Predicted Tottenham Hotspur lineup (4-2-3-1) vs Chelsea, Kane and Bale start
Tottenham Hotspur have the opportunity to leapfrog Liverpool to the top of the Premier League table when they face Chelsea on the road today.
Spurs are currently second with 20 points after nine games and they can reclaim their top spot with a minimum of a draw against the Blues.
Hugo Lloris will definitely start as the goalkeeper and the captain of the side. The Frenchman will be aiming to keep his fourth clean sheet of the campaign.
In the backline, there will be an enforced change with centre-back Tony Alderweireld out injured with a groin concern. Davinson Sanchez is the likely candidate to partner Eric Dier at the heart of the defence.
Elsewhere, Serge Aurier and Sergio Reguilon are expected to continue in the right and left-back positions respectively ahead of Matt Doherty and Ben Davies, who filled in during the midweek Europa League clash.
In the midfield, no changes are expected. Moussa Sissoko and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg are set to keep their midfield positions alongside Tanguy Ndombele, who is likely to play in the more advanced role.
Son Heung-min should return to the left wing after featuring in the opposite flank against Manchester City. That could present a chance for Jose Mourinho to start Gareth Bale on the right side of the attack.
Upfront, Harry Kane is a definite starter. The England international has been in stunning form this term. He has registered a superb tally of seven goals and nine assists from just nine appearances.
Predicted Tottenham lineup (4-2-3-1): Hugo Lloris; Serge Aurier, Davinson Sanchez, Eric Dier, Sergio Reguilon; Moussa Sissoko, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg; Gareth Bale, Tanguy Ndombele, Heung-min Son; Harry Kane
