Jose Mourinho returns to Stamford Bridge once again, this time leading arch-rivals Spurs who boat top spot before the weekend kick-offs. Bragging rights and the potential for a blockbuster showdown awaits in this Premier League derby, so how could Chelsea line up against Tottenham?
Frank Lampard has seen Chelsea ‘click’ in recent weeks, with the Blues rocketing up the table and just two points off first in the Premier League. With a settled side, goals and a mean looking defence, could we see the Blues top of the table come the final whistle on Saturday?
The big injury news is that Christian Pulisic is likely to be fit enough to return to the Chelsea line up vs Tottenham. Having stayed back in midweek to focus on some final preparations, Lampard may unleash the US international having gone the distance against Rennes in the Champions League.
Kai Havertz and Thiago Silva both missed last weekend’s Premier League victory, and both are surely set for starting spots in the Chelsea line up on Saturday.
Another boost for the Blues ahead of the London derby is that Tottenham are in-action on Thursday, leaving Mourinho’s men one day less of preparation for the trip to Stamford Bridge.
