Tottenham Hotspur vs Chelsea

Wembley Stadium will play as hosts as Chelsea takes on Tottenham Hotspur in the Semi-Finals of the Carabao Cup this Tuesday. These two sides have already met at Wembley Stadium in the Premier League and a strong display from Tottenham saw them ease to a 3-1 victory, Maurizio Sarri will be hoping for a much stronger performance from his side this time around. The hosts arrive in good form and have been a strong side for the majority of the season, their efforts have earned them a spot up in third place after 21 games played and remain the only side that is yet to draw a game. Chelsea sit just below Spurs in fourth place trailing by four points after they were held to a 0-0 draw by Southampton.

After already seeing off Chelsea this season at Wembley Stadium, Mauricio Pochettino will be hoping for another successful performance on Tuesday. Spurs arrive in strong form with them suffering just one loss from their last ten fixtures across all competitions. Their previous fixture saw them go up against Tranmere Rovers in the FA Cup who they brushed aside with a huge 7-0 win. With the home advantage and have already beaten Chelsea this season, Tottenham arrives as clear favourites with odds of 11/10 at Bet365 and SkyBet. The result between these two sides ended 3-1 to Spurs last time they met and SkyBet are offering 16/1 for a repeat result.

Spurs have been in great form in front of goal in recent games which have been crucial to their success this season. Over their last five games, they have racked up a huge 24 goals and four of those five games have seen over 3.5 goals. You can back there to be over 3.5 goals with Betway for a price of 2/1, or Tottenham to score 3+ goals at 10/3 with SkyBet. One player that continues to impress his Son Heung-Min who has been in unstoppable form. Over the last five games, he has bagged six goals and pitched in with five assists. Bet365 have him to score anytime at 21/10 which seems very generous considering his recent form.

Maurizio Sarri will be hoping for a better result than he experienced last time he went to Wembley Stadium, but he will need a much stronger performance from his side than they have been showing in recent games. After losing to Leicester City they had returned to winning ways with victories against Crystal Palace and Watford, but another woeful performance saw them draw 0-0 at home to Southampton. Their inconsistent form has them placed as the underdogs for this fixture with odds of 12/5 with SkyBet.

Although Chelsea have not been in the best of form, they continue to be defensively strong and over the last five games have kept three clean sheets. You can back them to keep another clean sheet with SkyBet with odds of 10/3. If the Blues are to see any success on Tuesday 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 nine assists this season and if you fancy him to add to his tally on Tuesday then back him on Betway to score anytime for a price of 21/10.
