Chelsea will try to dispel their depressed mood after a defeat in League Cup final match with Manchester City on Sunday, when they meet Tottenham, their main rival, at Stamford Bridge on February 27.
Raheem Sterling’s winning penalty deprived Sarri a hope for winning his first final as the Blues manager, but an unexpected skirmish with a Chelsea’s rebellious goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga stole the sports headlines.
Their previous bout of Chelsea and Tottenham took place under the League Cup in January and ended with a 2-1 score in favor of Chelsea, although the outcome of the game at Wembley, when Tottenham’s pragmatic style allowed them to obtain a dry victory with a score of 1-0 should be also mentioned.
