Spurs come into this game in the midst of an injury crisis hoping to secure a place in the final against Man City after a 1-0 win in the first leg

Chelsea must overturn a 1-0 defeat in the first leg if they are to overcome Tottenham and set up a Carabao Cup final date with Manchester City.

Spurs' injury crisis worsened over the weekend after Dele Alli suffered a hamstring injury in the win at Fulham which will keep him out until March, to join Harry Kane on the sidelines.

This comes at the worst possible time for Tottenham as they chase their first trophy since 2008 in this competition.

The Blues are likely to rotate against Sheffield Wednesday in the FA Cup at the weekend so they should play a strong team against Spurs.

Forwards Kane, Llorente

Tottenham are missing several key players, with Harry Kane and Dele Alli injured, and Heung-Min Son away on international duty with South Korea at the Asian Cup.

However, Lucas Moura and Moussa Sissoko are in contention to feature, and midfielder Victor Wanyama has returned to training.

Confirmed Tottenham starting XI:  Gazzaniga; Aurier, Vertonghen, Alderweireld, Davies; Winks, Dier; Sissoko, Eriksen, Lamela; Llorente.

Match Preview

Fernando Llorente Tottenham 2018-19

Chelsea have been handed a huge opportunity to reach the final of the Carabao Cup as Spurs are currently without many of their key players.

Tottenham will undoubtedly miss Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son, and they will now be relying on Fernando Llorente to lead the line at Stamford Bridge.

Llorente looked wholly unimpressive against Fulham at the weekend, scoring an own goal and squandering multiple chances.

Harry Winks was Spurs' saviour at Craven Cottage but, in the process of beating Fulham, they lost another of their biggest goal scoring threats in Dele Alli.

The Blues have been shy of confidence recently, with Maurizio Sarri facing multiple issues to deal with, amid questions over the team's playing style.

Sarri will be hoping potential new arrival Gonzalo Higuain can fix their woes in front of goal but the Argentinian won't be playing in this fixture.

Spurs will be buoyed by the fact their defenders are all fit and available and, following a 1-0 win in the first leg, know a clean sheet would see them progress to the final against Manchester City.
