It is time for the EFL Cup! Chelsea takes on Tottenham in the first leg of the clash at Stamford Bridge. The game is set to start at 19:45 GMT 0.

Lukaku out of Squad

It seems that Chelsea has not been in top form recently as the team is failing to impress. However, the name of the club has been more related to the scandalous interview of Romelu Lukaku in the past few days. The striker has been removed from the squad and it remains unclear where the player will be given another chance. It is unlikely to see Lukaku playing tonight against Tottenham.

Excellent Start

The start of Antonio Conte at Tottenham is promising. In fact, it is one of the best starts of any Premier League manager appointed at a new club. The ideas of the Italian seem to be well accepted by the players and the good results had not been late. It is expected that the manager will make some changes for the upcoming match.

Our Verdict

As the rules of EFL Cup includes another game between both teams, perhaps either Chelsea or Tottenham will be quite cautious for the first game. Our tipsters predict that Chelsea will not lose the 1st leg and there won’t be plenty of goals either.
