Tottenham Hotspur take on Chelsea in a London derby this weekend, with the winner taking fourth spot in the Premier League for the time being.

The two teams are in the midst of contrasting form, with Spurs boosted by the arrival of Jose Mourinho and Chelsea seemingly stagnating under Frank Lampard.

We have gone for a rather unconventional formation to combine the two sides, but here we go:

Hugo Lloris takes the spot in goal as the most experienced keeper by far, although Gazzaniga and Kepa could surpass him in a couple of years.

A back three is made up of the experienced Toby Alderweireld and young defenders Tomori and Sanchez, full of pace and tough tackling.

The central midfield includes two workhorses in Kante and Sissoko, while Mason Mount offers creativity from deep.

Harry Kane plays a number ten role behind Tammy Abraham, with Heung Min Son and Dele Alli coming off the flanks to join in with the attack, although this front four would be very fluid and interchanging.
