Tuchel restored record signing Romelu Lukaku to the team having dropped him for Sunday’s 2-2 draw with Liverpool. This was punishment for the Belgian saying in an interview that he was unhappy with his role at Stamford Bridge.

“It seems like a deserved win, an excellent result because it reflects the game, we could have scored more but it is hard to score against Tottenham,” Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel told Sky Sports.

“I was pretty sure [Lukaku] was not affected [by the controversy]. Even the last days he seemed relaxed, fine with the situation and mentally moved on,” Tuchel added. “Romelu can handle pressure and adversity, it was a good performance, he contrinbued a lot to our defensive set up and had chances.”

Regarding Spurs’ performance, Conte said: “The first half, we struggled a lot from the start but we know that we are talking about one of the best teams in Europe, in the world, last season they won the Champions League. If you compare the two teams there is not a comparison. We are talking about a team ready to win — today we have seen the difference between the two teams.”

Japhet Tanganga headed away a Ziyech free-kick. But the ball rebounded into the Spurs net off Ben Davies’ shoulder.

Still, Ziyech only said that he hoped Chelsea would not regret their missed chances to regain the lead over Spurs.

“We forgot to finish the game, a lot of chances. Hopefully we get the job done there,” the Moroccan told Sky Sports.

The second leg of the semi-final at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium will now take place on January 12. And whoever wins – Spurs or Chelsea – they will get to face either Arsenal or Liverpool for the final showdown.
