Chelsea host Tottenham in an early London derby in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

Both capital clubs began their campaigns with three points but achieved these victories with contrasting ease. While Chelsea eked out a 1-0 advantage away to Everton, relying upon Jorginho's penalty, Spurs roared back from an early deficit against Southampton to record the largest winning margin of the season's first weekend.

Chelsea team news

Thomas Tuchel is expected to have a fully fit squad to choose from after Kalidou Koulibaly shook off a bout of cramp on his debut. Although, Timo Werner is no longer an option off the bench after the German forward re-joined RB Leipzig, leaving Chelsea with just one first-team striker.

Since last weekend's win, Chelsea have managed to prise Carney Chukwuemeka away from Aston Villa but are yet to seal a deal for Barcelona's Frenkie de Jong.

Chelsea predicted lineup vs Tottenham

Chelsea Starting 11: Mendy; Azpilicueta, Silva, Koulibaly; James, Kante, Jorginho, Chilwell; Mount, Sterling, Havertz
Bench: Arrizabalaga, Chalobah, Cucurella, Loftus-Cheek, Kovacic, Gallagher, Chukwuemeka, Ziyech, Pulisic

Tottenham team news

Despite having five summer signings available for selection last weekend, Antonio Conte didn't start any of them. That number has been boosted to six after Richarlison completed his ban last weekend for throwing a flare in victory against Chelsea during the previous campaign.

However, Oliver Skipp remains sidelined with a fracture in his foot which Conte described as "a bit unlucky".

Tottenham predicted lineup vs Chelsea

Tottenham Starting 11: Lloris; Romero, Dier, Davies; Emerson, Hojbjerg, Bentancur, Sessegnon; Kulusevski, Kane, Son
Bench: Forster, Sanchez, Lenglet, Spence, Doherty, Bissouma, Perisic, Gil, Moura

Chelsea vs Tottenham score prediction

Tuchel and Conte pitted their wits against one another three times in the space of 18 days last January, with the German's Chelsea comfortably coming out on top each time. Tuchel also beat Nuno Espirito Santo's sad Spurs side, using four different systems as he repeatedly got the better of his opposite number.

Romelu Lukaku started all four of those London derbies but has since been replaced by the very different - but abundantly talented - Raheem Sterling. In the six months since that series, Conte has undoubtedly improved Spurs as the squad adapts to his demanding methods.

In what may be an enthralling - if not explosive - match, the pair could walk away with a point apiece.

Prediction: Chelsea 1-1 Tottenham
