Terry Out, -4-5-1 – Chelsea Likely Line Up For Tottenham Clash

Over the last week, Chelsea have won two matches out of two but the match against Tottenham will proof a tougher test.

John Terry injury

After the opening day defeat to Manchester United, Tottenham are yet to lose any Premier League match and so it will take an impressive performance over 90 mins for Chelsea to be able to outscore the youthful and in-form Mauricio Pochettino side.

Chelsea are currently ridden to 15th place on the Premier League log after 13 matches and looks like they will not qualify for Champions League. The Lily Whyte will be looking to tip Chelsea to the Champions League spot and so we are in for a super Sunday London derby.

Chelsea will be without John Terry and Ramires after they picked injuries in the Champions league but Mourinho has a big squad to select from.

This is how we expect Chelsea to line up against Tottenham


Begovic has been standing in for Courtois and he has to be on top of his game not to conceded against Kane.


The defence of Chelsea has been very well in the last two games but one would argue that the opposition will not be as difficult as Tottenham.

Nonetheless, Ivanovic should be back as the right back while Azpilicueta be used on the left flank. In the absence of Terry, Zouma and Cahill will be at the heart of defence for the Blues.


The Midfielders of Chelsea are gradually finding their rhythm. Matic will be the anchor man and he should be flanked by Fabregas and Willian in midfield.


Pedro supports the defence a lot and we expect him to play from the right flank while Hazard be retained on the left flank. Costa is without a better option but he will have to be more prolific to score against Tottenham.
