Predicted Tottenham XI to face Chelsea in the Premier League – Bale benched again

Tottenham Hotspur face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge this weekend in the Premier League, a stadium that has been far from a happy hunting ground for the Lilywhites in recent years.

Off the back of the impressive win over Man City last week, we expect Jose Mourinho to name as close to an unchanged line-up as he can on Sunday.

Toby Alderweireld is forced out with injury and so new signing, Joe Rodon comes in to make his first start for the club since signing from Swansea in the summer.

Hugo Lloris returns between the sticks after missing out against Ludogorets, while Eric Dier, Serge Aurier, and Sergio Reguilon all retain their starting spots from the Man City win.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Moussa Sissoko remain the big-game central duo as Mourinho will look to shield his defence from a potent Chelsea attack force.

Tanguy Ndombele once again steps into the creative midfield role, looking to pick out the runs of Harry Kane, Heung-min Son, and Steven Bergwijn up ahead.
