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.
