Predicted Spurs lineup vs Chelsea

Tottenham Hotspur will be eyeing a fifth Premier League win under Jose Mourinho when Chelsea make the short trip to their stadium on Sunday.

Spurs have won four of their five league games since Mourinho took charge of the club and they are currently within three points off fourth-placed Chelsea.

As such, the north London club have a brilliant chance to jump into the Champions League places, should they beat their cross-town rivals in their homeground later in the day.

Formation: 4-3-3

Predicted Lineup:

Hugo Lloris continues to be sidelined with his elbow injury and that should see Paulo Gazzaniga retain his spot between the sticks. The Argentine will be hoping for more assistance from his backline, having kept the solitary clean sheet in the league this term.

In the backline, Jose Mourinho should stick with an unchanged lineup from recent league games. Serge Aurier and Jan Vertonghen, who scored the winning strike at Wolves, should continue in the right and left-back spots respectively. Davinson Sanchez and Toby Alderweireld are set to occupy the central defence.

In the centre of the park, Tanguy Ndombele could make his comeback after Jose Mourinho confirmed that he has recovered from his groin problem. The Frenchman could be accompanied by compatriot Moussa Sissoko and the duo will need to play at their best to outwit the Blues' midfield consisting of Mateo Kovacic, who has been in sublime touch this term.

In the attack front, Mourinho should stick with the same personnel from recent weeks. Heung-min Son and Lucas Moura should slot into the left and right wing positions respectively. Dele Alli, who has netted five goals in his last four meetings against Chelsea, should feature in the number 10 position with Harry Kane expected to lead the line.

Predicted Tottenham Hotspur lineup: Paulo Gazzaniga, Serge Aurier, Toby Alderweireld, Davinson Sanchez, Jan Vertonghen, Moussa Sissoko, Tanguy Ndombele, Lucas Moura, Dele Alli, Heung-min Son, Harry Kane
