Tottenham Hotspur v Chelsea betting tips

Spurs can draw first blood in their EFL Cup clash

Tottenham still have the chance to land the quadruple this season although the majority of supporters would be happy with a top four finish, a decent run in the Champions League and a trophy.

They might be in luck as far as the latter is concerned after seeing off Tranmere in the FA Cup and Spurs are also in with a real chance of landing the EFL Cup this season after beating West Ham and Arsenal to reach the semis.

OK, so Mauricio Pochettino would have loved for his team to face Burton Albion rather than Chelsea, although they have avoided Manchester City at least, with Spurs strong favourites to win Tuesday’s first leg encounter.

Poch was able to rest several first-team players on Friday night, including Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen, with the London side putting seven past Tranmere and they have the memory of comfortably beating Chelsea too.

The Blues couldn’t live with a first-half onslaught when the teams met at Wembley, with Tottenham looking to blow their London rivals out of the water once again and it will be interesting to see whether Dele Alli is employed in a deeper-lying role or pushed further forward.

Chelsea have been slightly more erratic than their opponents this season and are less of a rounded team, with Eden Hazard largely making them tick and there are question marks over both forwards that come in and out of the first team.

We’ll keep the betting simple and go for Spurs to come through with a victory in this game at odds-against, with the Tottenham team superior to their opposite number at this moment in time.
