Chelsea face Tottenham Hotspur this week in a game that follows on from their epic exertions in the Carabao Cup final.
Maurizio Sarri’s side lost to Manchester City on penalties after a 0-0 draw across 120 minutes.
They have just three days rest before welcoming Spurs to Stamford Bridge on Wednesday in a game that could be decisive for both clubs.
Maurizio Sarri’s men are still outside of the top four and are battling to overhaul both Manchester United and Arsenal, while Spurs need to regain a foothold in the Premier League title race after losing to Burnley at Turf Moor on Saturday.
The two sides have met three times already this season, with Spurs winning twice – in the league and the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg at Wembley, though they were beaten in the second leg and ultimately exited the competition on penalties.
And Spurs fans are delighted that Chelsea have been forced to run the gamut of extra time ahead of this week’s encounter, seemingly believing it will be a key boost for their side.
