Predicted Chelsea lineup (3-4-2-1) vs Tottenham Hotspur, Alonso and Giroud start
Chelsea are scheduled to face Tottenham Hotspur on the road in tonight's Premier League clash.
The Blues are currently eighth on the table with 33 points, but they can break into the top six with a victory over their London rivals.
Edouard Mendy has been the go-to choice for the Blues in goal. He has kept nine clean sheets and only Emiliano Martinez and Ederson have done better than him.
In the backline, manager Thomas Tuchel should continue with a three-man combination. The experienced trio of Cesar Azpilicueta, Thiago Silva and Antonio Rudiger should keep their places.
Callum Hudson-Odoi has been a revelation from the right wing-back role and he should start ahead of Reece James once more. Marcos Alonso featured in his preferred left wing-back spot against Burnley after not playing a single minute for four months.
He made an instant impact with a goal and is expected to keep his place tonight. The Spaniard has an excellent record against Spurs and he has bagged three goals and an assist in his previous six meetings.
In the midfield, the Blues should welcome N'Golo Kante to the starting lineup after his lay-off due to a hamstring injury. He is likely to be accompanied by Jorginho with Tuchel often in favour of two defensive midfielders.
In the attack, Mason Mount and Timo Werner should continue behind the main striker. However, there could be a change up front with Olivier Giroud featuring ahead of Tammy Abraham.
Predicted Chelsea lineup (4-3-3): Mendy; Azpilicueta, Silva, Rudiger; Hudson-Odoi, Jorginho, Kante, Alonso; Mount, Werner; Giroud
