Chelsea face Tottenham Hotspur in the second leg of the Carabao Cup semi finals on Wednesday 12 January at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The Blues beat our London rivals 2-0 at Stamford Bridge last week and will hope to finish the job at the home of our rivals on Wednesday night.

The game between Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur will be officiated by referee Andre Marriner.

Marriner will be assisted by Edward Smart and Scott Ledger while the fourth official will be Robert Jones. Michael Dean will be in charge of VAR.

Meanwhile, Tottenham Hotspur boss Antonio Conte admitted after Chelsea’s 2-0 Carabao Cup semi-final victory over Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday night that the Blues are much better than Tottenham Hotspur.

Conte told Sky Sports: “If you compare the two teams, there is no comparison. They are a team ready to win. Today we have seen the difference between the two teams.”

He added: “It’s not easy to play at Stamford Bridge. They were very concentrated, won the ball every time. Then we conceded an unlucky goal. But when you start the game and after 15 minutes they score, the game becomes very difficult.

“But I know the situation, it’s very clear. There is an important gap, with important teams. We have to fight to stay in the league in a good position, but if we think we are close about winning, we are not in the right way.

“They were much better than us, we have to clap the performance of Chelsea. I like to tell the truth. There is a lot of job to do in Tottenham.”
