The Blues will be looking to pick up their fourth consecutive win across all competitions when they face the Championship side. They have only lost once in their last six matches and are the firm favourites to be one of the finalists in the competition.
Middlesbrough are languishing in the middle of the Championship standings. They will find it difficult against Mauricio Pochettino's team given their current form which has seen them lose three out of their last four games.

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.
