Middlesbrough vs Chelsea kick-off time

Date: January 9, 2024

Kick-off time: 8 pm GMT

Venue: Riverside Stadium

The match will be played at the Riverside Stadium on Tuesday, with kick-off scheduled for 8 pm GMT for fans in the UK.

Middlesbrough forward Morgan Rogers picked up his second booking of the tournament during the victory over Port Vale. Consequently, he is set to serve a one-game suspension in the upcoming first leg on Tuesday.

Manager Michael Carrick's squad will also be without Finn Azaz and Sam Greenwood, who are cup-tied. Australian players Samuel Silvera and Riley McGree are on international duty, and Senegal goalkeeper Seny Dieng is also unavailable.

There were no new injury concerns emerging over the weekend, but Tom Smith, Darragh Lenihan, Lewis O'Brien, Marcus Forss, and Patrick McNair continue to be sidelined for the time being.

Chelsea boss Pochettino is once again navigating through the ongoing issue of key players being absent. Nicolas Jackson is away with his national team for AFCON and a new hip injury has caused doubt over the availability of Christopher Nkunku.

The same uncertainty surrounds the availability of Ben Chilwell, Carney Chukwuemeka, and Benoit Badiashile. On the other hand, Reece James, Wesley Fofana, Marc Cucurella, Robert Sanchez, Lesley Ugochukwu, Trevoh Chalobah, and Romeo Lavia are confirmed to be ruled out.

Just as it was three days ago for the FA Cup visit of Premier League side Aston Villa, the Riverside will be full and rocking as the Blues head to the north-east.

Chelsea may well learn from Villa's narrow win that Boro are no straightforward second-tier side that they can brush aside with their top-flight might.

But they may be pleased to be heading away from home for the first of this two-legged tie, particularly having smashed Championship side Preston on the weekend.

A second Carabao Cup final in three years is on Chelsea's agenda here, whereas Michael Carrick's Boro can enjoy a night off from their play-off chase in pursuit of a first piece of silverware since they won this competition 20 years ago.

Mauricio Pochettino's side booked their spot in the FA Cup Fourth Round, via a 4-0 weekend win over Preston North End, as Middlesbrough were eliminated from the competition after a late 1-0 defeat at home to Aston Villa.

However, a trip to the Riverside Stadium will be a test for Pochettino's top-flight side, with 'Boro pushing for another EFL Championship promotion playoff spot, under former Manchester United star Michael Carrick.

Middlesbrough were left frustrated in their FA Cup clash against Villa as Matty Cash's deflected goal dumped them out at the Third Round stage. However, the prospect of a trip to a Wembley final, if they can get past Chelsea, will force Carrick to name a strong team in this first-leg clash.

Pochettino is still dealing with a lengthy injury list at Chelsea with at least 10 players ruled out through injury for the visitors. Noni Madueke and Conor Gallagher could rotate back into the team with Alfie Gilchrist starting at full-back.

The Blues, who edged past Newcastle in the quarter-finals after penalties, are hoping to win the competition for the sixth time. Mauricio Pochettino will also be desperate to pick up silverware in his debut season at Stamford Bridge to ease the pressure in the Chelsea hot seat.

Chelsea are also into the fourth round of the FA Cup following their 4-0 win against Preston on Saturday but their Premier League form has been inconsistent, with the Blues currently tenth in the table and 12 points off the top four.

Pochettino's side face Championship outfit Middlesbrough over two legs, with Michael Carrick's men all in on the Carabao Cup and securing a play-off spot by the end of the season.

Middlesbrough, who were knocked out of the FA Cup on Saturday by Aston Villa, won the Carabao Cup in 2004 in a 2-1 win against Bolton and they've also been runners-up on two occasions.

The Championship club will be eyeing a trip to Wembley after a soli
