Chelsea fans have been given a possible hint at Thomas Tuchel’s team selection for tonight’s clash with Tottenham.
The Blues take on their London rivals at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this evening as they look to make it consecutive wins following victory over Burnley last time out.
Thomas Tuchel is still unbeaten as Chelsea boss, drawing against Wolves in his opener before the Burnley win, and he will be looking to continue that here in what is a huge game for his side.
Chelsea and Spurs sit side-by-side in the Premier League table with just goal difference between them, though Jose Mourinho’s men do have a game in hand.

But he was handed a start under Tuchel last time out, in the win over Burnley, returning to his favoured wing-back role with the German boss later saying: “I know Marcos is used to playing this role, on the left side all alone and he has a good timing for arriving in the box.
“In the end we are very happy he could score the second goal to finish the game.
