Chelsea vs Tottenham by TFB

Chelsea
VS
Tottenham
The 2015 League Cup final sees a London derby take place at the Wembley Stadium. Premier League leaders Chelsea will play Tottenham Hotspur for the first silverware of the season.

 

Chelsea come into this final in good shape being 5 points clear at the top of the table and firmly still on for the treble. They are currently unbeaten in 6 matches in all competitions since their shock 4-2 FA Cup defeat to Bradford City. That loss will have no relevance on this match.

 

Nemanja Matic will be missing for the Blues after his sending off against Burnley last week. As will John Obi Mikel who is missing through injury. Ramires is favourite to start in Matic's place. Mourinho's main selection headache is whether to play Cahill or Zouma in defence with the latter putting in some impressive performances of late.

 

Tottenham are 1 of only 3 teams to beat Chelsea this season with an entertaining 5-3 victory at White Hart Lane. However, Chelsea won the Stamford Bridge encounter pretty comfortably with a 3-0 victory late last year. Recently though Spurs have struggled and are currently winless in 4 after their elimination from the Europa League in mid week with a disappointing 2-0 loss to Fiorentina. Their journey to Italy was only 3 days ago so it remains to be seen whether this will have an effect on some of their players.

 

Tottenham will have a full squad to pick from which means Harry Kane will likely start up front after being rested midweek. Pochettino has played goalkeeper Michel Vorm in every round of this cup so far but with regular keeper Lloris fit i would imagine he will start with his best 11.

 

Chelsea generally win when they need to so i see them as big favourites here.
