Dier and Doherty start but Bergwijn on the bench: Possible Spurs XI vs Chelsea



Tottenham will face Chelsea for the third time this month when they travel to Stamford Bridge in the Premier League this weekend, and Antonio Conte has a number of decisions to make regarding his team selection.

Eric Dier trained this week and is contention. The centre-back should start in a back three with Ben Davies and Davinson Sanchez in front of Hugo Lloris, who signed a new contract this week.

Conte then must choose between 3-4-3 or 3-5-2. He might be tempted to go 3-4-3 and play Steven Bergwijn after his incredible cameo against Leicester, but we think Conte will stick with 3-5-2 to try and repeat the control Spurs had at the King Power.

That means Harry Winks, Oliver Skipp and Piece-Emile Hojbjerg will all start again, providing support for the front two of Harry Kane and Lucas Moura.

Sergio Reguilon will play down the left, while Matt Doherty may well have done enough in midweek to keep Emerson Royal out of the team on the opposite flank.

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