Chelsea will be away to Tottenham Hotspur at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for the second leg of the Carabao Cup clash on Wednesday night.

Chelsea had won the first leg 2-0 a week ago, and the Blues seem to have one leg stamped in the final at Wembley.

Speaking ahead of Wednesday’s game, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has given fitness update on the team.

According to Tuchel, there are no fresh injury concerns, and he also revealed that the duo of N’Golo Kante and Thiago Silva who had tested positive to covid have returned negative results. However, he’s yet to decide whether they’d be part of the team to play Spurs.

“Right now I would say we have the guys we had in the FA Cup and no new injuries, which is good news for us,” Tuchel said at his pre-match press conference conference.

“We have to wait on last-minute decisions on Thiago and N’Golo. They have cardiac tests and Covid tests to follow the protocols so we can bring them back to training so we have to wait to see if they can be involved and then see how they respond.

“It’s a gamble to play them so I’m not sure if we can do it and how much responsibility we can take there. We have to go step by step. I’m not even sure they will come to training but if they do, we can decide then.”
