Team News
Chelsea have been boosted by the news that Trevor Chalobah and Reece James have both returned to training following recent injuries, but neither player will be considered for selection this weekend.

Ben Chilwell is out for the remainder of the season following knee surgery, while Andreas Christensen (COVID-19) and Edouard Mendy (international duty) will again miss out for the home side.

Tuchel has a number of big decisions to make when it comes to his team selection, and there is a chance that a return to a back three could open the door for Malang Sarr to feature, while Timo Werner and Mateo Kovacic, who were substitutes against Brighton, could be in line for starting roles this weekend.
Chelsea possible starting lineup:
Kepa; Sarr, Silva, Rudiger; Azpilicueta, Kante, Kovacic, Alonso; Mount, Lukaku, Werner

Tottenham Hotspur
As for Spurs, Eric Dier is available for selection once again following injury, but Son Heung-min and Cristian Romero will be absent until after the winter break.

Conte has admitted that his side have a couple of "fresh injuries" but has not named those impacted, with the Italian needing to assess the fitness of his squad following the Leicester clash.

Bergwijn could again miss out on a spot in the XI despite his brace against the Foxes, with Lucas Moura expected to feature alongside Harry Kane in a front two, while a midfield five may include both Harry Winks and Oliver Skipp; Dier should also be back in defence, potentially replacing Japhet Tanganga.
Tottenham Hotspur possible starting lineup:
Lloris; Sanchez, Dier, Davies; Emerson, Skipp, Winks, Hojbjerg, Reguilon; Kane, Lucas

Prediction: Chelsea 1-1 Tottenham Hotspur
