Chelsea have been playing better football of late, especially since the completion of the most recent international break. Last weekend, they managed to snap their three-match losing skid, before going to Israel for a convincing victory in the Champions League.
On Sunday, the Blues face a tough test, against a Tottenham Hotspur team that has been playing very well, and currently sits fifth in the Premier League. This fixture didn't provide much to be joyful about last season, and while Chelsea have historically had a goof time at White Hart Lane, it's easy to look at the way this season has unfolded and look at this one with a bit of dread.
Jose Mourinho has opted for the following lineup on Sunday, in hopes of continuing to climb the table, and hurting a top four rival (seriously) in the process:
Chelsea team v Tottenham: Begovic; Ivanovic (c), Zouma, Cahill, Azpilicueta; Fabregas, Matic; Willian, Oscar, Pedro; Hazard. #CFC— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) November 29, 2015
Chelsea subs today: Amelia, Djilobodji, Baba Rahman, Mikel, Loftus-Cheek, Kenedy, Diego Costa. #CFC— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) November 29, 2015
Meanwhile, Spurs will counter with the following group:
Tottenham team: Lloris (c), Walker, Alderweirald, Vertonghen, Rose, Dier, Mason, Dembele, Son, Eriksen, Kane. #CFC— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) November 29, 2015
Tottenham subs: Worm, Trippier, Wimmer, Onomah, Carroll, Lamela, Njie. #CFC— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) November 29, 2015
