Moussa Sissoko returned to training on Wednesday (Getty Images) Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed that both Lucas Moura and Moussa Sissoko are in contention to face Chelsea during Thursday’s Carabao Cup semi-final second leg. Spurs are bidding to reach their first final in four years when they make the short trip to Stamford Bridge and hold
Lucas has been absent for three weeks after suffering a knee injury during the FA Cup third round tie against Tranmere, while Sissoko missed Sunday’s game against Fulham with a groin strain sustained in the 1-0 defeat to Manchester United.
Given Spurs’ shortage of options in attack, Lucas’ return is particularly good news with the Brazilian having scored nine goals in 36 games for the club this season.
Fernando Llorente was handed a rare start in the 2-1 win over Fulham but failed to take his chance, scoring an own goal in the game and Lucas could threaten to take his place up front.
Sissoko, meanwhile, has been a revelation for Spurs this season, finally establishing himself as a key member of Pochettino’s side having joined from Newcastle back in 2016.
