The eighth final of the League Cup will start tonight (Tuesday) in about an hour (21:40, live broadcast in Sports1) A fascinating game between Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham and Chelsea. Although both teams suffer from congestion when the Spurs head with the game against Maccabi Haifa in the Europa League playoffs on Thursday, and Chelsea are also in a marathon of games, but neither team wants to lose the first title this season and both have very deep rosters. The Blues, by the way, have beaten the Roosters in all four of their last encounters.
Chelsea defeated Barnsley 0: 6 in the previous stage with a three-pointer by Kai Habertz, and on Saturday ended in a dramatic 3: 3 draw against West Bromwich Albion when they managed to come back from a three-goal deficit (Tami Avraham with the dramatic goal). At the professional level, the highlight is the debut of new goalkeeper Edward Mandy developed between the posts. Ben Chillwell was developed in the lineup for the first time. Timo Werner opened alongside Olivier Giroud in the lead. Angulo Canta on the bench.
Tottenham finished in a disappointing 1-1 draw against Newcastle in the league and are mainly focused on the meeting against Maccabi Haifa this coming Thursday at home. Although it qualified for the quarter-finals of the League Cup automatically in light of the Corona blow to Layton, Jose Mourinho’s team is suffering from a crazy load as they have already played five games in two and a half weeks. As expected, the Spurs are in a relatively secondary lineup. Gareth Bale is injured and so is Young Min Son. Della Ali who has not played recently – out of the squad and maybe out of his way at the club. Stephen Brahwin and Eric Lamela will come on the attack, with Mourinho opening with a three-brake line-up. Premiere of Sergio Regilon in the left-back position.
Tottenham: Hugo Loris, Serge Oriya, Toby Alderwild, Eric Dyer, Jeff Tanganga, Sergio Regilon, Tangi Endombela, Gadson Fernandez, Musa Sissoko, Eric Lamela, Stephen Brahwin.
Chelsea: Edward Mandy, Cesar Espiliquata, Pikayo Tumori, Kurt Zuma, Ben Chilwell, Giorgini, Mateo Kovacic, Mason Mount, Callum Hudson-Audrey, Timo Werner, Olivier Giroud.
