Cesar Azpilicueta has urged Chelsea FC to get revenge for their 3-1 loss at Tottenham Hotspur when the two London sides meet in the Carabao Cup semi-final.

The Blues booked their place in the last four of the competition thanks to a 1-0 win over Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge last week.

Tottenham, meanwhile, were 2-0 winners against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium to make up for their north London derby loss in the Premier League last month.

Spurs were rewarded for their win over the Gunners with a clash against Chelsea FC in the Carabao Cup semi-final.

Tottenham were 3-1 winners against Chelsea FC in their Premier League meeting at Wembley last month to end the west London side’s unbeaten start to the season.

Chelsea FC defender Azpilicueta hasn’t forgotten that frustrating result and is hoping the Blues can get their revenge in the Carabao Cup semi-final.

“Obviously after the loss of a few weeks ago, you always have it inside and you want to turn it around. We have the chance to qualify for a final, we play a derby over two legs so we will try everything to get through,” Azpilicueta is quoted as saying by Daily Mail.

“That loss was very tough. From the first minute to the last we were really bad. They were better than us. We cannot let this happen again. We have to improve.

“After that game we understood what we can improve on and obviously when the game gets closer, we will study them more and try to get better because the game we played that day was not acceptable.”

Chelsea FC beat Spurs in the League Cup final at Wembley in 2014-15 during Jose Mourinho’s second spell in charge.

The Blues are in fourth spot in the Premier League table and two points adrift of Tottenham in the race to secure a top-four spot.

Chelsea FC finished in fifth place and two spots behind Spurs in the Premier League last term to suggest their is a new force in the English capital.
