Chelsea expected starting lineup against Spurs: Defender to start in midfield


Chelsea face Spurs at Wembley in the Premier League this season. The Champions are going through a mini-crisis at the moment with injuries and suspensions and Conte is rumoured to be unhappy with the transfer window so far. Cesc Fabregas and Gary Cahill were sent off in the first game against Burnley leaving Conte with further selection headaches.

With new signing Bakayoko still out injured, Chelsea don’t have any senior midfielders to partner Kante. We expect Conte to pick David Luiz who has played in midfield before. This will of course weaken the defence as Gary Cahill is also out. In attack, Morata should start his first game after impressing in his subsitute appearance against Burnley. With Pedro also doubtful to be fit, Jeremie Boga and Willian will be the ones supporting Morata.

Spurs are clear favorites going into this game and this might be the perfect occasion to get rid of their Wembley blues where they struggled last year in the Champions League. Pochettino got the better of Conte last year when Chelsea were in rampant form, the task looks much easier this time out.
