The predicted Chelsea line up vs Tottenham on Saturday is expected to see a familiar XI to the one that started against Everton before the international break. However, with a lingering doubt surrounding the availability of Mateo Kovacic, it’s expected that Ross Barkley will slot in, with the Croat potentially on the bench.
The minimum aim at Wembley for Sarri and his team will be to stretch the Premier League unbeaten run to 13 games, as they take on a Spurs side who are enjoying their best ever start to a Premier League campaign.
The big doubt ahead of kick-off is that of Mateo Kovacic who is carrying a muscle injury, but having trained with the Blues yesterday, the Real Madrid-loanee is at least expected to find his way onto the substitutes bench.
Although he was never going to start, Chelsea’s only ruled out player is Welsh international Ethan Ampadu who pulled out of the national team due to an injury sustained against Denmark.
CFCnet’s predicted Chelsea line up vs Tottenham is expected to see a once again unchanged defence with Antonio Rudiger and David Luiz in the centre, while up-front expect to expect to see Willian, Eden Hazard and Alvaro Morata spear-head the search for goals at Wembley.

Goalkeeper: Kepa Arrizabalaga
