Tottenham face Chelsea in the first leg of their Carabao Cup semi final on Tuesday, hoping to move a step closer to reaching the final of the competition for the second year running.
Cristian Romero (hamstring), Ryan Sessegnon (muscle) and Steven Bergwijn (calf) remain the only absentees for Antonio Conte, although the Spurs boss said in his press conference that he’s waiting on the results of two Covid-19 PCR tests ahead of the game at Stamford Bridge.
Conte didn’t reveal the names of the two players, but reporter Alasdair Gold left Eric Dier out of his predicted team for the game, which suggests that he might be one.
If Dier is unavailable, it could allow Joe Rodon to make his first appearance since the defeat to Mura and first domestic start since April.
We think that will be one of two changes from the victory over Watford on New Year’s Day, with Oliver Skipp making way for Harry Winks.
Here’s our predicted XI to face Chelsea – what’s yours? Let us know in the comments section below.
Lloris, Sanchez, Rodon, Davies, Royal, Winks, Hojbjerg, Reguilon, Lucas, Son, Kane.
