The players of West Ham and Tomáš Souček lost in the quarterfinals of the English League Cup 1: 2 Tottenham and end up in the competition. Chelsea is also in the semifinals after a 2-0 win over Brentford and Liverpool, who beat Leicester after a 3-3 and 5-4 draw. Already on Tuesday, Arsenal secured the participation in the top four.
West Ham lost the elite striker Antonia, who tested positive for coronavirus, just before the match. Vladimír Coufal was also missing due to the red card from the league derby with Arsenal, Alex Král spent the match on the bench.
All goals at Tottenham fell between the 29th and 34th minutes. Bergwijn sent “Roosters” into the lead after a nimble combination. Bowen immediately relaxed and lined up, but Lucas Moura had the last word.
Liverpool coach Jürgen Klopp gave leave to most regular players in the top 11, but the substitutes were able to resist Leicester in full force. This is despite the fact that “Lišky” led by two goals in the 13th minute thanks to the goals of gunner Vardy.
But he soon lowered Oxlade-Chamberlain and responded to Maddison’s shot after a pause in Jota. The 3 – 3 equalizer was scored by the second Premier League team in the fifth minute of the Minamino setting, so the penalty shootout decided the way forward.
After Thomas’s hesitation, Minamino could have decided in it, but he had not changed in the last series either. Subsequently, Bertrand did not give in either, and Jota did not despise another chance to advance.
Chelsea also played in a very combined line-up and she also won the promotion on the Brentford field. In the 80th minute, the home captain Jansson decided his own goal, and Jorginho also secured the result from the penalty.
