Chelsea vs Tottenham Hotspur Preview

Chelsea vs Tottenham Hotspur

Competition – Carabao Cup 

Stadium – Stamford Bridge

Date: 24th January 2019

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Chelsea will be looking to ride their luck and overturn their 1-0 loss to Spurs in the first leg of this game and book a place in the final.

The Blues were the better side in the second half of that first leg, but they couldn’t get a goal, however, with Tottenham ravaged by injury, there is a huge chance for Maurizio Sarri to reach his first final as the Blues’ manager.

Harry Kane who scored the only goal of the first leg will be missing this game after injuring his ankle.

Heug Min Son is away on international duty while Lucas Moura, Dele Ali, and Moussa Sissoko are all injury doubts for the Lilywhites.

Time and time again Mauricio Pochettino has shown that he is a manager that can get a result from the worst situations and his fans will be hoping he can perform yet another miracle in this game.

Chelsea head into this game after suffering a 2-0 loss at the hands of Arsenal at the weekend and their manager would be hoping his criticism of their performance afterwards can spark a positive reaction from his players.

Chelsea have won four and lost two of the 10 times these teams have met in the English League Cup.

Bookmakers have priced Chelsea up as slight odds-on favourites to come out on top.

Goal markets point to a high-scoring affair while Eden Hazard is clear favourite with bookies to score the opening goal of the game.
