However, the trip to the Riverside Stadium will be a test for Pochettino’s best team, with ‘Boro pushing for further promotion to the EFL Championship play-offs, under former Manchester United star Michael Carrick.

Team news

Middlesbrough were left frustrated in their FA Cup clash with Villa when Matty Cash dumped them at the third-round stage. However, the prospect of a trip to the final at Wembley if they can overcome Chelsea will force Carrick to name a strong team for this first leg.
