Tottenham 1-1 Chelsea (5-4 pens): Spurs through to Carabao Cup quarter-finals on penalties after late equaliser

Tottenham beat Chelsea 5-4 on penalties to reach the Carabao Cup quarter-finals after Erik Lamela's 83rd-minute equaliser saw the game end in a 1-1 draw.

Chelsea went ahead after 19 minutes in a positive first half for them, with Timo Werner scoring his first goal for the club since his summer move, powering an effort past Hugo Lloris.

But Tottenham were vastly improved after the break and deserved their equaliser as Lamela swept home from debutant Sergio Reguilon's cross with just seven minutes to play, sending the game to a penalty shootout.

With the first nine players stepping up to score, it fell to Mason Mount for the visitors' fifth spot-kick but he pinged his effort wide off the crossbar, knocking Chelsea out despite leading the game for 83 minutes, and sending Tottenham into the quarter-finals.

How Spurs came from behind to beat Chelsea

Chelsea began brightly and made it count when Werner put the visitors ahead. Tottenham debutant Reguilon was beaten far too easily by his fellow Spaniard Cesar Azpilicueta down the right flank, with the Chelsea captain cutting the ball back for Werner at the top of the area. The striker set himself up perfectly before firing a powerful effort into the bottom corner.
