Chelsea beat Tottenham 3-0 on aggregate over 2 legs in the Carabao Cup semifinal, their best two results in recent weeks.
Thomas Tuchel addressed the situation, warning that the supposed psychological advantage is barely a boost.
“The last results in the last games it was like this and we have to make sure that it is a third time again like this,” Tuchel said in his pre-match press conference.
“We play now three matches in such a short time, which is pretty unusual normally, and that’s why I think more or less they know what we do and we know what they do and it’s on us again to show up in games like this.”
“They come from a late victory that gives them a boost, we come from two wins in the Carabao Cup which should give us some confidence when we play the match.
“It’s not about having whatever advantages and being philosophical about it. It’s about delivering and we have to be in the right mood with the right attitude to deliver a top performance.”
Chelsea are just 8 points ahead of Spurs, who have 4 games in hand on them, so they absolutely cannot afford to lose this Sunday.
