Tottenham edged past London rivals West Ham 2-1 to book their place in the semi-finals of the EFL Cup for a record-equalling 17th time.
West Ham eliminated Manchester United and holders Manchester City to reach this stage but came out second best in an entertaining tie at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Steven Bergwijn and Lucas Moura scored either side of Jarrod Bowen’s equaliser in a frantic five-minute spell to give Spurs a slender lead at the midway stage.
Antonio Conte’s side kept their opponents at arm’s length in a quieter, albeit equally as tense, second half to remain on course for back-to-back finals in this competition.
