Tottenham vs Chelsea: Line-ups



Blues to Continue Unbeaten Run


The hosts played out a 2-2 draw with Rennes in the Europa Conference League in midweek, whereas Chelsea started their Champions League defence with a 1-0 success over Zenit St Petersburg.


It may have been all sunshine and rainbows for Nuno Espirito Santo during his three-game winning run in the Premier League – which saw Spurs briefly top the rankings – but a humbling 3-0 defeat at Crystal Palace last weekend has seen them drop to seventh amid a challenging seven days.


Thomas Tuchel only just managed to scrape a top-four finish with this Chelsea side last term amid their run to Porto, but the German’s well-oiled machine firmly have the look of title contenders this time around, although clashes with Juventus and Manchester City before the end of the month will truly test their mettle.


The Blues travel across the capital having lost just one of their last 15 away matches in all competitions, while they have scored in each of their last six Premier League matches on the road – a streak that does not appear to be ending any time soon with Lukaku firing on all cylinders.


A Jorginho penalty propelled Chelsea to a 1-0 win in this fixture last term during the earliest days of Tuchel’s reign, and the Blues are unbeaten in their last five Premier League matches versus Tottenham – winning four of them and conceding just one goal in that run.

DPP Verdict

Spurs’ injury problems in attack are mounting, but the potential returns of Sanchez and Romero will at least ease their concerns on the defensive front before Tuchel’s rampant forces pay a visit. It is difficult to envisage Chelsea banking multiple goals in the capital if Santo has his first-choice backline available, but the visitors’ own staunch rearguard action should shine through as they scrape a narrow win at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
