Thomas Tuchel claims his Chelsea team’s Carabao Cup ambitions to be fueled by it’s shocking defeat to Leicester in last year’s FA cup final.
The Foxes outfoxed the Blues in the FA cup final tie last year. Youri Tielemans’ strike broke many Chelsea hearts as Leicester went on to lift the FA Cup trophy.
“It will not help [that we have the experience of reaching a final] because we lost the match against Leicester,” said Tuchel. “We have to swallow it and move on.
Tuchel and his squad look determined to reach the Carabao Cup Final after a 2-0 win against Tottenham in the first leg of their Semi-Final draw.
“It hurts. It always hurts to lose. But if you make it your final you always have the risk to lose a final of course.”
Chelsea looks in dominant form as they have now won four of their last six in all competitions. Their last two victories coming against Chesterfield in the FA Cup third round and last week’s victory in the Carabao tournament against Spurs.
