Chelsea Receive Big Boost and Good News Ahead of Their Carabao Cup Fixture Against Southampton

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has confirmed some positive news and a significant roster boost ahead of their EFL Carabao Cup third round match against Southampton. Ngolo Kante is eligible for selection for Tuesday's EFL Carabao Cup match against Southampton and Saturday's Premier League match against Newcastle United, according to Chelsea manager Tuchel. Ngolo Kante has made a full recovery and will train with the Chelsea first team at Cobham on Monday, while Lukaku, Werner, and Pulisic are still recovering. 

With two triumphs and two draws in their last four meetings in all competitions, the Blues have controlled the match against Southampton. Chelsea just defeated Southampton 3-1 in the Premier League, with the Saints reduced to ten men due to a red card, and are poised to mount a spectacular comeback. Chelsea are expected to start goalkeeper Kepa Arizabalanga, who will be flanked by Rudiger, Silva, and Reece James in defense as they look for a second consecutive clean sheet. Marcos Alonso, Jorginho, Saul Niguez, and Callum Hudson Odoi will play in the Chelsea midfield, while Mason Mount, Kai Havertz, and Hakim Ziyech will play in the attack.
