Tottenham are one game from ending a 13-year trophy drought as they booked their place in the Carabao Cup final with a 2-0 win over Brentford.

Moussa Sissoko’s first-half goal and a Son Heung-min strike after the break got the job done as Spurs ended a run of three successive domestic semi-final defeats.

Mourinho selected a strong team, spearheaded by Harry Kane and Son in attack and that team selection was rewarded as Spurs took a 12th-minute lead.

They worked the ball out to the left and Sergio Reguilon, back in the side after his coronavirus rule-breaking indiscretion, delivered an inviting ball into Sissoko, who planted a header into the top corner.

Son brought a flying save out of David Raya with a curling shot from the edge of the area and then the Brentford goalkeeper clawed away Lucas Moura’s deflected header from Son’s corner.

Although they dominated possession in the first half, Brentford rarely looked like scoring, but they appeared to have drawn level just after the hour.

The hosts failed to clear a corner and Toney headed home from close range only for VAR to rule him marginally offside.

Tottenham made the most of their reprieve as they finally doubled their lead seven minutes later.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg won the ball back, Kane fed Tanguy Ndombele who played in Son and the South Korean made no mistake with an emphatic finish.

It was his 16th goal of the season and put one foot back on Wembley Way for Spurs.

They went for the kill as Kane was denied by a fine save by Raya and then Ndombele hit the post from an acute angle.

Brentford’s night ended on a sour note as they were reduced to 10 men in the final 10 minutes as Dasilva walked for a horror challenge on Hojbjerg, who left the pitch with a nasty gash on his shin.
