Chelsea vs Tottenham Prediction and Preview

Preview

5th Jan, 2022 @ 04:17 am


When Chelsea and Tottenham meet in the EFL Cup semi-finals on Wednesday evening, there will be fireworks. 

The Blues battled back from a two-goal deficit to draw 2-2 with Liverpool at the weekend, with goals from Kovacic and Pulisic. 

Due to a coach's choice, Romelu Lukaku will miss the EFL Cup match, while Edouard Mendy is with Senegal for the Africa Cup of Nations. 

Ruben Loftus-Cheek is a big question mark, while Reece James, Ben Chillwell, Timo Werner, and Andreas Christensen are all expected to miss out. 

Spurs fought back to beat Watford 1-0 at Vicarage Road, with Davinson Sanchez netting a late winner.

Given Tottenham's recent performances under new manager Antonio Conte, we're tempted to wager on a draw.

Despite the absences of Cristian Romero and Ryan Sessegnon, Conte has no additional selection concerns ahead of the local derby.

This match will take place at 20:45 on January 5, 2022.

Over 1.5 goals is my prediction.
