Confirmed Teams: Tottenham Hotspur vs Chelsea | Premier League
Chelsea face Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League and the confirmed team news is in from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Graham Potter’s side are hoping to claim their first win in six matches in all competitions following a run of three draws and two defeats, which have come against Borussia Dortmund and Southampton.
Chelsea are currently in 10th place in the Premier League and make the trip from west to north London bidding to close the 11 point gap to Spurs, who currently occupy the final Champions League qualification spot, in the hope – which is increasingly slim right now – of securing top-tier European football next season.

Potter still has the support of his players and most importantly, the board despite the recent run of form, revealing pre-match: “If I felt that I had lost the changing room… if I felt there was a bad feeling in Cobham, my feeling would be different. But the one-to-one chats I’ve had with pretty much all the players, there’s incredible support there.”
The 47-year-old has demanded his team respond to the defeat to bottom-of-the-table Southampton last weekend, which saw them booed off at Stamford Bridge, asking for their first away league win since October.
He added: “A strong performance. We need three points. It’s a game we’re looking forward too. Training and response been really good.”
