Christian Eriksen steers Spurs to final and warns of Chelsea ‘revenge’

• Dane warns of backlash after 5-3 win over Blues on 1 January
• Eriksen secures equaliser in 2-2 draw at Sheffield United
Kane provided focal point for Tottenham success at Sheffield United
Match report: Sheffield United 2-2 Tottenham Hotspur (2-3 on agg)

Christian Eriksen scored the late equaliser against Sheffield United that took Tottenham Hotspur into the Capital One Cup final against Chelsea, then warned that José Mourinho’s side will be seeking revenge for their 5‑3 defeat on New Year’s Day. The Dane had opened the scoring with a superb first-half free-kick to give Spurs a 2-0 aggregate lead in the tie and they looked to be cruising to the Wembley final on 1 March. But goals on 77 and 79 minutes from Che Adams, an 18-year-old second-half substitute, looked like taking the sides into extra time before Eriksen’s second of the night.

“Sheffield United definitely gave us a big fight. They gained confidence after they scored their first goal, the second one was a bit lucky but we came back at the end,” Eriksen said. “This season when we have been in front we have given stupid goals away and it is something we need to stop doing,” he added, before saying the west London club will want to avenge the defeat at Spurs on 1 January. “Chelsea will probably want revenge in the final but I am really looking forward it.”
