Opinion: Best combined Tottenham and Chelsea XI ahead of the London derby

Tottenham Hotspur take on Chelsea this weekend in the latest London derby between the two sides which will see Jose Mourinho returning to his old stomping ground.

However, what would a dream team look like if the two enemies came together as one? We wanted to take a look at a potential Spurs-Chelsea combined XI.

With his recent troubles, Kepa is edged out by the veteran Hugo Lloris between the sticks.

Will full-backs not being the strongest part of either team, we have done away with them and gone for a back three of Cesar Azpilicueta, Davinson Sanchez, and up-and-coming Japhet Tanganga.

Kane acts as the deep-lying midfield shield to the back three, with Ndombele and Jorginho a little further forward to pull the strings.

Heung-min Son and Giovani Lo Celso occupy left and right midfield, with Kane dropping back into a number 10 role and Tammy Abraham leading the line in attack.

What do you think? What changes would you make?
