Predicted Tottenham line-up to play Chelsea: Young sensation and under-rated midfielder start

Here is how we predict Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur will line up next week:

To be played on Monday 2nd May 2016 at 20:00. Venue: Stamford Bridge, London

Odds: Chelsea 7/4, Draw 5/2, Tottenham 6/4

Tottenham Hotspur travel to Stamford Bridge on Monday evening to take on Chelsea in their latest Premier League clash.

By that time Spurs may have already seen Leicester City claim the Premier League crown, depending on how things go at Old Trafford when the Foxes take on Manchester United 24 hours earlier.

However, if Spurs are still in with a shot of winning the prize they will head to Chelsea with confidence high.

Spurs are currently seven points behind Leicester at the top of the table while Chelsea are ninth, having turned things around since replacing Jose Mourinho with interim coach Guus Hiddink.

That said, the damage was done in those opening months and Chelsea will have to make do without European football for at least one season.

In early team news, Chelsea are without Thibaut Courtois, Kurt Zouma, John Terry and Loic Remy, while Gary Cahill is a minor doubt but is rated at 75 per cent to be ready if called upon.

As for Tottenham, their manager Mauricio Pochettino cannot call on Nabil Bentaleb but has an otherwise clean bill of health, with midfielder Eric Dier expected to recover from concussion in time for this clash, and Ryan Mason could fill Dele Alli's place, with the England ace suspended.
