Kieran Trippier has recovered from an ankle injury in time to start for Tottenham against Chelsea.

Spurs face last season’s champions in the first ever Premier League game to be played at Wembley.

It looks like Mauricio Pochettino has opted for a 3-4-2-1 formation, with Ben Davies and the returning Trippier in the wing-back positions.

A back three of Eric Dier, Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen will sit in front of captain Hugo Lloris in goal.

Victor Wanyama makes his first start of the season in central midfield next to Victor Wanyama.

Lone striker Harry Kane is supported by Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen in attack.

Kyle Walker-Peters and Moussa Sissoko are the unlucky individuals to lose their places in the side. They’re both on the bench, as are Michel Vorm, Kevin Wimmer, Harry Winks, Heung-Min Son and Vincent Janssen.

There’s no place in the Chelsea squad for Eden Hazard despite rumours he could return from injury early.
