Chelsea defeated Tottenham in the Carabao Cup first leg, but the second leg will take place on Wednesday night.
Tuchel is set to make a surprise decision against Tottenham on Wednesday, but can the German manager proceed to the final?
In football, anything can happen and there’s a possibility that Tottenham will make a comeback against Chelsea tomorrow.
Tottenham has done really well since the appointment of Antonio Conte and I will say that this Carabao cup is very important to them.
Antonio Conte will try his possible best to lift the trophy this season, but it’s going to be a big test for him to defeat Chelsea tomorrow.
Tottenham couldn’t get a single goal against Chelsea in the first leg, but let’s see what will happen tomorrow as Thomas Tuchel could make an unwanted decision.
N’Golo Kante’s Availability
N’Golo Kante could be out against Tottenham on Wednesday, though the German manager made his selection without N’Golo Kante in the first leg.
Saul Niguez started the game ahead of him and the Spanish midfielder had a good game.
The German manager could put his hope on the Spanish midfielder because N’Golo Kante’s availability is unclear.
Thomas Tuchel faced the media this afternoon and he made it clear that the players still need to train and he shall see what will happen.
Thomas Tuchel could make a decision that the Chelsea fans will not be happy about, but I don’t think that he should be blamed for any decision that he made tomorrow due to the player’s current situation.
N’Golo Kante is an important player and you could see his performance against Liverpool in the premier league.
He controlled the midfield until the final whistle. N’Golo Kante created 3 key passes against Liverpool and the manager needs this kind of performance against Tottenham tomorrow.
Let’s see what will happen tomorrow, Thomas Tuchel might start Saul Niguez and Mateo Kovacic if the French midfielder didn’t make it before the game. Jorginho is also fit and available for selection.
Thiago Silva’s Availability Also Unclear
We are talking about a game that the blues don’t need to attack because they won the first game 2-0.
Chelsea could proceed to the Carabao cup final tomorrow, if the club manages to defend well against Tottenham. It’s going to be possible with the help of Thiago Silva.
Thiago Silva tested positive for Covid-19, but anything can happen before Thomas Tuchel makes the final decision before the game. He could test negative before the game tomorrow and he will be selected.
Thiago Silva has something special to offer tomorrow, he is an experience defender and he is also a good leader. Thomas Tuchel will be happy to have him in the team tomorrow. Reece James is also a doubt against Tottenham.
Can Thomas Tuchel do this without the Brazilian defender or he should count on Antonio Rudiger and Christensen? Let’s see what will happen tomorrow and both players could be available for the selection. The manager has plenty options in the midfield and I think that Ruben Loftus-Cheek will be available.
