Tottenham vs Chelsea prediction – Premier League

Tottenham Hotspur will face Chelsea in an exciting London derby in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon. The Blues began their Champions League defense with a 1-0 victory over Zenit St Petersburg, while the hosts drew 2-2 with Rennes in the Europa Conference League. Here is everything you need to know about Tottenham vs Chelsea football prediction, team news, and lineup for the Premier League match of the season.

Team news

Tottenham

Last week Japhet Tanganga has been suspended following his red card against Crystal Palace.

At the heart of the defense alongside Davinson Sanchez, Cristian Romero could make his full debut with Eric Dier doubtful.

In the first half of Tottenham’s Europa League match, Steven Bergwijn hobbled off against Rennes on Thursday and is unlikely to play again. Lucas Moura is also a question mark.

Son Heung-Min and Ryan Sessegnon will also be evaluated, but Tanguy Ndombele made his season debut in France and is a viable option.

In the 1-0 Champions League win over Zenit in midweek N’Golo Kante was absent but he could be available for Thomas Tuchel here.

Reece James returns from suspension to compete for the Blues, but Christian Pulisic is out.

Kai Havertz could replace Hakim Ziyech, who managed to play on Tuesday.

Tottenham vs Chelsea Prediction

On Saturday, Tottenham’s unblemished start to the league season came to an end at Crystal Palace. On the other hand, a second successive London derby at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium should provide plenty of motivation for Spurs.

Chelsea could continue their unbeaten streak on Sunday afternoon. In the last three trips to London the Blues have been unbeaten having won the previous two league meetings between the two on Spurs’ turf. 

If Santo’s first-choice backline is available, it’s difficult to see Chelsea scoring multiple goals in the capital, but the visitors’ tenacious defense should shine through as they scrape a narrow win at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Lineup

Tottenham Hotspur possible starting lineup: Lloris; Emerson, Sanchez, Romero, Reguilon; Hojbjerg, Skipp; Gil, Alli, Son; Kane

Chelsea possible starting lineup: Mendy; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger; James, Jorginho, Kovacic, Alonso; Mount, Havertz; Lukaku
