Chelsea Will Attempt To Dethrone Champions City
Chelsea set up an EFL Cup final showdown with Manchester City on February 24th in Wembley after fending off Tottenham in their London Derby semi-final at Stamford Bridge.
Tottenham went into the semi-final with the upper hand having won the first-leg 1-0, but first half goals from N’Golo Kante and Eden Hazard put Chelsea in front in the tie.
Fernando Llorente’s header in the 50th minute saw Tottenham draw level on aggregate and penalties ensue.
Maurizio Sarri’s men prevailed 4-2 on penalties and will go into the final 6/4 to overcome defending champions City, having shortened in from 5/1.
It was a different journey to the final for Manchester City whose 1-0 win over Burton Albion secured a 10-0 aggregate triumph over the two legs. Pep Guardiola’s side have only ever been in the final once where they didn’t lift the trophy and see red hot odds of 1/2 to claim back to back wins in the League Cup.
