Chelsea v Tottenham

Chelsea face Tottenham in the first leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final tie in turbulent fashion.

The Blues’ form has mellowed in recent weeks with four draws in their last five Premier League outings putting them 10 points behind league leaders Manchester City.

Thomas Tuchel has plenty of big calls to make in the weeks to come, none more pressing than resolving the future of £100m man Romelu Lukaku, whose recent quotes in the press saw him dropped for the match against Liverpool.

By contrast, Tottenham have settled into the Antonio Conte way of life superbly. They are undefeated in the Italian’s eight Premier League matches in charge at the club.

Spurs have rocketed into top four contention, but filling their dusty trophy cabinet is at the forefront of Conte’s mind right now. Lifting the Carabao Cup this season would mark a big signal of intent.

Our prediction: Chelsea v Tottenham

Chelsea are rocking, there’s no doubt about that. Thomas Tuchel has left previous jobs following off-field matters, and while this is a different set of circumstances, he must prove he can weather storms and rediscover form.

However, the Carabao Cup is low down on Tuchel’s list of priorities as he fights to muscle back into the Premier League title race and continue the Blues’ Champions League defence.

Spurs don’t share those same priorities. They’re out of Europe and unexpectedly find themselves in contention for the top four. The Carabao Cup should be a big aim for them in 2021/22 and that incentive of silverware should see them take an advantage into the second leg.

Our prediction: Chelsea 1-2 Tottenham (12/1 at bet365).
