Tottenham vs Chelsea is the big EFL cup game on Tuesday 29 September, in what is the latest installment of this London derby. Both teams will be disappointed by their starts to the season. Tottenham have sandwiched an away win at Southampton between a home defeat to Everton and a draw at Newcastle at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Chelsea have also stumbled after an opening away win at Brighton, losing at home to Liverpool before drawing away at West Brom. At least Chelsea showed plenty of spirit to fightback from 3-0 down against the Baggies, and a Chelsea win is our tip for Tottenham vs Chelsea.
Tottenham exited last year’s EFL Cup at this stage last season, losing to lowly Colchester on penalties. Admittedly, this is the first chance for Mourinho to try and win this trophy for Tottenham, and he has won it three times for Chelsea and once for Manchester United. But Tottenham are already heavily involved in Europa League qualifying and may not take the competition too seriously.
Chelsea last won the EFL Cup in 2015 but made the final in 2019, where they were beaten by Manchester United, while the Blues also exited last year’s competition at the hands of the Red Devils. But Lampard fielded a decent team in this season’s opening 6-0 win over Barnsley, which suggests Chelsea see this competition as a genuine chance to pick up some silverware.
But what makes a Chelsea win look an excellent bet is Chelsea’s recent record against Tottenham. They’ve on their last four against them and, while the first of those two matches didn’t involve either of the present managers, Lampard got the better of his former manager Mourinho in both their Premier League games last season. Tottenham did suffer a red card when losing 0-2 at home to Chelsea last season but Son’s sending off came after Chelsea were already 2-0 up.
Lampard may not have got the best out of his £200 million signings yet, but he can start here by landing our Tottenham vs Chelsea tip of a Chelsea win.
