Jose Mourinho is one win away from delivering what all Tottenham fans crave – a trophy – as his side beat Brentford 2-0 in the Carabao Cup semi-finals.

Moussa Sissoko’s first-half header and Heung-min Son’s emphatic finish secured Spurs’ place in the final, where Manchester United or Manchester City await in April.

Hojbjerg hobbled off shortly afterwards, sporting a nasty scar on his leg as a result of the challenge.
