Tottenham welcome Chelsea to Wembley for the first leg of the EFL Cup semi-final on Tuesday night.

The hosts have already beaten Chelsea at the national stadium this season, running out 3-1 winners in the Premier League thanks to goals from Dele Alli, Harry Kane and Son Heung-min.

All three of those goalscorers are expected to start on Tuesday despite the fact Son and Alli played the majority of Friday’s 7-0 victory over Tranmere Rovers in the FA Cup.

The club has already confirmed Paulo Gazzaniga will start between the sticks, just as he did against Tranmere.

Kieran Trippier and Danny Rose should return on the flanks, while Davinson Sanchez will probably partner Toby Alderweireld at centre-back – Pochettino has confirmed Jan Vertonghen and Mousa Dembele aren’t quite ready.

We expect to see the common midfield trio of Harry Winks, Moussa Sissoko and Christian Eriksen supporting Alli, Son and Kane up front.

Erik Lamela has returned from illness and should be on the bench but Lucas Moura is absent through injury.

Here’s our predicted line-up to face Chelsea – what’s yours? Let us know in the comments section below.
