The North Londoners will set up in their 4-2-3-1 formation as Hugo Lloris returns to the starting eleven. Serge Aurier will be given the nod to start as the right back. The injury to Toby Alderweireld means that Davinson Sanchez will be given another go. He will be partnered with Eric Dier.

In the left back spot, Reguilon, who has been a revelation since arriving from Real Madrid, will get a start.

The midfield pivot will see Spurs return to a combination that has worked wonders for them this season. Both Moussa Sissoko and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg have played a crucial role in the early season success that the team has enjoyed so far. They complement each other and their talent will be needed to win the all-important midfield battle against Chelsea.

Tanguy Ndombele, who played in the centre on Thursday, will be pushed higher up the pitch this time. His form has been one of the biggest plus points for Spurs this season and it shows why they spent so much money bringing him in from Lyon last summer.

He will be flanked by Lucas Moura and Heung-min Son. The latter has been an electrifying presence in the Premier League and is one of the biggest threats that the hosts will have to deal with on Sunday.

Harry Kane will lead the line and be the focal point of the Spurs attack. He is known for his goals, but his assists have also come to the fore this season. The Englishman’s playmaking ability makes him one of the most lethal players on the pitch.

For Tottenham to continue their League form, the onus will be on Son and Kane. If these two can find each other on a regular basis, Chelsea will be in danger of losing the game.

Predicted Tottenham Starting XI Against Chelsea (4-2-3-1):

Hugo Lloris, Serge Aurier, Davinson Sanchez, Eric Dier, Reguilon, Moussa Sissoko, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Lucas Moura, Tanguy Ndombele, Heung-min Son, Harry Kane

    We can get something out of this game if our players defend resiliently. I predicted Chelsea will beat us at their home ground and bag the 3 points to go above us in the table. But if we don’t concede an early goal or 2, we can get a score draw. What I want to say is that we need to win the first ball back quick and sharp if we will to lose possession in the first place. In other words, our players need to act faster than them on the first ball and release to our up front strikers in order to score. It’s a different opponents at all compared to the ManC game and the Chelsea players won’t let us have a breather on the ball. My prediction is 3:2 or 2:1 to Chelsea. Fingers crossed that I hope I am wrong. COYS, show us your true
    colour and your fighting/never give up spirit and bring the 3 points home! If you can hear me….
