Chelsea show two changes from the 0-0 draw with Southampton in their most recent Premier League match six days ago, with Christensen and Hudson-Odoi coming in for David Luiz and Alvaro Morata respectively, the latter of whom is not even included among the subs. Hudson-Odoi’s inclusion is an interesting one, coming amid rumours of a Bayern bid of £35m, and it will mean a central role for Hazard. Elsewhere, Barkley is given the nod over Kovacic on the left of the visitors’ midfield three.
Tottenham have reverted back to what is effectively their strongest outfield XI for this semi-final clash, making just one change from the 3-0 Premier League win over Cardiff City on New Year’s Day. Gazzaniga is given the nod over Lloris, who is included among the subs, while Son continues to partner Kane and Alli in the forward line ahead of his departure for the Asian Cup next weekend. Lamela is back in the matchday squad, meanwhile, after recovering from a minor injury that has kept him out for two weeks.
