Confirmed - Tottenham Hotspur line-up v Chelsea

Here is how Tottenham line-up for their home clash against Chelsea, kick-off at 12:45.

Starting line-up: Lloris, Walker, Naughton, Dawson, Vertonghen, Paulinho, Dembele, Townsend, Eriksen, Sigurdsson, Soldado

Subs: Friedel, Chirches, Lamela, Holtby, Chadli, Sandro, Defoe

Spurs will be looking to maintain their solid start to the season, staying at least joint top with local rivals Arsenal and a win in this game would mean a fifth straight victory for Andre Villas-Boas’ side.

All the talk in the build up to this game has been about the history between AVB and Jose Mourinho with the pair exchanging blows in the media.

Villas-Boas is the rising star to Mourinho’s white dwarf

Tottenham fans should be confident because the side is yet to drop points at home this season in the league and are yet to concede a goal in front of their own fans.

Tottenham will be looking for revenge after they suffered a 4-2 defeat in this game last season. If the home side manage to win this game then it will level the victories between the sides from matches at White Hart Lane.

What’s your prediction for the game?
