Raheem Sterling To Start; Levi Colwill And Christopher Nkunku On The Bench: Chelsea’s Predicted XI To Face Spurs

Raheem Sterling (back), captain Reece James (hamstring), Levi Colwill (toe) and Christopher Nkunku (hamstring) have all been taking part in sessions this week ahead of the London derby against Tottenham.

Considering the length of time some of those players have been out (especially James), you wouldn’t expect them to be involved from the start on Thursday evening but they could make the matchday squad.
