Two teams that had disappointing weekends in the Premier League lock horns in the midweek EFL Cup fixture. Tottenham plays host Chelsea at the New Tottenham Stadium. The match schedules for Tuesday with kickoff at 9:45 pm.
Mourinho will have to contend with playing three games in one week. Both sides will be hoping for a place in the fifth round of the competition. It remains a London Derby with both sides keen on shaking disappointing results.
The Chosen One left the stadium cursing the VAR decision that handed Newcastle a penalty in the game’s dying minutes. The side led the game with one goal courtesy of Lucas Moura. A perfect penalty converted by Callum Wilson was enough for both sides to share the spoils.
On the other side of London, Lampard was left rooted to the ground after three early goals for West Brom rendered him speechless. A lot of expectations remain of Lampard after a massive summer spending. The match ended 3-3, with both sides sharing spoils, but Chelsea showed defensive weaknesses from last season.
Lampard holds an unsatisfactory record with away wins with only one in their last 15 Premier League games. The performance of the side came through the 6-0 win over Barnsley. The match is reminiscent of the 2008 final of the competition.
