Chelsea won the Club World Cup. And the Blues' triumph in the tournament has not slowed them down. First, Thomas Tuchel's men could beat Crystal Palace 1:0, and then, this week, they beat French side Lille in the opening leg of the UEFA Champions League last 16. In such a way, Chelsea has not lost since the beginning of January.
As for the League Cup, it was a shaky start. The first two games against Aston Villa and Southampton ended in victory only on penalties. Then, they beat Brentford 2:0 and Antonio Conte's Tottenham 3:0 in a two-match clash. Chelsea should be well placed to take their third title of the season.
Tottenham is a team of contrasts. They can snatch victory over Manchester City in the final minutes (3:2). Spurs can also lose on the spot, as they did against Southampton, Wolverhampton, and Burnley not long ago. In total, three defeats in their last five games and only seventh place in the standings. As for the FA Cup, Antonio Conte's side beat Brighton 3:1 in the previous round.
