Spurs' chances of reaching their second Carabao Cup Final in two years took a significant hit when they lost to a Kai Havertz strike and a Ben Davies own goal at Stamford Bridge last week, but the fact that it could've been far more might just give Antonio Conte's side hope that it's not all over yet.

N’Golo Kante and Thiago Silva return to the Chelsea squad after missing recent games through illness, but both will start tonight's game on the bench. Malang Sarr retains his place in the Blues' Carabao Cup side and Timo Werner partners Romelu Lukaku up front.

Pierluigi Gollini starts in goal for Tottenham and Giovanni Lo Celso keeps his place after starting for the first time under Conte against Morecambe last weekend. Spurs will again be without Son Heung-min. The South Korean is a match-winner on his day, so Harry Kane will need to find his shooting boots to give Spurs any chance of upsetting the odds here. An early goal for the home side will certainly make things interesting.

It's a 7.45pm GMT kick-off (2.45pm ET) today, Wednesday 12th January, at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium Stadium. Read on to find out how to watch a Tottenham vs Chelsea live stream wherever you are in the world.

Watch a Tottenham vs Chelsea live stream abroad using a VPN

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant Carabao Cup rights holders, you won't be able to use them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. There are many VPN providers out there. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN which offers a 100 per cent risk-free money back guarantee. If you're not happy with the service any time within the first 30-days, then you can cancel with no penalties at all.

How to use a VPN

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. ExpressVPN is the one we recommend.

2. Open up the VPN app and choose the location of the service you wish to access. For the Carabao Cup, you may wish to choose 'Australia' to access Kayo Sports.

3. Then head over to Kayo on your browser or device and enjoy a Tottenham vs Chelsea stream.

If, for whatever reason, you can't get it working, then do remember that you have the comfort of a 30-day money back guarantee with ExpressVPN. You could also try NordVPN, which also comes with a 30-day money back guarantee, and Surfshark which offers 24 hour assistance.
