EFL Cup : Spurs vs CFC

Tottenham is going through a terrible schedule, with 3 matches packed in 5 days.  They started with an unfortunate draw against Newcastle on September 27.  The second match in Spurs' five-day series was the encounter with Chelsea in the fourth round of the League Cup.

The match between Tottenham and Chelsea is the opening match of the fourth round of the League Cup.  Both London representatives will enter the London derby together to win the first ticket to the quarterfinals.

The last round in the Premier League saw Tottenham and Chelsea have to accept a common disappointment when they could not win all 3 points against weaker opponents.  Because of that, a victory in the League Cup will help 1 of the 2 teams forget the disappointing results last weekend.

 Back in the League Cup, Tottenham is probably the luckiest team when they don't have to play but still go on.  The reason was that the rival Leyton Orient was lost because there were too many Covid-19 positive personnel.  However, that luck is not enough to alleviate fatigue because of the intense schedule for teachers and students Mourinho.

Just after the derby promised "scratches" with the Chelsea team, Tottenham immediately entered an important play-off with Maccabi Haifa.  This match will decide the ticket to go directly to the Europa League table of Rooster.

In the past, Tottenham had a bad record against Chelsea.  In the last 5 matches in all competitions, Tottenham has only had a single victory.  The remaining 4 matches they lost.

In the League Cup, the last confrontation in the 2018/2019 season was also a sad memory for Tottenham when they were eliminated in the semi-finals by Chelsea.  This is a confrontation that Tottenham won at Tottenham Stadium in the first leg, but the goals of Kante and Eden Hazard in the second leg put both teams in a fateful penalty shootout.
