Carabao Cup semi-final: Conte to be without two key players for Chelsea vs Tottenham tie

Tottenham Hotspur boss, Antonio Conte, will be without two key players when his team tackles Chelsea in tonight’s Carabao Cup semi-final first-leg tie due to injury.

Conte confirmed this during his pre-match press conference ahead of the Chelsea clash at Stamford Bridge.

The two players Conte will be without for the Chelsea clash are Ryan Sessegnon and Steven Bergwijn.

Tottenham heads to the match following a 1-0 Premier League win against Watford in their previous game.

“Ryan is coming back very soon, but we don’t want to take risks,” Conte told Spurs TV.

“We will wait for the game in the FA Cup [Morecambe at home on Sunday].”

Conte added: “Ryan’s situation is better than Steven Bergwijn’s. I think in the next game in the FA Cup he will be available.

“For Steve, we’ve to pay more attention, because his problem was in the calf, and with a calf, you’ve to pay more attention and wait a bit to have him available.”

The kick-off time for Chelsea vs Tottenham is 8.45 pm.
