I feel sorry for anyone who now has to select a predicted line up for Chelsea under Thomas Tuchel.
The new Blues head coach has been known to switch things up and make surprising tweaks to his formation and line up, so predicting it is almost impossible.
Strained relations, ruthlessness, week of turmoil, a tactical genius, and new reign – Just a few words that feature in my dramatic latest Chelsea FC Newsletter #Issue12 – Read HERE!
However, we have seen him line up with a 3-4-2-1 in the last two matches, so we are assuming he will stick with this against Tottenham tonight.
It is a game that is rightfully labelled a six-pointer, with both clubs being on 33 points and 7th and 8th spot in the Premier League. It is a big game for both sides.
I believe we will see the same back 3, but N’Golo Kante could come back into the starting eleven, as well as Christian Pulisic.
Kai Havertz and Kurt Zouma are the only injuries.
“We have two small injury issues with Kurt Zouma and Kai Havertz and it is questionable if they are in the squad tomorrow. Everyone else is available.”

(3-4-2-1) – Mendy, Azpilicueta, Silva, Rudiger. Hudson-Odoi, Kante, Kovacic, Alonso. Mount, Pulisic. Werner.
