- Title : VIP Betting Tip Tottenham vs. Chelsea – EFL Cup
A week ago, the Blues set the course for the final with a 2-0 win against Spurs. On Wednesday evening, it is now time to take advantage of the good starting position in the semi-final second leg of the EFL Cup. Even in the event of a possible defeat, Chelsea can still move into the final of the League Cup on their own.
Because the Blues dominated the first leg at will, it doesn't seem surprising that CFC head coach Thomas Tuchel's team is also favored in the semi-final second leg against Spurs. At the moment, Tottenham vs. Chelsea only offers odds of 3.10 for Chelsea to win 1HT. Betting on it is - at least based on the recent record of Chelsea - obvious.
The Blues are heading for the first trophy of the calendar year. After the comfortable home win last week, the Blues' finals - at least in the recent record against the Spurs - is probably only a matter of form. This would be the sixth time in a row that Chelsea would be represented in one of the two cup competitions - FA Cup or EFL Cup - in the final.
If you consider how strong Thomas Tuchel's team has presented itself in the past few weeks, it cannot be ruled out that Chelsea will also win the semi-final second leg. Since losing to West Ham less than a month ago, the Blues have not lost any of their last ten competitive games.
Overall, the Londoners have a record of 5-5-0 in the last ten matches. Two of the five wins were in the last two competitive games, including the runaway win against Chesterfield last weekend. The Blues are now tackling the second leg in the EFL Cup with a broad chest.
Again a clean slate against the Spurs?
Chelsea have remained undefeated in the last nine city derbies against Spurs in regular time. The performances in the last four derbies were particularly commendable, after all, the Blues kept the clean slate in the last four matches with Tottenham. It is quite possible that this series will be continued this time as well.
The statistics in the House of Lords already show how strong the defensive bulwark of the Blues is. Behind the leaders from Manchester, Chelsea have the second best defense in the Premier League with only 16 goals conceded in 21 match days. The defensive bulwark in London shone especially in the away games.
Across all competitions, Chelsea have even conceded six of the last ten away games. Although some key players - a total of six players will miss the Cup game - in the ranks of the Blues have to take a break from the Cup game due to injury, Chelsea still have enough quality in the back team to defy the Spurs offensive.
Expected formation of Chelsea:
Kepa - Azpilicueta, Rüdiger, Sarr - Ziyech, Jorginho, Kovacic, Alonso - Mount, Havertz - Lukaku
