League Cup: Spurs v Chelsea Bet
It's time for the league cup semi-finals, the one trophy big managers care about less than the FA cup. That said, if you find yourselves one step away from the finals, why not just give it your best shot and you get to win another trophy to add to the tally? Spurs have been in fine attacking form, with that last 7-0 win against Tranmere despite resting Harry Kane for a large bit of the match. Chelsea on the other hand are doing their best to keep matches tight, not scoring a lot of goals in the process either. In the last seven meetings between these two teams, both teams have scored six times with six matches finishing over 2.5 goals as well. Interestingly, Chelsea hasn't kept a clean sheet against Tottenham in their 7 encounters either. Would have thought it'd be the other way around. Spurs are missing Vertonghen who got injured against Tranmere. Expecting the Spurs defence to be not as tight without him. In the pre-match interview, Pochettino says that Spurs need to play 'naughty', whatever that means. I take it he won't be playing defensive football tonight, then? The opening lines look rather generous given the way this fixture has shaped up over the years as well as how Tottenham has had all 5/5 of their previous games ending O 2.5 goals. It's probably down to Chelsea being such a dour team in general with 5/6 of their last games finishing under. Fingers crossed there'll be open football tonight, though. Pick: Over 2.5 Goals @ 1.818
