A rotated Spurs side progressed to the FA Cup fourth round with 3-1 comeback win over Morecambe on Sunday. Missing the injured Steven Bergwijn, Eric Dier, Heung-Min Son and Cristian Romero.
They have significantly improved under new coach Antonio Conte. They have registered eight wins, three draws and two defeats in his 13 games in charge.
Tottenham are unbeaten in their last eight Premier League games (5W, 3D). Conte is the first manager in the history of the team to go unbeaten in their opening eight EPL games.
Starting centre-back Romero will miss out again through hamstring injury. Has missed the last 11 duels. Davinson Sanchez is covering for him.
Sometimes starting winger Bergwijn is out through injury.
Big blow, as starting forward Son is out injured. Dele Alli could fill in.
Starting centre-back Dier is sidelined too. Spurs could start with Japhet Tanganga, Davinson Sanchez and Ben Davies at the back.
Big local derby against Chelsea. Spurs haven't won any of their last 10 games against the Blues (3D, 7L).
Chelsea grabbed a comfortable 2-0 home win in the first leg of the League Cup between the two teams.
