Tottenham go into the semi-final with only two fully-fit central defenders.

Younes Kaboul (knee) and Michael Dawson (ankle) are out while Ledley King is a doubt with his chronic knee problem, leaving Ryan Nelsen and William Gallas as the only fit senior centre-halves.

Scott Parker is a doubt with a hamstring injury while long-term absentees Heurelho Gomes (knee) and Tom Huddlestone (ankle) are out.

Defenders John Terry and Ashley Cole have both been passed fit for Chelsea.

Terry (cracked ribs) and Cole (ankle) were doubts but have trained ahead of Sunday’s Wembley clash.

Branislav Ivanovic begins a three-match ban after being found guilty of violent conduct, while Ryan Bertrand (calf) and Oriol Romeu (illness) are set to miss out.

Tottenham (from): Friedel, Cudicini, Assou-Ekotto, Rose, Gallas, Khumalo, Walker, King, Nelsen, Livermore, Sandro, Parker, Bale, Lennon, Dos Santos, Modric, Defoe, Adebayor, Saha, Van der Vaart, Lancaster, Luongo.
