Sissoko and Son fire Spurs into League Cup final

Spurs have not won a major trophy since their League Cup triumph over Chelsea in 2008 but this will be their ninth appearance in the final of the competition, which they have won four times.

"The final is now in a pocket for three months, we have to wait for the final so we have to focus on what we have coming up".

And Frank fears the raft of postponements will lead to the season having to be extended and said: 'I think it's very important that the EFL, the Premier League and the FA find some kind of guidelines across the four leagues and the cup tournaments. "We've had London derbies and other games but this is the match that took us to a final", he told Sky Sports.

"It's a game that takes us to a final, probably, but I hope not, an empty Wembley final but of course I'm very happy". We could have played better.

Brentford were unable to pull off the sensational win it would take taken for them to reach the Carabao Cup final.

It was the French midfielder's first goal since December 2019, ending a barren run that had stretched to 36 matches.

Son flashed a volley just wide from Sissoko's cross, but Tottenham escaped in the 63rd minute when Ivan Toney's equaliser was disallowed by VAR.

Brentford, in the club's first-ever major semi-final, were always competitive and Spurs breathed a sigh of relief after Toney nodded in from close range only for the goal to be chalked off.

That tight decision proved the crucial moment as Son struck in the 70th minute.

Goals from Moussa Sissoko and Son Heung-min were enough to see off the Bees, who played the final six minutes with 10 men after Josh Dasilva was sent off.

We took full advantage though, doubling our lead 20 minutes from time with a delightful goal from Son, as Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Harry Kane and Tanguy Ndombele combined, with the latter sliding the ideal pass for Son to run onto, skipping away from Henrik Dalsgaard's challenge and finishing clinically past Raya.
