Predicted XI to face Chelsea in the semi final

Tottenham Hotspur take on Chelsea in the second leg of their Carabao Cup semi final this evening, as both clubs look to book their place in the final alongside Man City.

Spurs enter the second leg one goal to the good after Harry Kane tucked away a penalty at Wembley, heavily assisted by VAR.

However, Pochettino will be without his top goal scorer later at Stamford Bridge, after Kane sustained another ankle injury in the game against Man United.

Dele Alli is also out injured, and Heung Min Son is available.

We believe that Gazzaniga will retake his position between the sticks, as he has in every cup game this season.

Poch will stick with a back five, with Vertonghen, Sanchez, and Alderweireld still at the heart.

However, Serge Aurier and Ben Davies replace Kieran Trippier and Danny Rose for the day.

Winks remains in midfield after his match winner against Fulham, joined be the recent returnees Eric Dier and Moussa Sissoko for some extra solidity.

Fernando Llorente drops to the bench, as Poch may chose to match Chelsea’s false nine formation, with Lucas Moura up top, and Eriksen just behind.
