Tottenham will aim to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League when they face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

With a couple of injury problems, Jose Mourinho has a few decisions to make regarding his team selection.

The biggest question mark is at centre-back. Toby Alderweireld is sidelined, so Mourinho must decide between Davinson Sanchez, Japhet Tanganga and Joe Rodon to partner Eric Dier. We think Rodon will make his first Premier League start, given that Sanchez and Tanganga played on Thursday night.

In midfield, Giovani Lo Celso missed the victory over Ludogorets with a knock, so Tanguy Ndombele should keep his place alongside Moussa Sissoko and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.

Gareth Bale was substituted early on Thursday but he’s unlikely to start on Sunday. Steven Bergwijn, who proved useful against Manchester City, will probably line up alongside Son Heung-min and Harry Kane.

Erik Lamela is a doubt but Mourinho will still have plenty of options to make an impact from the bench, including Lucas Moura and Carlos Vinicius.
