Tottenham qualified for the quarterfinals of the English League Cup after beating Chelsea on penalties after a 1-1 draw in regulation time, this Tuesday at the opening of the round of 16. Mason Mount missed the Spurs' qualifying pitch on the blue team's fifth pitch, after the previous 9 players converted.
In regulation time, Chelsea had gone ahead in the 19th minute, when with a shot from the edge of the area by German Timo Werner , star signing of the 'Blues' this campaign. But Tottenham was able to balance in the final stretch, with seven minutes remaining for completion, with a goal from Argentine Erik Lamela .
In the match, José Mourinho starred in two incredible moments. The first in a verbal cross with Frank Lampard, whom he directed when the now coach of the blue box was a blue player and the Portuguese was going through his first stage as coach of that team. Despite the joys they both shared between 2004 and 2007, they shouted at each other on the pitch for a reason that has not been publicly clarified yet.
The toilet, the figure of the party
The second was when Eric Dier , from Tottenham , left the pitch and left his team with 10 players to go to the bathroom. “I wasn't happy about that, but I couldn't do anything about it, nature was calling me , “ explained the footballer at the end of the match and added: “I heard there was an opportunity, but fortunately they didn't score.”
It is that Chelsea had a clear chance but Hudson Odoi defined over the crossbar and caused Mourinho to shoot towards the locker room in search of his player. Seconds later, the Portuguese returned after the run and Dier appeared, still adjusting his pants.
At the end of the match, the English midfielder published an image on his social networks with the award for best player of the match on the toilet where he sat for a few minutes of the second half.
Eric Dier was in turn the only outfield player who repeated in Tottenham's eleven, with respect to Sunday's game for the Premier League. “The number of minutes played is dangerous. What Eric Dier did today is very dangerous, ” Mourinho said at a press conference, but insisted: “It should be forbidden to play two games in 48 hours. What he did is not human. “
Tottenham have a particularly busy schedule. In eight days he will play four games and this Thursday he will face the Israeli Maccabi Haifa, in search of a place in the group stage of the Europa League.
On Wednesday the round of 16 of the League Cup will continue, with the two teams from Manchester . City visit Burnley and United visit Brighton .

The Gunners will look to get their revenge in that game.
