Tottenham v Chelsea prediction and betting, stats, odds. In the English League Cup match on January 12, Spurs take on the formidable Pensioners. Who is worthy of reaching the final of the tournament? – The answer is in our predictions.
Tottenham are still in search of a game this season. Modest results last season allowed Spurs to cling to a place in the Conference League, where they had a chance to make the playoffs. But a coronavirus intervened in the last round, denying the team the chance to play against Rennes, which left the Metropolitan out of the new tournament from UEFA.
On their way to the League Cup semi-finals, Spurs beat West Ham 2-1. They also got off to a good start in the FA Cup, where they stood no chance against lowly Moorcamp (3-1).
Not everything went smoothly for Antonio Conte’s charges in the English league, where after 18 stages the team have 10 victories and three peaceful outcomes, which brought them 33 points and the sixth position in the standings. Very modest are the team’s offensive performances, which have featured just 23 times.
In the last two rounds, the Bilo-Syni drew 1-1 with Southampton and drew 1-0 with Watford on January 1.
Bergwein, Son Heung-min and Romero will not be available tonight, as the Argentine has a thigh injury.
On their way to the semi-finals, Chelsea beat a tough Southampton FC and put up a good fight in the first leg.
Thomas Tuchel’s side took control of the ball with a huge statistical advantage – 19 shots for the Blues compared to five for Spurs. However, apart from Havertz’s goal in the fifth minute, the Hotspurs scored the second goal of the game themselves – it was Davies.
The team made a good start in the FA Cup, easily beating Chesterfield (5-1). In the English league, the Pensioners recorded 12 wins and seven draws, which brought them 43 points and second place in the table. On 26 December, the visitors overcame Aston Villa (3-1), after which they drew twice – with Brighton (1-1) and Liverpool (2-2).
We cannot fail to mention the team’s third best-performing attacking performance in the league, which featured 45 times.
Kante, James, Mendy, Chalobah, Chilwell and Silva, who has a coronavirus, cannot play today.
The first leg of the English League Cup semi-final showed the strength of Chelsea, who managed to take control of the ball and easily imposed their game. The hosts have a chance tonight, but it is very small, especially as Antonio Conte’s charges will not have enough strength or experience to hold off the Pensioners in this state. We assume that the visitors can play second-string, while taking their chances on the counterattack.
