An exciting encounter set to entertain Premier League fans on Tuesday as Tottenham Hotspur facing up against Chelsea in the first leg of Carabao Cup (EFL Cup) semifinal.
Tottenham Looking to Maximize Home Advantage
Acting as host in the first match up, Tottenham will be looking to take full advantage, though they’re not actually playing at their home turn.
Playing at Wembley hasn’t always been positive for Mauricio Pochettino’s men, but things have certainly improved this season.
Battling Chelsea won’t be an easy task, but they did beat Maurizio Sarri’s men at the same ground back in November.
That previous result should give Spurs that air of confidence that they can pick up similar result on midweek and get themselves that first leg advantage.
Chelsea Looking for Revenge at Wembley
The Blues themselves will be looking for revenge for their previous defeat in the Premier League, though it won’t be an easy task.
Sarri’s side are still having some issues up front with the inconsistency of Alvaro Morata, though he did score two goals in their recent FA Cup tie.
Chelsea will most likely count on Eden Hazard’s brilliance once again to help them getting positive result on the first leg encounter.
Injury will be the Blues main issue with the likes of Pedro, Willian, Olivier Giroud and Ruben Loftus-Cheek potentially out for that match.
