Predicted Tottenham Hotspur Lineup Vs Chelsea: Can Pochettino Make An Early Season Statement?

Tottenham Hotspur started their season in confident fashion, beating Newcastle United, who are making a comeback into the Premier League in the new season after spending the last one in the Championship. The players of the North London club were almost flawless in their execution, making it a perfect beginning to their pursuit of glory this season.

The Spurs ended their last term in touching distance of Chelsea, who went on to lift the Premier League trophy for the sixth time in their history. However, the Blues will have to be more than careful against their opponents, when they go into their second encounter of the season against Tottenham.

Mauricio Pochettino might look to make no change to the winning combination and will be looking to stick with the same lineup that paid off well in the last match against the Magpies. However, the Spurs boss will also be worried about the injury which has been sustained by his first choice right back Kieran Trippier, who will be unavailable for the forthcoming match as well. Heung Min-Son, who came on as a substitute in the last match, will again be expected to start from the bench.


The defence consisting of Kyle Walker-Peters, Jan Vertonghen, Toby Alderweireld and Ben Davies played to the best of their abilities and made sure that the Magpies could not get past them and score goals. Pochettino will want his defenders to play the same way they did in the last match and keep the Chelsea forwards at bay.


The midfield, consisting of Mousa Dembele and Eric Dier in a defensive role, dished out a gallant performance and helped to keep the possession to themselves for long durations. The three players assisting in the attack consisted of Moussa Sissoko, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen and they displayed a lot of efficiency as well as sharpness and will be expected to play the same way against their neighbours from West London as well.


With Harry Kane, the top scorer in both the previous seasons spearheading their attack, the Spurs can boast of one of the best attacks in the Premier League and will be looking to repeat their clinical performance against the Magpies in the clash of titans at Wembley, when they will be taking on the reigning Premier League champions Chelsea.


Hugo Lloris, Kyle Walker-Peters, Jan Vertonghen, Toby Alderweireld, Ben Davies, Mousa Dembele, Eric Dier, Moussa Sissoko, Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen, Harry Kane.
