Tottenham bounced back from their 1-0 home defeat at the hands of Manchester City with back-to-back wins over Wolves and Crystal Palace. On home turf, though, Spurs have struggled, with two wins and two defeats at Wembley this season, those losses coming at the hands of top-six rivals Liverpool and City.
No less, they sit just one point behind Chelsea, who are one of three unbeaten teams in the Premier League this season. The Blues have won three of the last five competitive meetings between these two, including a 2-1 win in this game last term, and have earned 13 of 15 available points on the road thus far.
Tottenham- Kieran Trippier is a doubt having been forced off in the first half of the 1-0 win at Crystal Palace before the international break, with Serge Aurier in line to start. Place Bet on Live Matches 24/7 on NaijaBet
Despite returning to full training, Jan Vertonghen is not expected to start this weekend with one eye on next week’s clash with Inter in the Champions League.
Eric Dier may come in for Victor Wanyama in the middle of the park, while Christian Eriksen, who only played 45 minutes for Denmark in midweek, should be fine to start.
Chelsea– Mateo Kovacic is a doubt for Chelsea and, other than the confirmed absence of Ethan Ampadu, Maurizio Sarri has a fully fit squad to choose from.
Alvaro Morata and Willian should get the nod ahead of Olivier Giroud and Pedro, though.
