We take a look at the standout statistics from last night’s victory over Tottenham in the Carabao Cup semi-final…
We had 21 shots to Tottenham’s five, Olivier Giroud recording a game-high five, followed by Eden Hazard with four.
Five of our attempts were on target and a further six blocked.
We had a 53.7 per cent share of possession.
Our pass success rate was 84 per cent (Tottenham’s was 79). In total we completed 398 passes, with Cesar Azpilicueta registering a game-high 54. Jorginho was next with 50.
Hazard was responsible for five of the 19 key passes we recorded. Olivier Giroud and N’Golo Kante made three apiece.
Hazard and Emerson both completed four dribbles, with Erik Lamela and Moussa Sissoko the Tottenham men most often beaten.
We won exactly 60 per cent of the aerial duels contested (21 to 14). The strikers at either end, Giroud and Fernando Llorente, won six each.
It was a hotly-contested London derby and the 32 successful tackles were shared equally between the teams, although our win percentage rate was higher. Azpilicueta and Jan Vertonghen won four apiece.
David Luiz made the highest amount of clearances (four) and interceptions (three) for us, while his centre-back partner Toni Rudiger won four aerial duels.
Tottenham committed 16 fouls to our nine, with Eric Dier responsible for a game-high four. We received three yellow cards to Tottenham’s one. Hazard, Kante and Jorginho were each fouled three times.
Kante has scored four goals in 30 appearances for us in all competitions this season, as many as he netted in his previous three seasons in England combined (4 in 129 appearances).
