Tottenham Hotspur booked their place in the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup as they claimed a 2-1 win over West Ham on Wednesday evening.
The game sparked into life in the 29th minute when a lovely Spurs move involving Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Lucas Moura eventually saw Steven Bergwijn score the opener from the six-yard line.
However, a strong fightback from West Ham then saw them equalise just three minute later when Jarrod Bowen expertly controlled a mishit shot from Nikola Vlasic and worked space to find the far corner with Spurs bodies around him.
A manic five minute spell of action concluded when the excellent Bergwijn squared for Lucas Moura to restore the Spurs lead and provide what would prove to be the match-winning goal.
Second-half substitute Said Benrahma went close to getting West Ham back into things late on, but Spurs were able to see out their win and they advance to the last four where they will take on Chelsea over two legs in early January.

Thankyou for following the Athletic's live blog covering tonight's Carabao Cup quarter-final between Spurs and West Ham.
It proved to be a lively affair and goals from Steven Bergwijn and Lucas Moura mean that it is Antonio Conte's side who advance to the last four, and they will face Chelsea in a two-legged semi-final early next month.
West Ham will be disappointed they could not force their way to penalties late on but having their full focus on the Premier League could be a blessing in disguise with another European qualification well within reach once they get key players back.

Spurs manager Antonio Conte has been speaking the media, including the Athletic's Charlie Eccleshare, and has highlighted the performances of Steven Bergwijn and Matt Doherty from tonight's important win.
Conte says Bergwijn and Doherty "played a really good game. It means they are working hard, they are involved in what we do. I'm always very clear with my players – they have to give me everything and then if they deserve to play, they play." #THFC

David Moyes has been speaking to the media after tonight's game and the Athletic's Roshane Thomas has relayed quotes from the West Ham boss after he was asked about the fitness of key man Aaron Cresswell.
Not the news Hammers fans wanted to hear.
Doesn't sound like Cresswell will be back anytime soon.

Moyes on how close Cresswell is to full fitness: "I don't know, I can't give you an answer at the moment. It is taking a bit longer than we thought." #WHUFC

Lucas Moura has been assessing Spurs' win tonight and has provided a positive outlook on his side's strong form under Antonio Conte.
Speaking to Sky Sports, he said: "I think we started very well. We conceded a goal from our own mistake but I think we controlled the game very well in the first-half. In the second-half, they came and they tried to score but we were solid.
"We need to know how to suffer together and to be solid, and I think we are very strong at the moment."

Carabao Cup semi-final draw:

Arsenal vs Liverpool
Chelsea vs Tottenham

The first leg of these ties will be played during the week commencing January 3rd.
The second leg will be played during the week commencing January 10th.
December 22, 2021 at 5:04 PM EST
Late drama and a penalty shootout have seen Liverpool overcome a tough evening against Leicester and they've put themselves in the hat for the semi-finals. The match ended 3-3 after 90 minutes after a very late Takumi Minamino goal, and Diogo Jota netted the winning penalty.
Spurs and Liverpool are joined by Arsenal and Chelsea in the draw which is imminent.

There looks to be a decent opportunity for Spurs to get their hands on some silverware now that they have made their way through to the last four of the Carabao Cup.

The Athletic's Roshane Thomas looks at things from a West Ham viewpoint…
FT: #THFC 2-1 #WHUFC. West Ham are knocked out of the Carabao Cup.

Rice didn't deserve to be on the losing side. He gave it everything in the second half. Such a shame a number of key players are sidelined. Could have been a different outcome. Need to invest in January. #WHUFC

The thoughts of the Athletic's Charlie Eccleshare after tonight's game…
FT: #THFC 2 West Ham 1. Another really entertaining game and Spurs are into the Carabao Cup semis.

Bergwijn MOM with a goal and assist (coaching matters!), Lloris superb again. Arsenal, Chelsea or Leicester (if they hang on) in the last four.
December 22, 2021 at 4:41 PM EST
Spurs are through. In truth, they probably deserved that given that did not trouble their goal enough in that second-half.
To recap a lively first-half, Spurs took the lead on 29 minutes when Steven Bergwijn provided the finishing touch to lovely move but Jarrod Bowen struck back for West Ham three minutes later.
Lucas Moura then got what would prove to be the deciding goal when he found the net just two minutes after that.
Said Benrahma went closest to finding the equaliser for the visitors late on but it is Antonio Conte and his hosts that go through. They will find out who they will be playing in the semi-finals when the draw is made shortly.

90+2 Spurs 2-1 West Ham
Oof! Andriy Yarmolenko hits the bar with looping effort and a brief bit of mayhem ensues as West Ham goalkeeper Areola comes up for the corner, but Spurs clear…
December 22, 2021 at 4:35 PM EST
90' Spurs 2-1 West Ham
West Ham have three more minutes to get their equaliser or it will be Spurs advancing through to the semi-finals.
It will be Arsenal, Spurs, Leicester and Chelsea in the last four if scores stay as they are.
December 22, 2021 at 4:30 PM EST
85' Spurs 2-1 West Ham
Antonio Conte has responded to his side losing control again and adds some fresh legs to his wing-back positions. Japhet Tanganga and Emerson Royal are on to replace Sergio Reguilon and Matt Doherty and will hope to be able to see off any more promising attacks from their opponents.
December 22, 2021 at 4:26 PM EST
82' Spurs 2-1 West Ham
Said Benrahma has had two more efforts and his third since coming on sees him go very close to equalising.
It's fierce volley across goal from the right side of the area and has Hugo Lloris very worried for a second as the ball flashes just wide. The Algerian looks lively, that's for sure.
Andriy Yarmolenko has also been added to the forward line from the bench for the final minutes.
December 22, 2021 at 4:20 PM EST
77' Spurs 2-1 West Ham
Antonio Conte makes another change as Dele Alli is brought on for Oliver Skipp – seemingly another positive switch from the Spurs boss as he looks for another goal to kill off this tie.
December 22, 2021 at 4:19 PM EST
74' Spurs 2-1 West Ham
Son has had a few nice touches around the box since coming on, but he can't get the ball under control at the right time here as Alphonse Areola dives on the ball before the Korean can shoot from a promising position.
He will be hoping that does not cost his side in the latter stages.
December 22, 2021 at 4:15 PM EST
70' Spurs 2-1 West Ham
Said Benrahma is straight into the action at the right end of the field for the visitors but it's a difficult shot to get on target as he spins and hooks a sliced effort well over the bar.
A positive sign for West Ham but their forwards need the ball more in this last 20 minutes if they are to draw back level.
December 22, 2021 at 4:11 PM EST
68' Spurs 2-1 West Ham
Pablo Fornals and Said Benrahma are on for West Ham. They are introduced for Nikola Vlasic and Manuel Lanzini as David Moyes uses two of his main attacking options from an otherwise limited bench for this evening.
Their brief spell of pressure has died away now and they need to start creating some openings if they are to get back into this one.
December 22, 2021 at 4:04 PM EST
60' Spurs 2-1 West Ham
It's a double change for Antonio Conte as he looks to take full control of this cup tie.
Steven Bergwijn's positive night ends as he is replaced by Son Hueng-Min and Harry Winks has been brought on for second goalscorer Lucas Moura.
December 22, 2021 at 4:02 PM EST
58' Spurs 2-1 West Ham
The visitors have a spell of possession in the Spurs half and work room for Arthur Masuaku to swing in a cross towards the near post.
It's a dangerous one and forces a good clearance from the Spurs defence, but the next attack sees Jarrod Bowen denied a chance to round Hugo Lloris by a strong hand from the Frenchman.
This is just the start to the second period that David Moyes would have wanted.
