Tottenham team news: Pochettino confirms triple injury boost ahead of Chelsea trip
Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed some positive team news ahead of Tottenham’s Carabao Cup clash with Chelsea on Thursday night.
Tottenham take a narrow 1-0 lead in to Thursday night’s Carabao Cup semi-final second leg against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
Ahead of the game, Mauricio Pochettino has been speaking to the media at his pre-match press conference and he’s provided a full team news and injury update including the latest on a number of Tottenham players.
The Spurs boss was pleased to confirm a double boost with the news that Lucas Moura and Moussa Sissoko are fit and available for selection to face Chelsea after returning to full training this week.
Moura has been sidelined with a knee injury in recent games while Sissoko missed the win at Fulham last weekend with a groin strain that he sustained against Manchester United earlier this month.
Tottenham have also revealed another piece of positive news as Victor Wanyama has resumed full training after recovering from a lengthy knee injury. Pochettino says the Chelsea game tomorrow will come too soon but the midfielder could be back in the squad for the FA Cup trip to Crystal Palace on Sunday.

Poch on team news: "Sissoko and Lucas are back in contention for tomorrow and Wanyama hopefully back for the weekend."

Tottenham will obviously have to make-do without star striker Harry Kane against Chelsea on Thursday night as the England international has been ruled out until March with an ankle injury.
Dele Alli will also miss the next six weeks with a hamstring injury that he suffered at Fulham while Heung-min Son is still away at the Asian Cup with South Korea so Tottenham will be without three of their first choice attack at Stamford Bridge.
