Chelsea vs Tottenham Hotspur

Chelsea returns to Stamford Bridge this Thursday looking to overcome a one-goal deficit against Tottenham Hotspur in the Semi-Finals of the Carabao Cup. Chelsea dominated the first leg between these sides with them creating the majority of the chances, but they were beaten by a single goal scored from the penalty spot. Mauricio Pochettino will be glad to have secured a win in the first leg as with the absence of Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min, their side is much weaker. Only four points separate the two sides in the Premier League and this meeting should prove to be another close game of football.

Losing to Tottenham Hotspur in the Carabao Cup marked Chelsea’s second defeat of the season against their City rivals, following their first defeat in the league. Maurizio Sarri will be desperate to secure a win on Thursday to stay in the competition and to keep his sides pride intact. However, Chelsea arrives at this fixture off the back of a disappointing loss to Arsenal in the league who eased to a 2-0 victory. With the home advantage and Tottenham’s missing players, Chelsea arrives as clear favourites for this fixture, with odds of 8/13 at SkyBet.

If the Blues are to see any success on Thursday and come back from their 1-0 loss in the first leg, then they will need a big performance from Eden Hazard who has been their key player once again this season. The forward has 12 goals and ten assists this season and if you fancy him to add to his tally on Thursday then back him on Betway to score anytime for a price of 5/4. Four of Chelsea’s last five games have seen the result finish with under 2.5 goals and Bet365 are offering 3/1 for there to be under 2.5 goals scored in this fixture.

After already seeing off their opponents twice this season, Mauricio Pochettino will be hoping for another successful performance on Thursday and see his side move onto the Finals of the Carabao cup. Tottenham managed to scrape three points in their last match against Fulham thanks to a stoppage-time winner from Harry Winks. With a full squad Spurs would be favourites to secure the win in this fixture, but with Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min missing they are much stronger and arrive as underdogs. Bet365 are offering odds of 9/2 for Spurs to win.

The North London side clinched a 1-0 win in the first leg against Chelsea and if you fancy a repeat result this Thursday then SkyBet is offering odds of 14/1. Spurs have managed to keep clean sheets in three of their last four wins and with their opponents not scoring many goals in recent games may be able to keep another clean sheet in this fixture. SkyBet has them to keep a clean sheet priced at 9/2.
