Tottenham vs Chelsea, Wembley Stadium (League Cup Semi-final Leg 1)
Tuesday 8th January, Kick-off: 20:00
– Both teams have scored in five of the last six meetings
– Last two meetings have finished 3-1 to Tottenham
– Chelsea lost in the same stage of the League Cup last season
– Tottenham have scored 24 times in their last six outings
– Chelsea have scored under 2.5 goals in their last 11 matches
This topsy-turvy fixture looks set to excite again as we reach the semi-finals of the League Cup. A place at Wembley against either Man City or Burton awaits the winner over two legs, with this opening leg also being played at Wembley – Spurs’ adopted home.
It’s been goals galore for Spurs this Christmas. 24 goals in their last outings is an impressive figure (averaging at four per game), with some decent opposition beaten in this time. Heavy wins against Everton and Bournemouth were supplemented by a hammering of Tranmere in the FA Cup on Friday; a loss to Wolves was sandwiched in the middle and may prove a crucial loss in their quest for Premier League glory.
Son Heung-Min has been one of the main reasons for Tottenham’s success in front of goal. The energy that the South Korean brings to Spurs’ attack is often instrumental in the way they like to play on the front foot. Kane has also continued his goal scoring form, and with Chelsea’s 3-1 defeat still fresh in their minds from Wembley a couple of months ago, the “home” side will be confident of taking an advantage to Stamford Bridge in a fortnight’s time.
Chelsea have been underwhelming of late. Struggling in front of goal isn’t a problem Sarri usually has with his sides, however, injuries to the likes of Pedro, Willian, Giroud and Loftus-Cheek have left the Italian with limited choices in the final third.
Morata bagged a brace against Forest at the weekend but still looked a little off the pace. Using Callum Hudson-Odoi on the right wing paid dividends with two exceptional assists for the Spanish striker; he’s likely to keep his place come Tuesday with late fitness tests expected for a lot of the attacking options.
It’s likely that Chelsea will come to Wembley with a defensive game plan. A heavy defeat to Tottenham would be hard for the away support to swallow and could well kill the tie before the return trip to West London.
With injuries plaguing Chelsea, a compact midfield is the most likely tactic that Sarri will use to try and nullify this impressive Tottenham team. We’ve only seen one 0-0 in their last sixteen meetings, but Sarri would surely bite your hand off for one on Tuesday
Expect a change in form from what we are used to seeing in this fixture. Goals usually flow when these two meet, but the first leg nature of this tie should dry things up a little.
