Antonio Conte has named his Tottenham Hotspur side which will take to the field in this afternoon’s Premier League clash against Chelsea.

Tottenham make the short trip across London to Stamford Bridge for their first away fixture in the top flight this season.

Antonio Conte’s side have spent big this summer and will face their first real test of the campaign having comfortably beaten Southampton 4-1 last weekend.

Chelsea are unbeaten in seven games against their London rivals (W6 D1), conceding only one goal in that run.  Spurs have won just one of their last 37 away matches against Chelsea in all competitions (D12 L24), a 3-1 win in April 2018 in the Premier League.

Oliver Skipp (foot) and Clement Lenglet (adductor) were both ruled out of selection earlier this week (BBC).
