As Chelsea set to have a strong test of their 10 matches unbeaten run against Tottenham later today, here is the necessary team news that you need to know in order to know what to be expecting in the 'top of the table' match.



Christian Pulisic has been declared fit for Chelsea’s top of the table clash with Tottenham.

The USA winger has recovered from a hamstring strain and is in contention to be included in Sunday’s showdown at Stamford Bridge.Pulisic hasn’t played since coming on a late substitute against Krasnodar last month. It will be recalled that he tweaked his hamstring in the warm-up ahead of the 3-0 win at Burnley on October 31 and has spent the best part of a month trying to resolve the issue with Chelsea’s medical staff.

Physios took extra precaution with the 22-year-old as Frank Lampard tries to come up with a regime to manage long-term muscle issues.

“In the short term, it’s the game that is in front of us. When you are playing rivals, it’s important to try to win those games and it can be very good for confidence.

“They are playing very well. They beat Manchester City last week and you can imagine the bounce in confidence that gave them. We are in a similar position.

“In the bigger picture, there is a long way to go. I don’t think it is going to be absolutely telling for either of us, but in this moment we prepare to try to win the game and get points against a close rival.”

Lampard completed a league double over his former mentor last season, but added: “I certainly don’t put anything on fact that we beat them twice. Every year will bring something else.

“Tottenham invested heavily in the break and brought in some very good players, experienced players, top-level players. That will strengthen their squad no doubt and they already had a really strong squad before that.

“I’m expecting a tough match whatever. Their start has shown that. They’ve got the squad that they have and the fact that they also have depth in their squad, which was shown last night in the fact that they can make so many changes in the Europa League.”
