Tottenham will look to get off to a positive start at their temporary Wembley home when they entertain defending champions Chelsea this afternoon.

Mauricio Pochettino has been handed a boost with the news that Kieran Trippier has been passed fit to return at right-back after recovering from injury so he replaces Kyle Walker-Peters.

Victor Wanyama also returns alongside Moussa Dembele in midfield while Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen once again support Harry Kane in attack.

Chelsea hand a start to summer signing Tiemour Bakayoko as he lines-up alongside N’Golo Kante in midfield while Victor Moses returns from suspension.

Christensen replaces the suspended Gary Cahill in defence while Alvaro Morata is handed his full debut up front after scoring from the bench last weekend.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:

Tottenham

Lloris, Trippier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Davies, Dier, Wanyama, Dembele, Eriksen, Dele, Kane

Subs: Vorm, Walker-Peters, Wimmer, Winks, Sissoko, Son, Janssen

Chelsea

Courtois, Christensen, Luiz, Rüdiger, Azpilicueta, Bakayoko, Kanté, Alonso, Moses, Willian, Morata
