Have we got enough to defeat the Premier League table-toppers…?
Really, the entire team has to be on top, top form if we’re to pick up a successful result in the League Cup semi-final against Chelsea on Tuesday evening, but we reckon these five stars will need to especially on their games…
1) Simon Mignolet
The Belgian has kept consecutive clean-sheets, and his performance against Aston Villa on Saturday saw him singled out for praise by the manager – who’s aware of the criticism thrown Mignolet’s way throughout the campaign. Chelsea though are excellent from set-pieces, and have physically powerful players to cause problems in our area, so we’ll need the 26-year-old to command his box expertly. Shot-stopping has never been a problem for Mignolet, but he’ll need to take charge and be confident when dealing with deliveries into the box.
