In an all-Premier League EFL Cup showdown on Tuesday night, Tottenham will play host to bitter London rivals Chelsea from behind closed doors in midweek.

Likely to still be reeling from what was more last-gasp VAR controversy over the weekend, Spurs eventually had to settle for a point on home soil and the Lilywhites will be desperate to put Sunday’s frustrations behind them.

On the flip side, while Chelsea might have also managed to salvage what appeared to be an unlikely point away at top-flight returners West Brom on Saturday evening, it doesn’t cover what was another inconsistent display by the Blues.

Despite their continued issues at the back, Tuesday’s guests should be boosted by what is a very impressive record against their crosstown rivals.

Including landing a 2-1 win when the two sides faced off back in February, Chelsea have won each of their last four straight meetings against Spurs and a similar outcome in midweek can be found priced at 13/10 with 888sport.

VAR heartbreak for Spurs

Despite dominating large spells of proceedings against Newcastle on Sunday afternoon and carving out a string of golden opportunities in North London, Jose Mourinho was left rightfully furious by Eric Dier’s controversial injury-time handball.

Watching the Magpies leave with what was a hugely flattering point over the weekend, the former Manchester United boss has seen his squad land just a single victory from their opening three Premier League appearances so far.

While Tuesday’s hosts might have managed to extend on their European adventure on foreign soil last week, fans around the North London know that their side must find some much-needed stability at the back if they’re to end their long-awaited search for a piece of silverware.

Watching Callum Wilson convert that highly-controversial spot kick over the weekend, Spurs are yet to record a single clean sheet across any competition since opening the 2020/2021 campaign and it is no secret Mourinho is desperate to add to his defensive options before the window slams shut next month.

A tale of two halves for Chelsea

Although Tammy Abraham’s 93rd-minute strike helped Chelsea complete what was a stunning turnaround at the Hawthorns on Saturday evening, Frank Lampard was left hugely concerned by his side’s horror show in the first-half.

Astonishingly falling 3-0 down away at Premier League returners West Brom heading into the break, the Blues also managed to extend on what has been a remarkable away day record while under the former England midfielder.

Shipping a trio of strikes against the Baggies over the weekend, the former champions have managed to land just a single clean sheet while away from Stamford Bridge in any of their last 21 matchups outside of West London.

With a real reputation for their high-scoring encounters, much like last season, Lampard’s youngsters have seen their last two appearances produce a staggering 12 goals.
