A Carabao Final berth against defending champions Manchester City awaits the winner of Thursday’s Carabao Semi Final clash between London rivals Chelsea and Tottenham, with Tottenham holding a slender 1 goal lead. This will be the third meeting between both sides this season, Spurs have won both meetings at Wembley. But they face a different task at Stamford Bridge, with an injury ravaged front line making it even more difficult.
Tottenham got back to winning ways with a late 2-1 win at Fulham on Sunday. Spurs have won their last three meetings with Chelsea.
The Blues come into this clash on the back of a disappointing 2-0 defeat at Arsenal and have lost two of their last three.
Chelsea will hope home advantage and a Spurs side missing key players will play a part here.
With Chelsea struggling to score against a porous Arsenal side, we expect the struggle to continue against Tottenham’s back 5 and Tottenham also playing it safe on the counter.
With these in mind we are backing a low scoring match.
Prediction: Chelsea 1 – 0 Tottenham
