Tottenham will hope to end their recent bad run against Chelsea when they host the Blues in North London later today.

The Lilywhites are without a win against the Chelsea in their last eight attempts but come into this game as favourites.

Tottenham have no fresh injury concerns with the only players missing out being long-term absentee Yves Bissouma, Rodrigo Bentancur, Hugo Lloris and Ryan Sessegnon. Lucas Moura, who has been out for large parts of the season, is now ready and working his way back into games.

Chelsea will be without captain Cesar Azpilicueta following his head injury against Southampton. Midfielder N’Golo Kante is back in training as is forward Christian Pulisic but this might be too soon for both of them.

All of Harry Kane’s last 11 goals have come at Tottenham Stadium and he will be aiming to become only the first player to score home and away against Chelsea in a Premier League season since Gary Lineker. Pierre-Emile Højbjerg could also bag that having scored in the first leg.

Tottenham manager Antonio Conte is still in Italy recovering from his gallbladder operation, so Cristian Stellini will deputise for him again. He has a 100% winning record stepping in for the boss, three wins at Inter Milan and three here at Tottenham.

Chelsea manager Graham Potter has two wins from his last 15 games and the home defeat to Southampton has left fans at a tipping point.

The former Brighton and Hove Albion boss desperately needs a win and one against Tottenham will buy him time to be able to implement his long-term ideas with his players.
