While covid may have cancelled the other of this week's Carabao semis, Chelsea and Spurs are ready to go head to head at Stamford Bridge in part one of a tie that's set to explode. Tottenham boss Conte has said it will be an emotional return to the club where he won a league title and an FA Cup but he'll be the only one on the team bus that gets anything like a warm welcome from the home crowd.

Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku starts after a slap on the wrist regarding comments in an interview where he suggested that he was not happy at the club. Timo Werner makes the bench after a few weeks out. Havertz and Ziyech start instead.

Spurs start with the right-footed Doherty at left wing-back. Here's how to watch a Chelsea vs Tottenham live stream wherever you are.
