Confirmed – Chelsea v Tottenham Hotspur line-ups

Here is how Chelsea and Spurs line up for the crucial match in the race for the top four, kick-off from Stamford Bridge at 19:45 GMT.

Chelsea: Cech, Azpilicueta, Ivanovic, Cahill, Cole, Ramires, David Luiz, Oscar, Mata, Hazard, Torres.

Subs: Turnbull, Terry, Lampard, Ake, Moses, Benayoun, Ba.

Tottenham Hotspur: Lloris, Walker, Dawson, Vertonghen, Assou-Ekotto, Lennon, Huddlestone, Parker, Holtby, Adebayor, Bale.

Subs: Friedel, Caulker, Naughton, Carroll, Dempsey, Sigurdsson, Defoe.

Chelsea go into the game with a very strong home record this season. They have only been defeated at Stamford Bridge on two occasions, drawing four matches and winning 11. They also come off the back of that away win against Manchester United which should fill them with confidence.

Tottenham have been very inconsistent away from home dropping points on eight different occasions while winning nine matches. However, if they can defend well, they have a great attack on the road with only Manchester United and Liverpool scoring more away goals this season.

What is your prediction?
