Sarri believes Chelsea deserved more after side’s Carabao Cup loss

Harry Kane’s VAR-assisted penalty gave Tottenham a slim advantage in their Carabao Cup semi-final against Chelsea following a 1-0 first-leg win at Wembley on Tuesday.

Kane scored from the spot in the 26th minute after being scythed down by Kepa Arrizabalaga, with the video assistant referee ruling the England striker had stayed onside in the build-up.

“I think so. I think that we deserved more because in this match we played better than the opponents. We were in control of the match. We defended really very well against a team that is very dangerous in the offensive phase. So I think we deserve more.

“But we played about 70 balls in the opposition box against 11 balls of Tottenham in our box. 18 shots against seven, I think. Five goal opportunities against two. So we deserved more.

“But I am really disappointed with the result but I am really happy with the performance because in my opinion this one is one of the most important performances of my team in the season.”said Maurizio Sarri, Chelsea manager. 

It gave Spurs a win they perhaps did not deserve as Chelsea twice hit the woodwork, but there will be no complaints from the hosts as they registered a third successive victory over their London rivals for the first time since 1963. SNTV
