Tottenham will attempt a comeback from a 2-0 deficit in their Carabao Cup semi-final tie with Chelsea tonight.

Kai Havertz’s early strike and a Ben Davies own goal set the Blues on course for a day out at Wembley - although they must first navigate a tricky trip to North London to face old boss Antonio Conte.

While Chelsea cruised past Chesterfield in the third-round of the FA Cup on Saturday, Spurs were forced into a late comeback to defeat League One side Morecambe in their tie.

That result crystalised the size of the task Conte faces at Tottenham, who squeezed past Watford and drew at Southampton before the two cup matches.

Without a trophy since their 2008 League Cup triumph, the pressure is on Spurs to mount a famous comeback whereas Champions League holders Chelsea last won this competition seven years ago.

Date, kick-off time and venue

Tottenham vs Chelsea is scheduled for a 7.45m GMT kick-off on Wednesday, January 12, 2022.

Tottenham Stadium in London will host the match.

Tottenham vs Chelsea team news

Conte made eight changes to his regular XI for the win over Morecambe, the nature of which suggests he will return to his starters on Wednesday night.

Son Heung-min (leg) and Cristian Romero (hamstring) are out with Steven Bergwijn (foot) and Eric Dier (illness) doubts after missing the weekend’s game.

Thomas Tuchel may be able to welcome N’Golo Kante and Thiago Silva back to the Chelsea team after their Covid-19 absence. Reece James and Trevoh Chalobah (both hamstring) are set to miss out along with Ben Chilwell (knee) and Edouard Mendy (AFCON).

Cesar Azpilicueta (thigh) should be fit while the Blues could continue with youngsters Lewis Hall and Harvey Vale in their squad after runouts against Chesterfield.

Tottenham vs Chelsea prediction

Chelsea’s ruthless edge shone through in last season’s Champions League run and it is clear to see that Tottenham are far from the finished product under Conte. With the aggregate score the only one that counts, the Blues should see this one through.

If the tie is level at full-time, extra-time and penalties will be used with away goals not a factor in this competition.

A 1-1 draw (3-1 to Chelsea on aggregate).
