Tottenham will look to extend their unbeaten run when they take on Chelsea at White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon. Here is the side we think Mauricio Pochettino will select for the game:

Goalkeeper: Hugo Lloris is certain to keep his place between the sticks with Michel Vorm once again among the subs.

Defence: Pochettino is expected to make two changes to his back four with Kyle Walker and Danny Rose both likely to get recalls to the starting eleven after being rested for last night’s Europa League win over Qarabag.

Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld will continue in the middle of defence but Kieran Trippier and Ben Davies are likely to drop to the bench.

Midfield: Mousa Dembele was also given a breather on Thursday night so he too is expected to come back in with Ryan Mason the man most likely to make way. Eric Dier should continue to marshall the midfield with Deli Alli playing just in front in a more advanced role. Nabil Bentaleb is likely to once again be ruled out through injury.

Attack: Harry Kane was the match-winner last night and he should continue to lead the line up front against Chelsea on Sunday. Christian Eriksen is a cert to keep his place while Son Heung-Min should continue in attack with Erik Lamela struggling with a groin injury while Nacer Chadli is also on the sidelines.

Here is how I think we’ll see Spurs line-up:

Back Spurs to win at 8/1 or Chelsea at 8/1 plus money back if you lose

What do you think? What line-up would you like to see start?

    Alli is out through suspension, you dunce. Dembele will slot next to Dier with Lamela, Son, and Eriksen playing in the forward 3 behind Kane.

    Deli Alli is suspended so definitely won’t be in the starting line up.

    @aceboogie’s right. Alli’s suspended. Sloppy journalism there.

    Lamela’s injured so Mason to slot in with Dier behind eriksen dembele and son left to right. Not bad!

    I haven’t seen anything ruling Lamela out completely. If he doesn’t regain fitness then either Clinton or Townsend will get the nod. I just had a feeling Alli would get in trouble last weekend, after 60 minutes I said to my friends that he should be taken off. It is a shame that he will miss this derby. I think yellow card accumulation suspensions are the most idiotic thing.

    Mason with Dier behind Son Dembele and Eriksen is indeed a possibility too, probably the most likely now that I think about it. Good point Chivers.

    This is embarrassing. Alli is suspended. These are the absolute basics. You shouldn’t be writing articles when the people reading them know more than you. Pathetic.

    Chelsea are a bunch of overpaid prima donnas with no team ethic.
