Betting Preview: Chelsea vs Tottenham: Draw Likely Outcome



chelsea vs tottenham fa cup

Chelsea can bounce back from their event-filled Carabao Cup defeat at the hands of Manchester City when they face London rivals Tottenham Hotspur in their second meeting in the Premier League this season.

The Carabao Cup defeat to the Citizens on Sunday was overshadowed by the conduct of Spanish goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga who refused to come off when Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri made the call for Willy Caballero to replace him in goal towards the end of extra time.

Manchester City defeated Chelsea 4-3 on penalties with Kepa in goal.

Regulation time and extra time between both teams had ended in a goalless draw thus prompting the need for the dreaded penalty shootout.

It remains to be seen whether Sarri will start Kepa in goal against Spurs in their league meeting scheduled for Stamford Bridge tomorrow though it must be said that the shot stopper has apologised for his conduct.

Their opponents Tottenham Hotspur have problems of their own after manager Mauricio Pochettino clashed with referee Mike Dean at the end of the 2-1 loss at Burnley at the weekend.

Spurs have won just once away to Chelsea in the Premier League era.

Bet9ja is offering odds of 2.32 for a Chelsea victory and 3.15 for an unlikely away win for Tottenham.

Odds of 3.35 for a draw between the two London clubs
