Tottenham XI vs Chelsea FC: scheduled roster, confirmed squad news, injury and latest Covid for Carabao Cup draw

Harry Kane, Lucas Moura and Oliver Skipp, who came off the bench to save the third round game against Morecambe, are all expected to return to the XI, while Hugo Lloris, Emerson Royal, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Davinson Sanchez are also expected to start.

Dier’s continued absence, however, leaves him with a headache in the final three, after Japhet Tanganga’s nightmarish performance in the first leg at Stamford Bridge. Joe Rodon was not particularly convincing against Morecambe but was able to keep his place in the squad.

Sergio Reguilon is also seen as a doubt, so Ryan Sessegnon could continue at left-back.

“[There are] no new injured players but we did not recover injured players, ”Conte said on Tuesday. I don’t want to talk about names. But we have a few situations, a few injuries that are very close to starting the game again.

“But at the same time, I think it’s better not to take stupid risks for tomorrow’s game because we risk losing these players for a long time. It is important to give them the right time to recover and for this reason tomorrow we did not recover any players from the last game.

Conte revealed that Bergwijn and Romero were both “very close” to resuming training and said of the Argentina defender: “Today Cristian had a small part of a training session with us. We are talking about another important player for us.

“We lost him for almost two months and I think we faced this situation in the best possible way because Cristian is certainly an important player for us.

“Despite that, the players who played and were good and improved. For example, Sanchez is improving a lot. Now Cristian is about to come back and be available.
