Tottenham XI vs Chelsea: Predicted lineup, confirmed team news, injury latest for Premier League
The question this weekend for Tottenham manager Antonio Conte is whether to change a winning team for the visit to his former club Chelsea.
Spurs began the season with a 4-1 win over Southampton without any of their six new signings in the XI.
Conte’s biggest decisions for Sunday are likely to come at wing-back, where Ivan Perisic would be a more experienced pick ahead of Ryan Sessegnon, who scored the equaliser against Saints with his first League goal for the club.
The Italian must also choose between Matt Doherty and Emerson Royal on the opposite flank, while Yves Bissouma is putting pressure on midfield pair Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Rodrigo Bentancur.
Richarlison is available after serving a one-match ban and could make his debut at Stamford Bridge but fellow new signing Clement Lenglet is not available due to fatigue in his adductor.
Oliver Skipp is “a couple of weeks” from fitness due to a hairline fracture in his ankle.
Tottenham predicted XI (3-4-3): Lloris; Romero, Dier, Davies; Emerson, Hojbjerg, Bentancur, Sessegnon; Kulusevski, Son, Kane...TAP..TO.CONTINUE READING.
