Tottenham 2-1 Chelsea

Feb 25, 2008

Tottenham came from a goal down to beat Chelsea at Wembley and win the Carling Cup after extra-time.

Jonathan Woodgate won it when Petr Cech disastrously punched the ball on to his head from Jermaine Jenas’s free-kick.

Pascal Chimbonda had hit the bar for Spurs, before Didier Drogba’s 20-yard free-kick gave Chelsea the lead with Paul Robinson badly out of position.

Spurs levelled when Wayne Bridge handled in the box and Dimitar Berbatov coolly rolled in the resulting penalty.

    The defeat could have big repercussions for Chelsea. If reports are to be believed, Avram Grant, Henk Ten Cate and John Terry all fell out before and after the game and now Roman is looking at his options as the last thing he wants is a player revolt with the business end of the season approaching. Don’t be surprised to see Grant leave at the end of the season now though as he may have lost the respect of the players and sometimes that means irreparable damage is done.
