Jose Mourinho has confirmed his starting XI for Tottenham’s Premier League clash against former side Chelsea on Sunday.

With Hugo Lloris (illness) passed fit, the Spurs boss has made just one change to the side that started the win over Manchester City – which means Tanguy Ndombele is the only player to start all three matches over the previous week, after his 60-cameo in midweek.

That alteration sees Joe Rodon handed his full Premier League debut in place of Toby Alderweireld, who misses the game at Stamford Bridge with a muscle problem he sustained against City.

Rodon has made two appearances since making the Deadline Day switch from Swansea City, but this will undoutabtly be the biggest test of his club career.

It means that Serge Aurier is preferred to Matt Doherty, whilst Steven Bergwijn keeps his place ahead of Lucas Moura and Gareth Bale, who’re on the bench and will support the inform Heung Min Son and Harry Kane in attack.

As is Carlos Vinicius, despite his two-goal performance against Ludogorets on Thursday, whilst Japhet Tanganga, Doherty, Harry Winks and Dele Alli have all been left out.

  1. The anti Tottenham. 39% possession, just ugly again. Without having the ball the refs still managed to give 21 free kicks to Jose’s boys to just 6 for Chelsea…4-1 in bookings in ENIC fc favour too. Extraordinary bias.
