CHE vs TOT Dream11 Team : Tottenham Hotspur take on Chelsea in a top of the table clash in the London derby. The winner can go top of the table with Liverpool dropping points to Brighton on Saturday which raises the stakes of this game. Jose Mourinho will be wary of his former player turned manager, Frank Lampard, whose season has been great despite a slow start to the season. They are on a 6-game winning streak and haven’t lost a game since their 2-0 loss to Liverpool in September. Tottenham Hotspur too is on a very good run this season with 6 wins, 2 draws and a loss out of 9 games and have not lost a game since the opening matchday when they faced Everton. The two sides have already faced each other once this season in the Carabao Cup where a 1-1 draw saw Spurs beat Chelsea on penalties.

A) Chelsea Team News
Injury Report, Unavailability: Frank Lampard is only without Billy Gilmour for this game.
Doubtful: Christian Pulisic and Kai Havertz are back in contention to start but it is unlikely that they will be rushed back. They might come off the bench for the CHE vs TOT Dream 11 Prediction.
Expected changes: Chelsea are likely to go for the same lineup that beat Newcastle at St. James’ Park. Thiago Silva may replace Antonio Rudiger in defence as the Brazilian’s experience will be valuable for this fixture. Upfront, Tammy Abraham will start with Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech playing on either side of him. Mason Mount will start in attacking midfield with impressive full-back pairing, Ben Chilwell and Reece James keeping their place on the flanks.
Chelsea Starting XI (probable):
Edouard Mendy (GK)
B) Tottenham Hotspur Team News
Injury Report, Unavailability: Erik Lamela is the only confirmed absentee for Tottenham.
Doubtful: Steven Bergwijn, Toby Alderweireld and Giovani Lo Celso are all doubts but could get a start for this game.
Expected changes: Matt Doherty is back and will slot back into his preferred right-back spot. Steven Bergwijn may get a look-in at left-wing as well playing alongside Tanguy Ndombele who has been excellent of late. New signings, Sergio Reguilon and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, too have been very impressive and should start at their respective left-back and defensive midfield spots. Harry Kane who has had an incredible season so far will continue to lead the line with Heung-Min Son on the right flank.
Tottenham Starting XI (probable):
Hugo Lloris (GK)

Bet365 and Bet Victor have offered odds of 2.15 in for a Chelsea win with a win for the away team at 3.30. Chelsea and Spurs have both won their last 5 games which makes this an even more exciting matchup. Chelsea will look to use their home advantage and have scored 8 goals in their last 3 games.

Captain Options –
Timo Werner – Timo Werner has been in fine form for Chelsea with 7 goals and 3 assists in 13 starts. The German international has also created 11 goal-scoring chances with a pass accuracy of 81% and 15 successful dribbles completed.
Hakim Ziyech – The Moroccan has been added to the Chelsea squad a little late due to injury but has had a very impressive impact on the squad with 2 goals and 3 assists in just 5 starts so far. He has also created 17 goal-scoring chances this season and 6 accurate crosses.
Tammy Abraham – Abraham has had a fringe role this season but has made the most out of it with 4 goals and 2 assists in 7 starts this season. He has also created 12 goal-scoring chances. Playing alongside Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech he will look to increase those numbers.
Tottenham Hotspur –
Harry Kane – Harry Kane has exceeded expectations this season with 8 goals and 10 assists this season across all competitions. He has been playing in a deeper role that enables him to distribute balls to the likes of Son and now, Bergwijn. Kane has also created 28 goal-scoring chances, leading to 19 key passes.
Heung-Min Son – Playing next to Kane, Son too has been having an excellent season with 10 goals and 3 assists so far. He has provided 18 key passes out of 20 created chances. With a passing accuracy of 82% and shot on target rate of 80%, he will be a real threat to the Chelsea defence.
Tanguy Ndombele – After a rather disappointing 2019/20 season, Tanguy Ndombele has stepped up this season with a goal and 4 assists across all competitions. He has also created 10 chances this season with a passing accuracy of 84%. He has succeeded 17 dribbles which is quite impressive.
Differential Picks –
Mason Mount – Mason Mount has a goal and 2 assists this season but has been very good creatively. He has created 19 chances with 14 key passes and a passing accuracy of 89%. He has also completed 12 accurate dribbles and 8 accurate crosses.
Sergio Reguilon – The prolific Spaniard has been great for Tottenham this season with 3 assists already, with one coming against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup this season. He has created 9 goal-scoring chances while also completing 8 successful dribbles. He also has 23 clearances and 8 interceptions this season.
