For Chelsea, Sunday has already started off very, very well.  After ending Liverpool's title hopes last year, the Reds repaid Chelsea by knocking off Manchester City at home. Now, all that's left to make this Sunday a truly memorable one is  a second straight victory over Spurs at Wembley.

Jose Mourinho's hands are somewhat tied in the midfield, with the absence of both Nemanja Matic and John Obi Mikel, but those two aside, he has a fully fit squad from which to choose. His reaction to the absence of that pair is surprising:

Chelsea starting lineup (4-3-3):
Petr Cech | Cesar Azpilicueta, John Terry, Gary Cahill, Branislav Ivanovic | Cesc Fabregas, Kurt Zouma, Ramires | Eden Hazard, Diego Costa, Willian

Substitutes from: Thibaut Courtois, Loic Remy, Didier Drogba, Filipe Luis, Oscar, Juan Cuadrado, Nathan Ake

Tottenham will counter with the following:

Spurs XI: Hugo Lloris, Kyle Walker, Jan Vertonghen, Eric Dier, Danny Rose, Ryan Mason, Nabil Bentaleb, Nacer Chadli, Christian Eriksen, Andros Townsend, Harry Kane

Spurs Bench: Ben Davies, Michel Vorm, Fazio, Moussa Dembele, Eric Lamela, Fernando Torres Roberto Soldado, Ben Stambouli

As always, enjoy the game and don't link or direct to any illegal streams of the match. Up the Chels!
