Spurs vs Chelsea prediction & betting tips brought to you by football expert Ryan Elliott, including an 18/5 shot.
Tottenham vs Chelsea - Carabao Cup - 19:45
Entertainment expected as both managers likely to ring the changes:
- Chelsea have won four of their last six matches against Spurs.
- Spurs have failed to score in their last two home games against Chelsea.
- This will be Spurs' third game in six days.
TIP: Steven Bergwijn to score
It’s hard to keep up with all this football, as Spurs and Chelsea dust themselves down after their dramatic draws over the weekend to face-off in the Carabao Cup.
Jose Mourinho will be seething after their late penalty concession against Newcastle, and with this being Spurs’ third game in six days, you can expect him to ring a few changes. That said, he’ll be desperate to win a trophy with the North London side, so he’ll certainly not be playing the kids.
As for Chelsea, they have slightly deeper reserves than Tottenham, but I still imagine Frank Lampard will make a swathe of changes for this one.
It’s always really hard to find value in coin-tosses such as this, but Steven Bergwijn to score at any time, priced at 18/5 definitely appeals. The Dutch forward is almost guaranteed to start when you look at Son Heung-Min and Harry Kane’s recent workload, and considering Chelsea have kept one away clean sheet in the Premier League since the start of last season, Bergwijn will be licking his lips.
