The Blues will be hoping to win the trophy again after a very long time. The last time they won it was in 2015. Chelsea saw off Brentford to emerge one of the standing four to win the trophy.
Tuchel's men exhibited why they are still considered title favourites after a deserving comeback against Liverpool. After two quick goals from the Reds, Chelsea looked lost in all departments before Kovacic gave the home team a lifeline after scoring one of the best goals this season before Christian Pulisic levelled before halftime, the game ended in stalemate.
The Blues performance in this tournament isn't encouraging, their win against Southampton and Aston Villa was through penalties with only a full-time win against Brentford.
If the Blues are to get anything from this match they need not be clumsy because Tottenham are out to end their trophyless spell.
Kepa Arrizabalaga will be in goal for the home team after the departure of Mendy for the AFCON tournament. Lukaku might start upfront for the blues after apologizing for the statement uttered in his recent interview.

After a tough battle against a determined Watford, the team will need to be more ruthless in front of the goal. Thank God for the last-minute goal from Davinson Sanchez, the defender gave the away team hope after the match seemed to be ending in a stalemate.
