Spurs v. Chelsea Match Preview
Chelsea have squeezed their way through the Carabao Cup this year. They began with their campaign in the third round with an impressive performance at Anfield. After Sturridge opened the scoring in the 57th minute, Palmieri equalized in the 79th minute before Hazard came on to save the day with a stunning solo run and exquisite finish to make it 2-1. Then they stumbled past Lampard's Derby County who gifted the Blues two own goals in the 3-2 win. Then in the quarter-final they needed Hazard again as he netted the only goal of the game in the 84th minute
Chelsea are currently unbeaten in their last four but are struggling to score goals as Morata and Giroud continue to disappoint up front.
Tottenham's league cup campaign has been the reverse. An unconvincing start, overcoming Watford on penalties, before dispatching West Ham away 1-3 and then beating Arsenal convincingly at the Emirates 0-2.
Now the two teams ranked 3rd and 4th in the Premier League head into this crucial match in the cup with all to play for. This is a two-legged affair, which might explain why Tottenham are relatively strong favourites for the home leg.
Chelsea are currently unbeaten in their last four but are struggling to score goals as Morata and Giroud continue to disappoint up front. Chelsea have a few injuries, with Loftus Cheek, Willian, Pedro, Giroud and Kovacic unavailable for this game.
Spurs head into this match off the back of a 7-0 thrashing of Tranmere Rovers. Wanyama, Janssen, Vertinghen, Dembélé, Dier and Lamela are all out for this match.
The two teams have shared the spoils over the years in their head to head and it's a really tough one to call. Having won eight of their last ten matches, Spurs will be hoping to win the first leg as Pochettinho pursues his first trophy with Spurs.
