Chelsea to win 2-1
Chelsea v Tottenham
Chelsea recovered well to get the draw against Liverpool, thanks to two brilliant goals. Mateo Kovacic’s in particular was exceptional! Ultimately, it was two points dropped which makes their chances of winning the league unlikely.
That could be a good thing for them in the cup competitions though. Chelsea showed last season that they are so strong in the cups, particularly when they are the club’s primary focus. This won’t be an easy tie; Antonio Conte will be really up for this, and Spurs are desperate to end their long trophy drought.
I think Chelsea will get the win in this EFL Cup first leg. I don’t see much in it but I’m going for 2-1 to the Blues.
