Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea are keen on overturning a 1-0 deficit to Tottenham from the first leg in this week’s tie in the bid to progress to the final of the Carabao Cup.
Harry Kane proved to be the difference the last time they met but will be missing through injury for this week’s Stamford Bridge clash.
The Blues suffered another demoralising defeat to another of their London rivals, Arsenal, last weekend and they will hope to bounce back against Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

One man who is eyeing a big performance is Chelsea talisman Eden Hazard, who on Tuesday admitted he had frustrated many managers at west London – and will continue to do so.
“I’ve frustrated all my managers and now I’m still frustrating Sarri,” he told the DailyMail.
“I frustrated (Jose) Mourinho. They think I need to score more, do more of this or that. And the next coach, I’ll frustrate him too.”
Speaking about the first leg against Spurs, Hazard said: “At some point, everyone loses. Against Tottenham, we had the right to be disappointed, but honestly, I had a great time.
“I wasn’t happy, because we lost, but deep down I was happy how I played and how we played.
“That was also what the coach said and I like that.”
