Tottenham Hotspur v Chelsea – Carabao Cup Round 4
Tuesday sees Chelsea’s first London derby of the season – and it comes under the strangest of circumstances.
The Blues’ opponent was decided by a bye in this unusual pandemic-hit season. Leyton Orient forfeited their place in the Carabao Cup after players and staff tested positive for coronavirus. The walkover awarded to their scheduled opponents Tottenham sets up a last-16 capital showdown at their stadium. We’re playing for a place in the last eight after we eased past Barnsley 6–0 last week in round three.
Boss Frank Lampard is likely to rotate his squad again and start fringe players with this one-off tie sandwiched between two Premier League games. Spurs too are likely to make changes, as they face three matches in three different competitions in the space of five days. Let’s hope that works to our advantage.
Tune in this Tuesday to cheer on the Blues!
