Chelsea are back in action this evening when they face rivals Tottenham away from home in a mouth-watering London derby.
The two sides are now only goal difference apart in the table – albeit Spurs have a game in hand – and Chelsea will be keen to continue their resurgence under Thomas Tuchel by leapfrogging their rivals by making it consecutive wins.
The Blues beat Burnley last time out in what was a thorough performance and the first win of Tuchel’s time at the club following a draw with Wolves in his opener.
Tuchel has taken over a very strong Chelsea squad and he is also lucky enough to have inherited a largely fit one with few injury concerns ahead of the Spurs clash.

Though, he has been dealt two fresh injury concerns with Kai Havertz and Kurt Zouma. Take a look on our round-up below.
Kante had missed Chelsea’s last three games due to suspension and a hamstring injury.
And while he didn’t feature in the win over Burnely, he did make the bench, suggesting he is fit to play against Spurs.
Given Chelsea were already ahead, Tuchel had no real reason to change his midfield or to risk bringing on Kante.
He will be pleased to get the Frenchman back ahead of the Spurs fixture, but it will be interesting to see whether he changes a winning midfield.
Midfielder Hakim Ziyech was absent for the Burnley clash, leading to concern from supporters over a possible injury.
