Tottenham Hotspur midfielder, Moussa Sissoko, has insisted his side are more than capable of competing on all fronts despite three major absences. Harry Kane and Dele Alli are sidelined with injuries while Son Heung-min is out serving South Korea in the AFC Asian Cup.
With three of their stars out, Spurs will have to dig deep to get the better of Chelsea when they visit Stamford Bridge for their Carabao Cup semi-final second leg on Thursday.

The Lilywhites have a 1-0 first-leg advantage going into the match and Sissoko feels they have enough in their locker to come out on top, once again.
“I do not agree with those people who say our squad is not good enough, not strong enough. We believe in our squad,” said Sissoko, who himself fighting to be fit for the game, as quoted by Mirror.
“We are all together and we know we are capable of doing a lot of things. Now we have to show it on the pitch and we have a good opportunity to do that against Chelsea. It won’t be easy. It will be a good battle. But those players who come in, they are good enough. They have proved it before. All of the squad can start games, can play. They are all good enough. We have an amazing squad.”
“I am very happy to play with these kinds of players. The reality is on the pitch. But whoever is on the pitch will give everything and show their quality. How close are we to winning something? In the Premier League every season is crazy and you have to fight until the end. There are a lot of good teams.”
“But we need to stay focused on our job and give our best and then we will see where we are. Hopefully we will win something this season, because the team deserves it,” he concluded.
