3 min

There’s more than just pride on the line when Chelsea travel across town to face Tottenham in a highly anticipated London derby on Saturday.

Maurizio Sarri’s side are still unbeaten and sitting in third, the last place in the table which guarantees automatic qualification to the Champions League.

A win at Wembley would see a four point gap open up between Chelsea and the 17 teams bellow them, while the Blues could even leapfrog Liverpool depending on their result earlier in the day.

1. Goalkeeper & Defenders

Kepa Arrizabalaga (GK) – Summer signing Kepa has started every single Premier League game for Chelsea this season, keeping a clean sheet in exactly half of them.

César Azpilicueta (RB) – Maurizio Sarri’s turned Azpilicueta back into a full-back this season, and it’s working wonders for the west London outfit.

David Luiz (CB) – The Brazilian looked nailed on to leave Chelsea during the summer, but now you can’t imagine Sarri’s team without him.

Antonio Rüdiger (CB) – There are still ares to improve for Rüdiger, but he compliments Luiz perfectly.

Marcos Alonso (LB) – Arguably the best left-back in the league and he loves to play against Tottenham, having scored two goals in this exact fixture last season.

2. Midfielders

N’Golo Kanté (CM) – He picks himself these days, but Kanté’s importance in stopping Spurs’ creative players priding service for Harry Kane can’t be overlooked.

Jorginho (CM) – The Italian has almost single-handedly turned Chelsea into title contenders this season.

Ross Barkley (CM) – Mateo Kovačić is an injury doubt, so Barkley looks set for a second appearance at Wembley in the span of just six days.

3. Forwards

Pedro (RW) – Willian hasn’t been at his best this season and following an ineffective performance against Everton, Sarri could be tempted to rotate.

Eden Hazard (LW) – The Belgian might not have the most goals or assists in the league, but he’s probably still been the player of the season so far.

Álvaro Morata (ST) – After a shocking miss whilst away on international duty, Morata needs to get straight back out there and right the wrongs from the last fortnight with La Roja.
