Tottenham Hotspur Team News, Updates and Facts
Tottenham Team News
Jose Mourinho is missing goalkeeping duo Hugo Lloris and Michel Vorm, midfielder Tanguy Ndombele, left back Ben Davies, and winger Erik Lamela through injuries.
Tottenham Key Man
Harry Kane is the man that usually gets the plaudits, and it’s easy to see why as he has nine goals to his name, but Lucas Moura has to be mentioned as a big time player for Spurs. He doesn’t always play, but he provides goals when he gets an opportunity, doing so last weekend with his fifth goal of the term. In the attack, they have the deadly Son Heung-Min to help create. He’s one of the league’s top assisters, with seven to his name, and he’s also scored five as well.
Tottenham Team Form
Tottenham have three wins and two losses in their last five matches:
1-2 win at Wolves
3-1 loss at Bayern Munich (UCL)
5-0 home win vs Burnley
2-1 loss at Manchester United
3-2 home win vs Bournemouth
Tottenham Predicted Starting Line up

Chelsea Team News, Updates and Facts
Chelsea Team News
Frank Lampard will be without defender Fikayo Tomori, midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek, and striker Olivier Giroud due to injuries for this fixture.
Chelsea Key Man
Tammy Abraham had been a man on fire for a while, but the train has come off the tracks recently. He has 11 PL goals to his name, but he has just one in four matches, meaning he could be due to register yet again in this match with their London rivals. N’Golo Kante will also be his usual important self here. He’s got a big part to play in the midfield battle, ranging all over the park, and he’s also able to get forward and score goals much better than he used to. It makes him even more vital to their cause.
Chelsea Team Form
