Chelsea vs Tottenham Preview and Livestream
Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea were on an impressive run early in the campaign and with the addition of the supposed ‘missing piece’ in the form of Romelu Lukaku, they looked set to seriously challenge on all fronts. However, the Belgian has faded away since and so have Chelsea, sitting a disappointing 10 points off top spot in the league at the midway point of the season.
A lot of close results have not gone the way of the Blues in recent times. The loss of key players to injury and COVID has dealt further blows to their hopes. The Champions League and EFL Cup look to be the only trophies realistically achievable this season for the Londoners and a big lead from the first leg against Tottenham will go a long way towards adding the latter to their cabinet.
Tottenham, on the other hand, have looked resolute and purposeful ever since Italian coach Conte took charge. Harry Kane slowly rediscovering his form is a big relief for Spurs fans who would also love any sort of trophy soon.
Chelsea vs Tottenham kicks off at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday 5th January, 2022 at 7:45 PM GMT. This means that the game kicks off at 12:45 PM EST and 9:45 AM PST on the same day- 5th January. The fans in India will see the game begin at 1:15 AM IST on 6th January, 2022.
The match will be broadcast live on Sky Sports and Quest channels in the United Kingdom. The telecasting rights of the English Football League Cup in the USA lies with the ESPN Network. The fans in India would be watching the game in the Voot Entertainment Network, while Jio TV and Colors Infinity are the other options to watch this game.
Chelsea Team News vs Tottenham
Injuries and COVID: Chelsea are the victims of bad luck in the form of the ACL injury to Ben Chilwell, who is ruled out for the season, with Chelsea now keenly targeting a replacement in Everton’s Lucas Digne. Timo Werner and Lewis Baker are still out with COVID-19, face a race to fitness to make a comeback.
Suspensions: Romelu Lukaku was left out of Chelsea’s last matchday squad by Tuchel owing to a controversial interview the Belgian gave, so it remains to be seen whether he will be included this time around.
