Tottenham will play against Chelsea at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London at English League Cup (more known as Carabao Cup because of sponsorship reasons) in Semi – Final. London derby as always should be interesting to watch. As always these teams can play unpredictable and beautiful football. Review our thoughts on this match here below.
Tottenham is a great first class football club that shows great result and dynamic football in England’s Premier League and Europe Champions League. Spurs have superb players and perfectly appropriate coach Mauricio Pochettino. The Lilywhites play badly against top clubs at home, they already lost to Liverpool, Barcelona, Manchester City and surprisingly Wolves. At League Cup Liverpool need to stay fit most of all leaders, so the reserves will have their chance. After that match, Tottenham will play against perfectly started playing Manchester United in Premier League. Spurs need to correctly prioritize what they need more.
Chelsea started to play with Maurizio Sarri very well, however, in last matches Chelsea can’t score as much as they want. Blues have great defenders and middle on the squad but they have problems with strikers. Morata totally down, Giroud trying his best, but it’s in the past already. Wingers as Willian and Hazard need someone to finish their crosses and attacks. This time schedule made little bit strange, because Chelsea have less days to rest than Tottenham, therefore they let reserve players to show their potential. Chelsea has made a biggest, for now, transfer at this Transfer window – Christian Pulisic (young american talent form Borrusia Dortmund) but he will back to Chelsea only in summer.
In last 6 matches since the year 2016, Chelsea and Tottenham have won for 3 times each. Only one match was less than 3 goals. Every match was very tough and unpredictable so this time we can assume the same.
