Confirmed Chelsea XI vs Tottenham as Pochettino makes three changes from Brentford and strong Reece James call

Chelsea are without Trevoh Chalobah, Carney Chukwuemeka, Ben Chilwell, Wesley Fofana, Romeo Lavia and Christopher Nkunku for this game.

Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino will hope that his return to N17 is a happy one for him as he looks for only his fourth league win of the season.

The Blues have only beaten Luton, Fulham and Burnley but their best performances have come against teams like Liverpool and Arsenal.

There is however good news with Chelsea having a great record against the Lilywhites- they have won four games since Tottenham moved to this new stadium, no team has won more here and Pochettino will hope his side finally dominate games and win them.

There is so much rivalry at stake tonight from Pochettino’s return to a place he called home all the way to both teams needing three points for different reasons.

Spurs remain the only unbeaten side in the league after Arsenal lost to Newcastle in controversial circumstances so there is added pressure to keep that run going as much as possible.

Chelsea know that they will get their season back on track if they can get all three points that will remind all that when their project finally kicks off it will be one of the best teams.

So with all that in mind, this is the team Mauricio Pochettino has put out:
