Chelsea's assistant boss Gianfranco Zola says players and supporters are keen to be at their best for the Carabao Cup semi-final with Tottenham. Eden Hazard came off the substitutes' bench to score six minutes from time in a 1-0 quarter-final win over Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge, setting up next month's two-legged tie with Spurs.

Tottenham beat Chelsea 3-1 at Wembley last month and Zola reckons Chelsea are keen to impress: "Everyone is very excited to be facing them again. We are happy because, some time ago, they gave us a good footballing lesson. We're looking forward to challenging them again.
