Picking the Best Potential Tottenham Lineup to Face Chelsea in the Premier League on Saturday

3 min


Tottenham have faced off against Chelsea 20 times across all competitions since 2010, winning just four times in comparison to the Blues’ nine.

Spurs do have the wind in their sails, however, ahead of Saturday’s heavyweight clash as they’re on a four game winning streak, while Chelsea failed to beat Everton in their last Premier League outing.

A win for Tottenham will see them leapfrog Chelsea in the table.

1. Goalkeeper & Defenders

Hugo Lloris (GK) – Tottenham and France’s number one, who overtook legend Fabien Barthez as the standalone Les Bleus’ goalkeeper with the most wins under his belt for his country.

Kieran Trippier (RB) – Despite pulling out of international duty with injury, Trippier could return just in time for Chelsea’s visit.

Toby Alderweireld (CB) – The Belgian will keep his place in Tottenham’s starting lineup this weekend.

Davinson Sánchez (CB) – The last game’s match winner Juan Foyth should be dropped in favour of the returning Sánchez.

Ben Davies (LB) – He’s played every single minute of their last six games across all competitions.

2. Midfielders

Eric Dier (CM) – After being an unused substitute against Crystal Palace, Dier should come back into the side to add some extra steel to their midfield.

Victor Wanyama (CM) – The Kenya international will have to take on the ‘N’Golo Kante’ role against Chelsea, breaking up their play and preventing Jorginho from getting a foothold in the match.

Dele Alli (CM) – He’s set for a third appearance at Wembley in the span of just 10 days.

3. Forwards

Christian Eriksen (RW) – He was rested against Crystal Palace, but the Dane should feature out wide for Spurs as he will be given the licence to roam around the final third, attempting to disrupt Chelsea’s positioning.

Lucas Moura (LW) – The Brazilian will retain his place from their last match, although Heung-min Son and Érik Lamela will also be knocking on the door for a starting spot.

Harry Kane (ST) – Harry Kane hasn’t scored against Chelsea since the 2015/16 season, but it isn’t going to be Fernando Llorente leading the line, is it
