Chelsea will head to Wembley Stadium on Tuesday when they face Tottenham Hotspur in their semi-final first leg.

The Blues, who suffered were undone by Spurs in the Premier League at the same venue earlier in the season, will want to improve on their fortunes as Maurizio Sarri looks to win his first piece of silverware.

However, it appears the Stamford Bridge outfit have a number of injury concerns heading into the match.

Olivier Giroud, Pedro and Willian have all been sidelined recently and were absent for Chelsea’s FA Cup game with Nottingham Forest at the weekend.

And, it would seem that Sarri may be without the trio on Tuesday, admitting he was not sure if they would be able to play.

“We don’t know at the moment,” he told the club’s official website.

“Pedro, Willian and Giroud are doing better, yesterday they had training with their team-mates, with the group. I don’t know if they will be able to play tomorrow, maybe not for 90 minutes.”

One man that will not feature for Chelsea is Ruben Loftus-Cheek after he was forced to withdraw from the game against Nottingham Forest with an injury.

“Loftus-Cheek of course is out now, we have to understand the situation with his back because in the last month he was in trouble,” he added.

It remains to be seen if Cesc Fabregas will feature against Tottenham, although he appeared to wave his goodbyes to the fans after Saturday’s win.
