Chelsea take on Tottenham in their next Premier League match on Sunday afternoon.
This game always carries heaps of history along with it and a fierce local rivalry. But there is added substance to this one due to the fact that former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is now managing Spurs.

He is up against his former player Frank Lampard, and both of these guys will desperately want to win this one, make no mistake.
This is why I believe that Lampard will go with a strong starting line up and use the formation he is really starting to gain confidence with.
The game might come too soon for Christian Pulisic to start, but I believe Kai Havertz will be back in the starting eleven once again.
The strongest back four picks itself, and I think N’Golo Kante continues in the holding role.
Predicted Chelsea Xl –
(4-3-3): Mendy, James, Zouma, Silva, Chilwell. Kante, Mount, Havertz. Werner, Abraham, Ziyech.
