has progressed from 26 of his 31 League Cup ties, with this the first time he has ever progressed via a penalty shootout in the competition, losing his previous three.
Mourinho has faced Frank Lampard four times without winning in his managerial career (D2 L2) – twice as many as he has faced any other manager without registering at least one win.
Timo Werner scored his first goal for Chelsea with his 11th shot for the club in all competitions.
In Carabao Cup on Wednesday four matches will be played –
Newport vs Newcastle
Burnley vs Manchester City
Brighton vs Manchester United
Everton vs West Ham
