Tottenham Hotspur take on Chelsea in the first leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final tonight at Wembley.

Spurs come into the fixture in great form, with 22 goals in their last five matches.

Tottenham also beat the Blues 3-1 during their last meeting at the national stadium, and will be hoping to get one over on their rivals again on their route to the final.

Spurs have been without a trophy for over a decade, and Pochettino has never won one as a manager.

This could be the best chance to get both parties up and running.

Paulo Gazzaniga returns in goal again for Tottenham, as he likely will throughout the cup competitions.

Kieran Trippier, Danny Rose, and Toby Alderweireld return to the starting line up after rests against Tranmere.

Harry Winks and Moussa Sissoko man the midfield, with Dele Alli just in front, who may be used to mark Jorginho tightly as he did last time around.

Harry Kane, Heung Min Son, and Christian Eriksen make up the front three, with every one of the deadly trio in fine goal scoring form.
