- The previous match was the fourth time Tottenham had lost the first leg of a League Cup semi-final tie; They were eliminated from the first two, but last advanced against Chelsea in 2001–02 (1–2 first leg, 5–1 second leg).
- In all competitions, since Liverpool’s exit in the 2006–07 Champions League semi-finals, Chelsea have progressed from each of their last 13 two-legged ties, winning the first leg. Winning by more than one goal, the Blues have been eliminated only once – against Barcelona in the 1999–00 Champions League quarter-final (3–1 home, 1–5 away).
- Tottenham have lost only one of their five League Cup home matches against Chelsea (W2 D2), losing 3–0 in a quarter-final replay in January 1991.
- Chelsea have already beaten Tottenham twice this season, including a 3-0 Premier League win at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. The last time they beat Spurs three times in a single season was 2001–02(4), while that was also the last time they won two away games against Spurs in the same campaign.
