Chelsea VS Tottenham Hotspur
Saturday (26/11/2016)
18:30 (WAT)

Chelsea host London rivals Tottenham on Saturday as both clubs look to claim the London derby bragging rights in a match that was full of drama last season.

The Blues ended Spurs' hopes of winning the Premier League title in May after they came from two goals down to secure a 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge in a match that also produced 12 yellow cards.

Fast-forward six months, and Chelsea now lead the Premier League standings following a remarkable six-game winning run - although Mauricio Pochettino's Spurs side remain the only unbeaten team in the top-flight.

But following Spurs' disappointing Champions League exit in midweek at AS Monaco, Pochettino will be desperate for a better performance against England's in-form team.

But who will come out on top? Here’s the full breakdown ahead of Saturday’s clash at Stamford Bridge…


TEAM NEWS
Conte is expected to stick with the same starting XI that has won the last six league matches, although he won't be able to include captain John Terry or Mikel John Obi in his matchday squad, with the pair having suffered muscular injuries this week.

Spurs will already be without Danny Rose after the full-back picked up his fifth yellow card of the season in the 3-2 win over West Ham at the weekend, while Toby Alderweireld is also out after failing to recover from a nerve injury in his knee.

The puzzle for Pochettino is who should play at left back with Ben Davies also sidelined. Jan Vertonghen was rested in midweek and could play at full back, with Eric Dier and Kevin Wimmer operating in the centre.

That could mean Kurt Zouma returning to the substitutes' bench as defensive cover following his 90 minutes for Chelsea's development squad earlier this week.

For Tottenham though, much like their week in general, the news is less promising.

POSSIBLE STARTING LINE-UPS

Chelsea (3-4-3): Courtois; Azpilicueta, Luiz, Cahill; Moses, Kante, Matic, Alonso; Pedro, Costa, Hazard.

Tottenham (4-1-4-1): Lloris; Walker, Dier, Wimmer, Vertonghen; Wanyama; Sissoko, Dembele, Alli, Son; Kane.

Right now, the momentum is with Chelsea, with Harry Kane being rusty and the other Dutch striker not in form, I don't see Chelsea conceading. It will be tight, but I see Chelsea nicking it by 1 to nill
