Chelsea FC XI vs Tottenham: squad news confirmed, starting line-up, Covid, latest Carabao Cup injury today


Chelsea will face Tottenham in their Carabao Cup semi-final second leg tonight after surviving the weekend without any further injury concerns.

Tuchel took the opportunity to rest a crowd of players in Saturday’s FA Cup third round victory over Chesterfield, but recalled Antonio Rudiger, Cesar Azpilicueta and Jorginho for the trip to Spurs.

Tuchel insists there is no danger of complacency, despite his side holding a 2-0 lead in the first leg.

He said: “We prepared in the best way, we did it for the first game and we will do it again. You have to be there, forget the first result and start over.

“I have confidence in myself, in my staff but also in my team and my players. This is what we are used to, arriving well prepared or you have no chance of winning consistently or at this level. We’ve proven it, that’s why we can afford to trust this one, that we’ve got the right attitude and then we’ll have the right game.

“I guess everyone knows we are playing a very important game in a derby against Tottenham, a big stadium, a big club and a very competitive manager on the other side, so we need our best.”

Chelsea’s starting lineup (3-4-3): Kepa, Christensen, Sarr, Rudiger, Azpilicueta, Jorginho, Kovacic, Hudson-Odoi, Mount, Lukaku, Werner.
