Tottenham Hotspur will lock horns with Chelsea again this evening, as both teams look to secure a place in the Carabao Cup Final 2019 against Man City.
Spurs won the first leg 1-0 at Wembley, thanks to a VAR assisted penalty dispatched by Harry Kane.
However, Spurs’ top man will be unavailable for the reverse fixture after picking up an ankle injury against Man United.
Dele Alli is also out injured, and Heung Min Son remains away with South Korea at the Asia Cup.
Spurs must therefore make do with Fernando Llorente and recent returnee Lucas Moura up front, if Poch decides to play them both together.
He may instead go for solidity and defend the lead he already has, despite that not being his usual style.
We believe that Pochettino will play five at the back and pack the midfield to make the match a physical battle, with the final score being 1-1, goals from Hazard and Lucas.
