The Chelsea vs Spurs live stream will see the London rivals resume hostilities for the third time in a month, and the fourth time this season overall. Will familiarity breed contempt?
Spurs arrive at Stamford Bridge buoyed by their dramatic late win over Leicester City in the week which saw them score two goals in 80 injury time seconds. It meant they remain unbeaten in the Premier League under manager Antonio Conte. However, Spurs will not be able to draw much on recent matches against Chelsea. They were resoundingly beaten in both legs of the sides’ Carabao Cup semi-final, having already lost the return league fixture.
Chelsea put in a rather limp performance against Manchester City last weekend in the Premier League, and Brighton deserved their midweek point against the European Champions, who stumbled once again. Nobody doubts the quality of summer signing Romelu Lukaku, but the Belgian striker has yet to recreate his form for Inter Milan in Serie A on his return to the Premier League. He will, though, have a good chance to refind his scoring boots against a Tottenham Hotspur defence that is still without Cristian Romero. Eric Dier is available once again, however, and plays today.
Tottenham will also have Son Heung-Min out due to an injury, seriously denting their attacking artillery. This gives Dutch forward Steven Bergwijn a chance to recreate his heroics from Wednesday night. Another who made an impact off the bench was wingback Matt Doherty. He has had a poor time since joining Spurs from Wolves, but replaced Emerson Royal at half-time and gave his team a better attacking option down the right. He starts today.
Chelsea have significant injury worries too, not least star fullbacks Reece James and Ben Chillwell, who remain sidelined. The two are key to how Chelsea play and their long absence has definitely hampered the team’s title challenge. Fellow defender Trevor Chalobah is with them on the treatment table. Goalkeeper Edouard Mendy is with the Senegal national team, who have qualified for the next stage of the African Cup of Nations. Manager Thomas Tuchel has regularly commented that his charges are tired in recent weeks.
Here's how they line up:
Chelsea: Arrizabalaga, Sarr, Rudiger, Silva, Azpilicueta, Mount, Jorginho, Kovacic, Ziyech, Lukaku, Hudson-Odoi.
Spurs: Lloris, Doherty, Davies, Sanchez, Tanganga, Dier, Hojbjerg, Winks, Sessegnon, Bergwijn, Kane.
