Cesar Azpilicueta (thigh) should be fit while the Blues could continue with youngsters Lewis Hall and Harvey Vale in their squad after runouts against Chesterfield.
Tottenham vs Chelsea prediction
Chelsea’s ruthless edge shone through in last season’s Champions League run and it is clear to see that Tottenham are far from the finished product under Conte. With the aggregate score the only one that counts, the Blues should see this one through.
If the tie is level at full-time, extra-time and penalties will be used with away goals not a factor in this competition.
A 1-1 draw (3-1 to Chelsea on aggregate).
