Just one more game and all roads will lead to the final.
All is set for the second leg of the semi-final games of the EFL Cup set to go down this week. Four teams will be whittled down to two by the end of the week. And both teams will battle it out for a chance to win their first trophy of the season.
Chelsea welcomes an injury-ravaged Tottenham side to the Stamford Bridge. Spurs go into this one with a one-goal advantage from the first leg. But with all that has happened between that first leg and this return leg, Pochettino’s men head into this one as underdogs.
Harry Kane has been sidelined with an injury that leaves him out till March. Son is still in Asia representing South Korea. And just when they thought it couldn’t get worse, Dele Alli pulled out of the game against Fulham with what looked like a hamstring injury.
Chelsea is not perfect. Sarri still has to find a way to deal with players that are difficult to motivate. Eden Hazard is still being played out of position. Gonzalo Higuain might be on his way but questions remain over how quickly he’ll fit into the squad.

Tottenham will be hoping to continue their recent domination in this fixture. They’ve won three of the last five meetings between the two sides, scoring seven times and conceding just twice.
In the other fixture, Manchester City will travel to Burton in a game that most folks think is unnecessary. Burton Albion lost the first leg by a whopping nine goals.

The goal is simple:
- Score 10 goals against a side that has the second-best defence in the Premier League
- Shut out a side that has scored over 20+ goals more than any other side in England
Surely, no one is expecting a comeback. That’s why they’ve been priced at 13.75 to win on NairaBET. The result from the first leg makes this one difficult to call. The Citizens know they’re very well in the final.
Which players will Pep Guardiola use in this fixture? Will the players take this game serious enough to bang in as many goals as they can? Will Burton come out to play or will they just feature in this game to pass time?
