Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has picked his side which will face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge this evening.

Spurs will be licking their wounds following the disappointing 2-1 defeat at Burnley on Saturday which has almost ended their hopes of catching Manchester City and Liverpool in the race for the Premier League title.

Chelsea come into the game having played an extra 30 minutes during their Carabao Cup final defeat to Pep Guardiola’s side.

The midfield pair of Dele Alli (hamstring) and Eric Dier (illness) miss out once more.

The home side have failed to score in three of their last four Premier League games. Their last three league games have produced a total of 15 goals (5 per game), with the Blues beating Huddersfield 5-0 and suffering 0-4 and 0-6 defeats against Bournemouth and Man City respectively.

This is who starts for both sides.

Chelsea: Caballero, Azpilicueta, Rudiger, David Luiz, Alonso, Jorginho, Kante, Kovacic, Pedro, Hazard, Higuain.

Subs: Kepa, Christensen, Barkley, Loftus-Cheek, Hudson-Odoi, Willian, Giroud

Tottenham Hotspur: Lloris (C), Trippier, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Davies, Winks, Sissoko, Eriksen, Lamela, Son, Kane.

Subs: Gazzaniga, Foyth, Aurier, Rose, Wanyama, Lucas, Llorente
