Mauricio Pochettino has picked his Tottenham Hotspur team for this evening’s Premier League clash against Chelsea.
As expected, Tottenham are without the services of Mousa Dembele, Kieran Trippier, Davinson Sanchez and Danny Rose for the London derby at Wembley.
This will be the seventh meeting between Tottenham and Chelsea at Wembley Stadium – Chelsea have beaten Spurs four times, more than any club has beaten another at the ground.
However, Spurs fans should look on the positive side, having won three of their last seven Premier League games against Chelsea, as many as they’d won in their previous 49 top-flight games against the Blues (W3 D18 L28).
A win for Mauricio Pochettino’s side this evening would condemn Maurizio Sarri to his first league defeat since taking over the Stamford Bridge outfit in the summer.
This is who starts:
Tottenham Hotspur: Lloris (C), Aurier, Alderweireld, Foyth, Davies, Dier, Sissoko, Eriksen, Dele, Son, Kane
Subs: Gazzaniga, Vertonghen, Walker-Peters, Winks, Lamela, Lucas, Llorente
Chelsea: Kepa, Rudiger, Alonso, Azpilicueta, Luiz, Kovacic, Kante, Jorginho, Willian, Morata, Hazard
Subs: Caballero, Zappacosta, Christensen, Barkley, Fabregas, Pedro, Giroud.
