Predicted Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea line-ups: One change for Pochettino

Tottenham WHL

Match to be played on Thursday 1st January 2015 at 17:30. Venue: White Hart Lane, London.

Tottenham Hotspur will be confident of getting a result heading into the London derby against Chelsea after a gritty and determined performance against Manchester United.

Spurs owe a lot to their goalkeeper Hugo Lloris for keeping them in the game against United and they’ll now be looking to put at least another point on the board and take a little pressure off the Frenchman.

Chelsea are the team to beat in the Premier League this season. They’ll be determined to defend their position at the top of the table and Jose Mourinho has top quality options if he wants to rotate his squad and keep things fresh.

This match also represents an opportunity for Chelsea to make a point against a side battling to get into the Champions League at the moment. The away side may be slight favourites but Spurs always raise themselves for this fixture.

Here are the potential teams that each manager could go with.

Tottenham Hotspur: Lloris, Walker, Fazio, Vertonghen, Davies, Stambouli, Mason, Townsend, Eriksen, Lamela, Kane

Chelsea: Courtois, Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta, Mikel, Matic, Fabregas, Willian, Hazard, Costa
