Chelsea face Tottenham Hotspur at The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in just under an hour, and the teams are in!
The big change is at the back, where Kepa Arrizabalaga starts in place of Edu Mendy – who we can only assume is injured. We will hopefully get more information from Thomas Tuchel ahead of kickoff.
Reece James drops out of the team, with Cesar Azpilicueta moving to right wing back, and Thiago Silva playing in a back three with Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger.
Up front, the undroppable Romelu Lukaku leads the line, flanked by Kai Havertz and Mason Mount. Tottenham’s side is weakened by injury, and we fancy our chances against Nuno’s new team.
Let’s hope Kepa is ready for this unexpected chance – a change in goal can destabilise a whole team, and that’s the last thing we need.
Here are the full team line-ups for Chelsea vs Tottenham (kick off at 16:30 pm GMT)
