CHE vs TOT Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Chelsea will be looking to erase a 1-0 deficit from the first leg when they meet Tottenham Hotspur in the semifinal of the Carabao Cup at Stamford Bridge, in London, on Thursday night (IST).
The lowest points in Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea career has to be the 2-0 defeat at the Emirates Stadium against Arsenal. It was just not the case of losing out all three points against your main rivals, but the manner in which his team played in the first half, showing no or little fight in the second half as well, it’s a great cause of worry for all the Blues at the moment.
To make matter worse, Sarri looked sullen in his post-match briefing and questioned his players’ willingness and mental toughness. The football pundits were not happy with the way Sarri played his card in front of the whole world, and now everybody fears that his decision to open himself so much may come back to haunt him.
But the loss has opened a whole new dimension in the race for the top-4. Out of nowhere, Manchester United have come out of the blocks, and they are a worthy challenger as only three points separate the Red Devils and 3rd placed Chelsea.
But before Premier League resumes its actions in a fortnight, there is a small matter of 2nd leg Carabao Cup semifinal and a FA Cup fourth-round match against Sheffield Wednesday.
For Tottenham Hotspur, it’s all about how well Mauricio Pochettino and his squad cope in the absence of injured superstars. Nobody is going to question him or his squad after what has been quite successful campaign so far.

CHE vs TOT Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
The result in the last match shouldn’t hold for much when both these teams play at the Bridge. Chelsea were subpar and not like themselves for the most part in their chastening 0-2 loss at the Emirates Stadium against Arsenal. While Tottenham had to rely on their midfielders for goals at the weekend.
Spurs were out of color at Craven Cottage as well with Fernando Llorente failing to impress in the absence of both Harry Kane and Son Heung-min.
we think Chelsea will be too powerful here and back the Blues to win this game.
