Lamela celebrates his equaliser against Chelsea/Sky Sports

Eric Lamela’s 83rd-minute equaliser took Tottenham’s Carabao Cup match against Chelsea to penalty shootout, with Spurs winning 5-4 to progress to quarter-finals.

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

But Tottenham were much more better 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.
