Tottenham and Chelsea will meet in the 4th round of the EFL Cup in a match played at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Some might be surprised that Tottenham is trading at such big betting odds to win this London derby EFL Cup clash against Chelsea. However, the plain fact is they already have an overloaded fixture schedule, which will see them clash with Maccabi Haifa two days later before a trip to Old Trafford on Sunday.

Reason for Tottenham vs Chelsea Predictions
The schedule is congested, and Jose Mourinho will therefore show a weakened side for this clash, as there really is no alternative due to the way the 2019/20 season lasts. Tottenham doesn’t play consistently, and they will have to improve their form. There are likely to be starting berths afforded to Joe Hart, Sergio Reguilon, and Moussa Sissoko, although we are also likely to see some youngsters taking to the field. Reguilon came as a significant reinforcement and could make his debut in this match. Tottenham Hotspur goes into this match following on from a 1-1 Premier League draw against Newcastle United. They had their chances not taken, and the hosts conceded a goal in the 97th minute. Spurs have not been the best at stopping their opponents of late, although they have also found ways to convert their own chances into goals. Over their last six matches, Spurs have seen their goal breached in six of them in addition to getting on the scoresheet in five of those games. Japhet Tanganga (Thigh Muscle Strain) and Gareth Bale (Knee Problems) won’t be playing for Spurs boss José Mourinho.
The Blues beat Barnsley 6-0 at half time last week. In the match against WBA, they were three goals behind at the half time. In the other 45, they managed to reach one point. Mason Mount, Hudson Odoi, and Tammy Abraham scored the goals. Kepa will go on loan, we will see in which club, they trusted the Spaniard a lot, but he made cheap mistakes that cost him the place in the squad. Simultaneously, Jorginho, Ross Barkley, and Olivier Giroud should all take their places in the starting line-up. Mason Mount finally shows why he was brought in as a great reinforcement. Giroud is a great striker useful for the team, and he brought a lot of points by entering from the bench last season. Frank Lampard has great confidence in the Frenchman. The head coach seeks responsibility in every game, no matter who the opponent is, and the players have to do their best. Ben Chilwell (Foot Injury), Abdul Rahman Baba (Knee Injury), Marco van Ginkel (Knee Injury), and Christian Pulisic (Hamstring Injury) will be unavailable for this match.
It is going to be a great battle between these two teams, and it won’t be surprising if the game ends in a draw. Also, both sides have been very efficient lately, and we should expect to see goals in both nets.
