Chelsea lost 1-0 to Tottenham in the first leg of their EFL Cup semi-final at Wembley. Harry Kane scored the winning goal from the penalty spot in controversial circumstances.

The striker had been brought down by goalkeeper Kepa but referee Michael Olivier originally blew up for offside.

However, upon a VAR review the offside decision was overturned as a penalty awarded.

But Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri claims fresh footage from a Chelsea camera viewed on his laptop shows Kane was in fact offside.

“A few minutes ago I watched the video from our camera. It was offside,” Sarri said after the game.“Our camera was in line with Harry Kane.

This decision caused quite the controversy. Chelsea players surrounded the referee, who later gave a penalty after resorting to VAR. Kane slotted away the spot-kick and Pochettino’s side went on to win the game 1-0.
