Ndombele starts, January signing benched – Possible Spurs XI v Chelsea

Tottenham travel to Chelsea on Saturday aiming to bounce back from the midweek defeat to RB Leipzig in the Champions League.

Moussa Sissoko, Son Heung-min and Harry Kane are all still out, but Jose Mourinho still has a few decisions to make regarding his team selection.

We think there will be just one change from the side that lost to Leipzig. Tanguy Ndombele, who added some drive on Wednesday when he came on, should start with Gedson Fernandes dropping to the bench.

Gedson did a decent job against Leipzig but he might be a better option from the bench at Stamford Bridge, with Ndombele’s dribbling ability needed from the start.

Erik Lamela was also impressive when he was introduced in midweek, but Jose Mourinho has admitted the Argentine wasn’t fully fit – he will be be a useful substitute option again.

That means Steven Bergwijn, Dele Alli and Lucas Moura will be responsible for providing a goal threat. Hopefully Giovanni Lo Celso can help in that regard, too.

Harry Winks will sit in front of a back four of Serge Aurier, Toby Alderweireld, Davinson Sanchez and Ben Davies, with Hugo Lloris between the sticks.

Here’s our predicted XI to face Chelsea – what’s yours? Let us know in the comments section below.

  1. Omit Dele Ali from team today is the best option and let Lamela play
    Let Tangana play instead of Aurier because Aurier is very neglect that mean easy for Willan
    Tangana is good defender and care
