Tottenham will face Manchester City or Manchester United in the EFL Cup Final after goals from Moussa Sissoko and Heung-min Son took them past an impressive Brentford side in north London on Tuesday.

Spurs had to weather early pressure from their Championship visitors before Moussa Sissoko headed the hosts in front in the 12th minute. An evenly balanced tie seemed to be swinging back toward Brentford early in the second half and Ivan Toney thought he had leveled the match when he turned home the rebound from Ethan Pinnock's header only for VAR to adjudge him to have been slightly offside.

Soon after the game moved out of sight from Brentford as Heung-min Son converted an impressive move. Former Arsenal midfielder Josh Da Silva saw red for a rash tackle on Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg as Brentford's first major cup semifinal ended in frustrating fashion.

Read on for the key talking points from the game.

Spurs need wake-up call to avoid familiar problem

Another early goal from Tottenham was almost a double-edged sword for Jose Mourinho. The manager has previously complained about how his side retreat into their shells when they strike early, a habit that cost them two points against Crystal Palace and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

So when Sissoko rose to flick home Sergio Reguilon's delicate cross from the left flank what was most intriguing was how Spurs would maintain their position in the ascendancy, particularly as Brentford had proven prior to the 12th minute that they were more than capable of holding their own. For the most part they did so more effectively than they have in recent weeks, and the moments they were camped back in their own box were often as much due to the Bees' quality as anything else.

Perhaps Toney's near-goal was the wake-up call Spurs required, from the moment VAR denied their visitors the verve that was missing from so many of their attacks beforehand was immediately apparent. Its timing was perfect against an opponent that had put so much into the search for parity. Son then entered the fray in his usual fashion. A clinical run and strike was enough to rip the heart out of Brentford and ensure a first domestic final berth since 2015.

Brentford prove their worth

A kneecap might have been all it was that denied Brentford a first major final in their history. Tottenham could have had few complaints if the Championship high-flyers had beaten them to the punch even if the scoreline looked like a rather comfortable win for the Premier League hosts.
