Tottenham ousts Sheffield United, to meet Chelsea in League Cup final


SHEFFIELD, England (AP) — Christian Eriksen added a late goal to his sublime early free kick to help Tottenham scrape a 2-2 draw with third-tier Sheffield United on Wednesday and secure a place in the League Cup final against Chelsea.

Tottenham advanced 3-2 on aggregate.

United looked like taking the semifinal to extra time when substitute Che Adams scored in the 77th and 79th minutes to leave the score at 2-1, and 2-2 on aggregate.

However, Eriksen ran on to a through-ball from Harry Kane and slotted a left-foot finish into the corner in the 88th.

United surprisingly beat Premier League teams West Ham and Southampton on the way to the last four — emulating its run to the FA Cup semifinals last season.

The final is at Wembley Stadium on March 1.
