Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has claimed Eden Hazard is not a leader ahead of the Carabao Cup semi-final clash with Tottenham.
He said: “At this moment Hazard is more of an individual player. He is very important to us because he’s a great player. He can always win the match in two minutes or one minute.
“At the moment he is not a leader but a great player – one of the best in the world.
“We have some players with the characteristics to be a leader. Azpilicueta and Luiz. I think they can help the other players.”
Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed Moussa Sissoko and Lucas Moura could play at Stamford Bridge.
“I think it’s good news that Moussa and Lucas are going to be in contention and Victor has started to join the group. The manager and coaches always want their players to be available.”
New Chelsea signing Gonzalo Higuain will not play though as he signed for the club too late.
Tottenham lead 1-0 from the first leg thanks to a Harry Kane penalty.
