Spurs take on Chelsea in the second leg of the Carabao Cup semi-finals. Spurs will aim to hurdle injury issues and a two-goal deficit as they host the Blues at the Tottenham stadium.
Antonio Conte doesn’t expect to welcome any of the recently-sidelined players back for Wednesday’s Carabao Cup semi-final, second leg against Chelsea – although he had encouraging news on Cristian Romero when he spoke to the media.
With Romero, Steven Bergwijn, Eric Dier, and Heung-Min Son all missing for Sunday’s FA Cup win against Morecambe, the Spurs Head Coach acknowledged at his pre-match news conference that “we didn’t recover any players compared to the last game.”
We have a couple of cases that if we want to risk (them) for tomorrow’s game, we risk to lose players for a long period said Conte.
Spurs trailed 2-0 in the first leg last week at Stamford Bridge, where Son was last seen. He didn’t play against Morecambe, and Antonio confirmed today that he won’t be back until after the winter break at the end of this month.
Tottenham are aware of the challenges that lie ahead and look forward to turning things around in the second leg.
