Things spotted in Chelsea training ahead of Tottenham
Chelsea will be aiming to take one step towards the Carabao Cup final as they take on London rivals Tottenham Hotspur. The Blues host Spurs, and of course former boss Antonio Conte, at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday for their last four first-leg showdown. infoguidenigeria
It goes without saying that Chelsea will be keen to rack up an advantage ahead of their trip to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for the decisive leg – a task that will not necessarily be so straightforward considering the resurgence that the north London side are enjoying under Conte.
That is why Thomas Tuchel has been putting his troops through their paces on the Cobham training pitches.
Lukaku back in action
Ever since his explosive interview stating that he was ‘not happy’ with his current situation at Chelsea, questions have been swirling around the future of record transfer Romelu Lukaku.
The Belgian was dropped by Thomas Tuchel for the Blues’ entertaining 2-2 draw with Liverpool on Sunday.
The Chelsea boss then hinted that he would hold a meeting with the striker in an attempt to clear the air, and that appears to have gone without a hitch, with Lukaku being spotted in training.
