Cante Is Back, How Chelsea Will Line Up To Face Spurs?

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel will hope to have N'Golo Kante available for Sunday's Premier League trip to North London for derby against Tottenham Hotspur.There is hope that Kante will be fit enough to make the squad this time around, but Mateo Kovacic will not want to relinquish his place in midfield after finding the back of the net against Aston Villa last weekend.

Hakim Ziyech earned a start in midweek but only lasted 63 minutes before being hooked for Kai Havertz, and the German could be reintroduced to the first XI here alongside Mason Mount. 

Cesar Azpilicueta, Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger shown good performance and are expected not to miss in the defensive role. 

Romelu Lukaku is expected to play number 9 as usual. His header against Zenit represented his fourth goal from as many matches this season, but he has only managed one goal in 13 previous appearances against Tottenham.
