Chelsea v Tottenham Hotspur tips

Posted on: 21st January 2019

After the non-event that takes place between Burton and Manchester City, we have the chance to enjoy a proper EFL Cup semi-final on Thursday night and the tie between Chelsea and Tottenham couldn’t be more nicely poised.

It was Spurs who enjoyed a 1-0 first leg victory although that was a win that was scarcely deserved, with the Blues piling on the second half pressure and they’ll feel confident of getting the job done.

Maurizio Sarri was scathing of his team’s performance at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday, although the money has come for Chelsea to win this game and they are now trading at 6/10 to win the match.

These odds look a touch skinny and we prefer the even money that the west London side go through to the final given that this could be through an extra-time or even a penalty shootout victory.

After all, Chelsea will come up against a Tottenham side missing Harry Kane, Son Heung-Min and probably Dele Alli, with the latter pulling his hamstring at Craven Cottage as victory was snared by Mauricio Pochettino’s side in the final few minutes.

Quite simply, Chelsea only need to win the game by a single goal to force extra-time and they will have been intrigued by Fulham serving up the game to Spurs on Sunday and nearly leaving with a point.


While Eden Hazard has been noticeably quiet for Chelsea in recent weeks, he could make a big impact in this match and there are fewer injury worries for a team who will look to bounce back after losing at the weekend.
