Chelsea head into the London derby against Tottenham this weekend having won their sixth game in a row against Rennes during the week. However, they will be facing a Spurs team on Sunday who are flying high at the top of the table following last weekend’s win over Manchester City.
In terms of team news, the Blues will be able to welcome back Christian Pulisic who has recovered from a hamstring problem. That means manager Frank Lampard could have a fully fit squad for the first time this season.
Spurs do have a few more fitness issues. Erik Lamela (foot), Matt Doherty (virus), Harry Winks (knock) and Japhet Tanganga (thigh) are all doubts, while Toby Alderweireld (adductor) has been ruled out.
At the bookmakers, Chelsea are the favourites with Betfred pricing them at 11/10 for the win. A draw is 13/5 with Sky Bet while a Spurs victory is currently 11/4 at Unibet.
Predicted Score – 1-0 to Chelsea
