Here’s wishing all Tottenham Hotspur fans a Very Happy New Year and a fortune filled 2022 – especially VS’ers (as you are the ones reading this!)
Having taken a late three points from Watford on New Year’s Day as Davinson Sanchez hit in injury time, Antonio Conte has a change of pace this midweek as our attention again diverts to our EFL Cup run.
Wednesday evening’s fixture sees us travel up to Stamford Bridge to take on Thomas Tuchel’s high flying Chelsea side and although we are nine points behind them in the table (we have two games in hand) there seems to be trouble brewing if £95million Romelu Lukaku’s recent barbs are anything to go off.
But we don’t need to concern ourselves with that, of more importance is our own performance on the day and as things stand we will again be without Steven Bergwijn, Cristian Romero and Ryan Sessegnon but whether or not that list grows over the next few days remains to be seen.
Whilst we’re still in touch with the upper end of the table, I can’t be alone in hoping for a proper Cup run this year and if we can boot Chelsea out odds move in our favour.
