Get Ready For a Battle In London


Spurs will be just over 24 hours removed from losing to RB Leipzig in the Champions League, meaning Chelsea will fancy their chances against their striker-less rivals.


Chelsea have been anything but solid at the back in recent weeks, while Spurs’ two top goalscorers are both sidelined.


Chelsea are almost as critically injured as Tottenham – Ngolo Kante is out and defender Andreas Christensen is also a doubt after both picked up injuries against Manchester United.


Spurs sit just one point behind the Blues after three straight wins in the Premier League while Frank Lampard has overseen just one victory in six.


Spurs may revert to a 4-4-2 setup, with Japhet Tanganga coming into the side and Serge Aurier pushed forward.
