John Terry has wished Chelsea ‘good luck’ ahead of their EFL Cup semi-final showdown against Tottenham, as he posted on Instagram.
The former centre-back stated that ‘it doesn’t come much better than beating your London rivals in the final and scoring’, as he made reference to Chelsea beating Spurs in the 2015 final.
Whilst that game was at Wembley, this is the first-leg clash at Stamford Bridge, with a certain Antonio Conte returning to his former club.
Conte won the Premier League title and the FA Cup in Chelsea colours and he will be hoping to win something at Spurs.
But, at this moment in time, Thomas Tuchel and his men stand in his way of getting his career with the Lilywhites off to a very special start.
This is what Terry posted on Instagram ahead of that all-action London affair at the Bridge tonight.
“It doesn’t come much better than beating your London rivals in the final and scoring,” said Terry. “Good luck tonight boys.”
The build-up to this game has been marred by the drama surrounding Romelu Lukaku’s forthright interview with Sky Italia.
The comments from the Belgian didn’t go down well with those inside Chelsea and he was dropped by Thomas Tuchel for their 2-2 draw against Liverpool over the weekend.
But he will be back in action tonight and Spurs might just get a very aggressive Lukaku that has something to prove.
Either way, Conte’s men come into this game in serious form because they haven’t been beaten in the Premier League since he has taken charge.
