Welcome to the first leg of the League Cup semifinal. This is the away leg, with the home leg to follow in a fortnight. Wembley, and the winners of Liverpool vs. Fulham, await the winners here.

Mauricio Pochettino makes a couple changes from Saturday’s 4-0 win, including up top, where we have no recognized striker. We haven’t seen that look in a few months. Plenty of Academy talent on the bench as well.

Here we go!

Middlesbrough starting XI:
Glover | Van Den Berg, Barlaser, Fry, Hackney, Latte Lath, I.Jones, Howson (c), Bangura, Crooks, Engel

Substitutes from: J.Jones, Clarke, Gilbert, Coburn, O’Brien, Kavanagh, McCabe, Bridge, Bilongo

Chelsea starting lineup (4-3-3)
Petrović | Colwill, Silva, Disasi, Gusto | Enzo, Gallagher (c), Caicedo | Palmer, Sterling, Madueke

Substitutes from: Bettinelli, Bergström, Gilchrist, Williams, Golding, Mudryk, Washington, Broja

Date / Time: Tuesday, January 9, 2023, 20.00 GMT; 3pm EST; 1:30am IST (next day)
Venue: Riverside Stadium, Middlesbrough
Referee: Sam Barrott (on pitch); no VAR because Boro’s stadium doesn’t have the necessary equipment

On TV: Sky Sports Main Event (UK); none (USA); none (India); SuperSport Premier League (NGA); elsewhere
Streaming: Sky Go (UK); ESPN+ (USA); FanCode (India); DStv Now (NGA)


Be excellent to each other, and party on, dudes!
