Spurs started the Premier League season winning their first three games, but things have gone awry since then. A bad 3-0 defeat, and even worse performance, against Crystal Palace in the Premier League, combined with an unimpressive 2-2 draw at French side Rennes in the Europa Conference, means much of the early season positivity has been eroded.
Chelsea, meanwhile, are riding high. Newly returned forward Romelu Lukaku is in seemingly unstoppable form. The only game the Stamford Bridge side have failed to win so far this season was a very creditable draw away to Liverpool, during which they spent most of the match with 10 men.
Spurs are also undergoing something of a selection crisis. Steven Bergwijn and Lucas Moura are injured, while Japhet Tangaga is suspended following his red card at Selhurst Park last weekend. However, Eric Dier and Heung Min Son were both passed fit and start here. Cristian Romero and Giovanni Lo Celso are also both back in the side following their Covid-related quarantine.
Things are much simpler in the Chelsea camp. N’Golo Kante is only able to make the bench, with Mateo Kovacic continuing to deputize. Reece James is also among the substitutes, having served his suspension for that red card against Liverpool.
Goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga gets a rare start ahead of Edouard Mendy, while Andreas Christensen, Jorginho, Mason Mount and Cesar Azpilicueta all return to the team.
Here's how they line up:
Tottenham Hotspur: Lloris, Leite de Souza Junior, Romero, Dier, Reguilón, Ndombele, Højbjerg, Alli, Lo Celso, Kane, Son Heung-Min
Chelsea: Arrizabalaga, Christensen, Thiago Silva, Rüdiger, Azpilicueta, Jorginho, Kovacic, Alonso, Mount, Havertz, Lukaku
