Sheffield United 2-2 Tottenham (agg 2-3): Spurs survive scare as Eriksen books final spot

Christian Eriksen's late goal broke Sheffield United hearts as Tottenham dramatically secured a League Cup final showdown with Chelsea, winning 3-2 on aggregate after a 2-2 second-leg draw.

The Dane had already curled home a stunning free-kick when he struck again two minutes from time to rewrite the headlines after teenager Che Adams had climbed off the bench to net a quick-fire double and turn a thrilling match on its head.
Eriksen's glorious 28th-minute set-piece looked set to send Tottenham on their way to a re-run of the 2008 League Cup final, when the White Hart Lane outfit were 2-1 winners - their last trophy success.

But United boast a stunning record in knockout competitions under Nigel Clough, with their first-leg reverse - inflicted upon the League One side by Andros Townsend's second-half penalty - only the third defeat they had suffered in 21 previous cup games under his guidance.

And Adams - who only joined from non-League Ilkeston in November - was in no mood to allow that tally to grow, the 18-year-old coming on for the final quarter of an hour and scoring his first two professional goals in an incredible three-minute spell.

But after another United substitute, Louis Reed, had blasted a shot just over from inside the box, Eriksen provided the killer blow to end an incredible night at Bramall Lane.
