Tottenham Hotspur vs. Chelsea, Premier League: Pick your starting lineup

Chelsea return to what was once known as Three Point Lane but now is probably more known as Please Not In The Face Harry Kane Lane.  Spurs' and England's and Real Madrid's Harry Kane put Chelsea to the sword that day with some ridiculously great finishing (plus some very current season-esque Chelsea defending) and he will no doubt look to do the same on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Spurs as a team are on a six-match unbeaten run in all competitions (five wins).  Pochettino's gathering the plaudits from all corners; Spurs' top four challenge is being talked about with seriousness rather than stifled sniggers.  This seems like a rather ideal set of circumstances for Chelsea to come in and break some hearts.  Enemies of football and all that jazz.

With two wins from two (albeit against Norwich and Maccabi), and generally improving play (if not consistency from all the players), confidence is slowly returning.  Not yet returning are Thibaut Courtois and Radamel Falcao.  Joining them on the sidelines are John Terry (ankle) and Ramires (muscular injury).  That's three probable starters out, in all likelihood.

Three points here would be tremendous; anything less would feel like the dam is about to burst once again.  Given all that pressure, who would you pick as your starting eleven?
