Tottenham reached their first domestic final for almost six years following their 2-0 victory over Brentford on Tuesday evening.
A goal in each half from Moussa Sissoko and Heung Min Son did the damage for Jose Mourinho’s side, who’ll face either Manchester United or Man City in April’s final as Spurs look to win their first piece of silverware since 2008.
However, there was a sour end to the game at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium after Bees midfielder Josh Dasilva was sent off for a reckless challenge on Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.
Despite a sickening gash on his leg, the Dane appears to have avoided a serious injury.
And although there was only a couple of minutes remaining following Hojbjerg’s injury, he was so desperate to continue playing that he had to be physically stopped by Mourinho – with Hojbjerg losing the battle and was therefore eventually replaced by Japhet Tanganga.
Watch the moment below.
