How Tottenham Hotspur could line up against Chelsea

Ahead of Tuesday's EFL Cup clash between Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea, Sports Mole looks at how Mauricio Pochettino's side could line up at Wembley.

Tottenham Hotspur head into Tuesday's EFL Cup semi-final fixture with Chelsea looking to register their second win over the Blues in the space of just over six weeks.

The North London outfit stormed to a 3-1 victory on November 24, with the result currently keeping Spurs marginally ahead in the Premier League table.

Spurs have also recorded 14 victories from 17 outings in all competitions, with Mauricio Pochettino's side warming up for this fixture with a 7-0 demolition of Tranmere Rovers in the FA Cup.

Pochettino will make changes to his side for this match, and here Sports Mole looks at how his team could line up against their London rivals.



TOTXI VS. CHE

Out: Eric Dier (appendix), Jan Vertonghen (thigh), Mousa Dembele (ankle), Victor Wanyama (knee), Vincent Janssen (ankle)
Doubtful: Erik Lamela (illness)

Fernando Llorente netted a hat-trick in the fixture at Tranmere, but the Spaniard will drop back down to the bench with Harry Kane taking his place.

Dele Alli and Son Heung-min also featured against the League Two side, but the duo will likely line up alongside Christian Eriksen behind Kane.

Harry Winks and Moussa Sissoko were both handed a rest on Merseyside, and the pair are expected to start against the Blues with Oliver Skipp missing out.

Kieran Trippier should be named at right-back - despite Serge Aurier's double on Friday - while Toby Alderweireld and Ben Davies are likely to get the nod over Juan Foyth and Danny Rose respectively.
