Chelsea v Tottenham: Predicted lineups
Chelsea are one of only two clubs to have been unbeaten the last six English Premier League rounds and will hope to extend that when Jose Mourinho’s home victory record will once again be on the line.
Tim Sherwood’s Spurs have to come out strong against their hosts and get some early points on the board if they are going to hope to have a chance to slowing down the Blues right now.
Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester City will all hope that Spurs pulls off at least a draw against their hosts as it will give them all a chance to once again close the gap at the top where Chelsea currently sit four points clear and six points clear respectively.
However, Mourinho will look to take a commanding lead into another week off for the Reds while the other sides will be involved in multiple competitions in the next few days.
Tottenham have not managed to win at Stamford Bridge in 24 years and will hope they can snap the streak but are not expected to do so.
Chelsea XI: Cech: Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta; Matic, Ramires; Willian, Oscar, Hazard; Eto’o.
Spurs XI: Lloris: Walker, Dawson, Kaboul, Vertonghen; Paulinho, Sandro, Bentaleb; Dembele, Adebayor, Lennon.
