In theory, the London derby between Chelsea and Tottenham is of course a remarkable match in the 2021-22 Carabao Cup semi-finals. But with the home team Chelsea having disappointing results in the English Premier League, this could be a bleak derby for the fans of the Stamford Bridge home team .
With Chelsea, after a long time of stable competition, they suddenly performed poorly in the last 4/6 matches in the English Premier League. After an embarrassing 2-3 loss away from West Ham United, coach Thomas Tuchel’s teachers and students continued to be held to a draw in the next 3/5 rounds and recently a 1-1 draw in the reception against Brighton in the middle. last week.
Entering the match against Tottenham in the Carabao Cup at dawn this Thursday, Chelsea will not have the service of two pillars in the defense, defenders Ben Chilwell and Reece James. In addition, the Blues’ motivation in this match is also questioned by a rather large question mark. Next weekend, the Stamford Bridge team will have an extremely important match against Manchester City in the Premier League, so it is impossible not to take into account that they will both kick and keep. Therefore, the derby in the middle of this week is difficult to determine the winner or loser in the official 90 minutes.
Under the guidance of Antonio Conte, Tottenham not only improved their performance but also started playing better. In 7 matches under the direction of the Italian strategist since the beginning of December, the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium team has won 5 victories, drawn 2 and received no defeat. Worth mentioning, the last 3 matches, Spurs won 2 matches and scored 6 goals. And immediately the support of the fans showed signs of increasing with Antonio Conte.
Obviously, the motivation placed on this strategist’s shoulder is great. In that favorable context, Tottenham received the news that couldn’t be happier. It is the return of some pillars and in particular, the appearance of Harry Kane and Son Heung-min will help Spurs solve the scoring task, because this duo are capable of creating high mutations thanks to Technical and intelligent gameplay.
