Chelsea will take on Tottenham in a second leg of their semi-final clash in the EFL cup. The Spurs hold a one goal lead, but will it be enough, as they have to do without their top scorers this time out. The Blues lost in the weekend to Arsenal in another London derby and have now drew blanks in their last two outings against top 6 sides. Gonzalo Higuan is expected to join this month and ease the pressure on the strikers Morata and Giroud whose performances are below par all season long, while Callum Hudson-Odoi is expected to remain with the Blues, despite the numerous efforts from Bayern Munich to steal the young talent.

Tottenham have been impressive away from home recently, as they have kept 3 cleans sheets and scored 20 goals in their last five visits.
