Jose Mourinho has named his Tottenham Hotspur side which will take to the field against Chelsea this afternoon.

The Portuguese returns to Stamford Bridge for the first time in Spurs colours since taking over from Mauricio Pochettino at the end of November.

The visitors are once again without a focal point to their attack with both Harry Kane (hamstring) and Heung-min Son (arm) both sidelined through injury.

Spurs have won only three of their 13 Premier League away fixtures this season. They won at least nine top-flight away matches in each of the last seven campaigns.

However, Chelsea’s form at home has been less than impressive. Frank Lampard’s seven home defeats in all competitions is their most in a single season since 1994-95.

Fourth place is up for grabs for the winner, with Chelsea able to extend their advantage over their fierce rivals to four points while Spurs can go two points ahead.

This is the side which features for Spurs:

Tottenham Hotspur: Lloris (C), Tanganga, Sanchez, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Davies, Winks, Ndombele, Lo Celso, Bergwijn, Lucas.

Subs: Gazzaniga, Aurier, Dier, Gedson, Skipp, Lamela, Dele
