Chelsea boss, Maurizio Sarri, has said his side was unlucky not to come away with a better result, as they lost 1-0 to Tottenham in the first leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final on Tuesday night.

Harry Kane scored the decisive goal from the penalty spot in the first half, following the intervention of Video Assistant Referee (VAR).

However, the Blues dominated against Spurs, who hammered them 3-1 in the Premier League back in November.

“We deserved more because in this match we played better than the opponents.

“We were in control of the match and defended well against a team dangerous in the offensive phase, so we deserved more.

“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 deserve more.

“So I am really disappointed with the result but very happy with the performance, one of the most important of the season from my team,” Sarri told a media conference after the game.
