Chelsea didn't have too much to shout about during the first leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final loss to Tottenham.
Harry Kane opened the scoring in the first half to give Spurs a goal advantage heading into the second leg at Stamford Bridge.
Despite failing to find a way past Paulo Gazzaniga, Maurizio Sarri insisted that he was happy with his side's effort during the game.
"We played with a very good level of determination, with heart and soul," he said in his post-match press conference, per football.london.
"In the last matches we have had problems in the last 30 minutes, but today the application was very good throughout."
Eden Hazard was given another start against Spurs but he did not have his best game in a blue shirt.
However, despite that, the Belgian winger provided one highlight from the game that Chelsea fans enjoyed.
With Chelsea searching for an equaliser deep into the second half, Hazard found himself one-on-one with Kane.
In reality, there was always going to to be one winner.
The Belgian winger showed great feet to manoeuvre past Kane and leave him for dust.
Watch the moment here:
Chelsea fans didn't have much to celebrate during the game but they certainly enjoyed Hazard making a fool of Kane.
Just seconds later, Kane would fall to the ground once more after being brushed off the ball by N'Golo Kante.
That was not the only moment where Hazard made a mockery of a Spurs player.
Dele Alli also fell over when trying desperately to tackle Hazard.
The game was surrounded by controversy, with Tottenham's first goal a major talking point.
VAR awarded Spurs a penalty after a dubious offside call, which Kane would go on to convert.
But the English striker was adamant that VAR got it right on the occasion.
"I played to the whistle, nicked it round the keeper, it was a clear penalty," he said, per the Telegraph.
"VAR is there for a reason and I'm sure they got it right. I knew it was tight, I'll have to watch it back and see.
"I'm a little bit used to it after the World Cup, it's part of the game, will be a big part of the game going forward."News Now - Sport News
