Confirmed lineups: Chelsea vs Spurs EFL Cup Semi-final
Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur are set to meet in the first leg of their EFL Cup semi-final at Stamford Bridge this evening.
Thomas Tuchel’s side will be hoping for a change in fortunes having drawn four of their previous five Premier League matches (W1).
The Blues will welcome former manager Antonio Conte to West London. The Italian has been in charge of Spurs for two months now and remains unbeaten in the Premier League, with five wins and three draws.
The two lineups for this evening’s game are confirmed as:
Kepa Arrizabalaga; Cesar Azpilicueta, Antonio Rudiger, Malang Sarr, Marcos Alonso; Jorginho, Saul, Hakim Ziyech, Mason Mount; Kai Havertz, Romelu Lukaku
Substitutes: Marcus Bettinelli, Mateo Kovacic, Lewis Hall, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Ross Barkley, Harvey Vale, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Christian Pulisic, Timo Werner
Chelsea welcome Romelu Lukaku back to the starting lineup, whilst their lack of options in defence is highlighted by not a single defender being named among the substitutes.
Hugo Lloris; Japhet Tanganga, Davinson Sanchez, Ben Davies; Emerson Royal, Oliver Skipp, Pierre Emire Hojbjerg, Matt Doherty; Lucas Moura, Harry Kane, Son Heung-min
Substitutes: Pierluigi Gollini, Brandon Austin, Joe Rodon, Sergio Reguilon, Tanguy Ndombele, Giovani Lo Celso, Harry Winks, Bryan Gil, Dele Alli
Antonio Conte names a strong starting XI also, with Spurs’ next game being at home to Morecambe in the FA Cup on Sunday.
