There will be fireworks when Chelsea vs Tottenham face each other in the EFL Cup semis on Wednesday evening.
The Blues came from two goals behind to share the spoils with Liverpool at the weekend, with both Kovacic and Pulisic scoring beautiful goals.
Romelu Lukaku should miss the EFL Cup clash due to coach’s decision, while Edouard Mendy is with Senegal for the Africa Cup of Nations.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek is a major doubt, while all Reece James, Ben Chillwell, Timo Werner, and Andreas Christensen should miss out. Spurs showed character in a 1-0 win over Watford, with Davinson Sanchez scoring a late winner at Vicarage Road.
Considering that Tottenham have been producing fine displays under new boss Antonio Conte, we are tempted to put our money on draw.
Both Cristian Romero and Ryan Sessegnon remain on the sidelines, but Conte has no other selection worries ahead of the local derby.
